Elected Official Denies Pesticide-Bee Death Connection

by Christina Sarich, Natural Society:

Want proof that our representatives are likely taking handouts from Syngenta, Bayer, and other Big Ag makers of bee and butterfly killing neonicotinoids? Elected representative Rodney Davis of Illinois, who also happens to be the bee health committee chairman appointed to study pesticide and herbicide connections to colony collapse disorder, is singing the praises of neonicotinoids (neonics).

Davis claims that the bee-killing neonics have nothing to do with the recent findings of numerous other scientific studies showing that the pesticide class is likely killing off pollinators. He says that it is the Varroa mite which is to blame, not Syngenta, Bayer, Dow, Monsanto and other toxic chemical makers.

    This is very serious! I think it is also possible that the geoengineering chemicals are a kill source. It is easy to dismiss the importance of the little bee to human life. Bees are the primary source of polination, without polination crops do not produce and we do not eat. I have two bee colonies, here are some interesting bee facts:

    *There are 3 kinds of bees in a hive. one queen, workers and drones
    *A hive in the summer can have 30,000 to 80,000 bees
    *Bees work so hard there life span is only 4-6 weeks
    *The queen will lay about 1,500 eggs per day
    *A bee will easily fly 5 miles per day
    *Bees are the only insect that make food for humans
    *Bees can fly 15 mph
    *A bees wings beat 200 times per second or 12,000 times per minute
    *A bee must collect nectar from about 2 million flowers to make 1 pound of honey
    *It takes 556 bees to collect 1 pound of honey
    *A bee makes about 1/12th of a teaspoon on honey in her lifetime
    *Bees fly more than one time around the world (in distance) to gather a pound of honey
    *Honey has natural perservatives and bacteria can’t grow in it
    *Honey was found in the tombs of Egypt and it was still edible

    Bees are amazing little things and very important to our existance.
