You’ve probably heard for years that bees are in dire straights. Which is true…but it’s probably not the bees you’re thinking of. A few years ago, Verge Media interviewed a bee researcher about what’s really at stake for bees, global agriculture, and all the almonds you’ve ever eaten.
Climate alarmists spread myths and declare impending doom.
The irony is that if passed, the Saving America’s Pollinators Act would actually be detrimental to bees and other pollinating species, while harming America’s farmers. By Henry I.

If correctly used, a University of Guelph research team found no colony-level risk to honeybees from neonic pesticides after going through a number of published and unpublished manuscripts. Upon the request of Bayer and Syngenta, researchers at the University of Gelph, headed by toxicologist Keith Solomon and aide teacher Gladys Stephenson, examined 64 papers from… Read More Study: Correct neonic use reveals no honeybee colony risk
A bee specialist out of Switzerland named Jean-Daniel Charrière was interviewed by Swissinfo in which Dr. Charrière states that while neonic pesticides should be concerned about neonic pesticides, but the biggest threat to bee populations and the focus of policies to help them should be on vorra mites. He is quoted as saying: For the… Read More Swiss bee expert: focus on vorra mites, not pesticides
