1,500 Colonies of Honeybees Die in Campeche

1,500 colonies of honeybees, from a community in Hopelchen, Campeche, died this February 6 from the fumigation of Monsanto’s GMO’s in a nearby area.

This has directly impacted more than 50 impoverished families, who recently suffered a poor corn crop due to drought. The community was relying on their sale of organic honey to compensate for the lack of maize. The current honey left by the bees is also lost due to the contamination of pesticides and transgenic pollen.

Alvaro Mena, a mayan farmer from Hopelchen and member of the Network in Defense of Maize, estimated losses at nearly 10 million pesos and is the equivalent of one year’s worth of corn and honey production for the community.

Fumigation has intensified where GM crops have been planted in Mexico. GMO’s are known to be resistant to pesticides and are planted in large monocultures, applying huge amounts of Roundup. It is no accident says Mena: it is the toxic onslaught that comes with GM crops and the threat of allowing millions of acres of GM Maize to be planted.

GMO'S cause lipomas?

I just did a search on GMO's and this automatically popped up, which means a lot of people are doing searches on it. Are people getting lipomas tumors? See for yourself.

Here is a website that points the finger at GMO's causing alzheimers disease, which is on the rise.

Here Harvard researchers point the finger at GMO's for causing crohns disease.

There was never any research done on GMO's from the beginning, I know the GMO's are deadly to bees. How deadly are GMO's to humans?

Taking Initiative for the Survival of the Honeybee

How can I help prevent the decline of the honeybee? Become a Bee Guardian http://www.backyardhive.com/ which is a great addition to help a garden and fruit trees be more productive, and you get your own honey and beeswax as an added benefit. Beeswax has many uses around the house and is a great emulsifier which is a most popular ingredient used in making cosmetics and candles...

Save the organic honey!

Used to buy it here, now....all are feeding their bees HFCS. That's what's sold to bee keepers. Unless they go back to sugar as they should [yes, you have to 'feed' bees in addition to what they gather] I won't buy the honey.
Between Monsanto and the crooked FDA it's getting more difficult to get 'clean' food.
Poor bees!

horrific and worrying news

Without bees our food supply will be in dire trouble. Orchardists are dependent on bees for flower pollination.
What's truly sick is that I can't find any current news where farmers are rallying FOR GMOs and people who are awake don't want them, either. The only entities that want GMOs are Big Corp Monsanto, the politicians and judges who are getting payed off by Monsanto, scientists who are getting paid off by Monsanto, and the UN who is in partnership with Monsanto to get its Codex Alimentarious moving along so its depopulation program can start showing significant decreases.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

There are lots of different kinds of bees

that could be used for pollination, they just don't make honey.

Lots of bees for pollination

but not enough when they are needed, always need time to ramp up. The Almond groves for example bloom in February and early March in California, but there are few insects of any amount during this time. The beekeepers are busy feeding hives prior to almond bloom for ramping up populations in bee hives. Without the honeybee there would be very few almonds for purchase. There is already a shortage of bees for pollination, in the past 10 years hive rental has gone from $35 to $175 for almond pollination.

Also most bee hives used for pollination make very little honey, they are too busy traveling the highway to next pollination job.

Thanks for a bump

Now we know why so many bees died in America.

This is breaking news.
Sending it to Drudge Report.
Hope it goes viral.
