Let me say firstly :scary: And this is news that is NEW to ME so sorry if you are already aware of this :oops:

So the honey bee...what is happening to it.. :?:

Across the United States and around the world, the honey bee populations are mysteriously vanishing. Honey bee colony losses are not uncommon, however, this sort of disappearence is unprecedented. This honey bee colony loss is due to uncharacteristic bee behavior: bees are failing to return to the hive. :think:

Most beekeepers became convinced the problem was a new class of pesticides called "neonicontinoids."When honeybees take nectar, they ingest low levels of these neuro-active agents that destroy the nervous and immune systems of termites and other insects. The pesticide apparently hobbles a bee's ability to perform the bee waggle dance, which communicates the location of food sources.

But...

Jacobsen said that Bayer AG makes the main neonicontinoids. The Leverkusen, Germany-based company has said that its own research indicates that honey bees are exposed to only negligible amounts.

In addition, "France banned the neonicotinoids in 2001, and their bees are still struggling," Jacobsen said. :headscratch:

Is destroying the honey bee part of controlling the world food supply,if only for a limited time,is the honey bee decline proof of the worldwide chemtrailing,well one thing we do know is that the honey bee is struggling whether by accident or not and we need to act fast to save it. :!:

Plant the flowers etc in your garden to make a honey bee paradise,like me,help out these little chaps if you can,the cost of a few plants is a small price to pay :flop:
Which plants you ask,well try these:
Good nectar sources such as red clover, foxglove, bee balm, and joe-pye weed. For more information, see www.nappc.org.] :flop:

Hi Dr Jones

There is a popular point of view that Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) along with the beaching of whales , dolphins , not to mention migrating birds going astray etc, may be caused by HAARP Transmissions . Check out the link.

Thanks...but why NOW,HAARP has been around for years and the bees were ok... :headscratch:

Hi . This a quote from that link. Things appear to be getting a bit scary !

The test concluded that HAARP High Frequency transmissions can be detected in Canada, U.S. and Europe. It just so happens that the mysterious CCD problem seems to be taking place within the same region!

HAARP transitioned just prior to the Summer of 2006 to full power from 960 kW (kilowatts) to 3.6 mW (megawatts) which is an increase of almost 4 times the output and the technology was moved from DARPA control to full joint U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force operation as of Fiscal Year 2006.

CCD by most accounts began in the summer of 2006, some reports suggest that it may have been occurring in a limited scale for the previous few years. This corresponds with HAARP going to full power in 2006 and transmitting at 27% power output prior to this.

Hi sorry that I can't go over thousands of search results but I remember this being answered pretty emphatically & the latest counts were positive (or more positive than the previous ones)
I know someone prevalent once said if all the bees died humans would follow but I wouldn't worry about that. Nature is a remarkable thing that no amount of mankind can control entirely

Maybe the chemtrails have something to do with the bees dying.....?

I think the decline of the bee's could be a few factors not just one. Contributing facters could be extensive farming and the use of many different pesticides etc that also kill off the wild flowers. Also the hybrid genetically altered plants :censored: We have to also remember many people in cities and the outskirts of them are laying concrete and paving... having plants to look after doesn't fit in with people's busy lifestyles anymore :top:
We also should be taking into consideration the increase in atmospheric electromagnetic radiation as a result of the growing numbers of Mobil phones and wireless com towers! The increased radiation may be interfering with the bees’ ability to navigate!?!?! A study at Germany’s Landau University found that bees would not return to their hives when mobile phones were placed nearby. http://www.hese-project.org/hese-uk/en/issues/nature.php?id=bees

Jane Kennedy launches plan to halt declining bee numbers - 9th March 2009

Defra and the Welsh Assembly Government have today published ‘Healthy Bees’, a plan to protect and improve the health of honey bees in England and Wales.

The ten year plan was drafted in consultation with beekeeping organisations and aims to sustain honey bee populations by supporting beekeepers to ensure effective biosecurity measures are adopted to minimise risk from pests and disease.

This follows an investment of an extra £4.3 million to gather more information from beekeepers and undertake more research into the health of bees, announced by Environment Secretary Hilary Benn in January. Of this, £2 million over five years will contribute to a new research programme on pollinators, which is currently being developed with other funding partners.

The first stage of the plan will attempt to identify and make contact with perhaps as many as 20,000 amateur beekeepers to make sure that they are aware of the need to alert the National Bee Unit (NBU) to bee health problems and encourage them to register on BeeBase, its beekeepers database. This will help ensure that any new or existing health problems are identified.

The last two years have seen recorded losses of between 10 to 15 per cent in bee numbers although it is possible that real losses are significantly higher due to the number of beekeepers not in contact with the NBU.

Honey bees contribute directly to local food production and make an important contribution, through pollination, to improving the yield of some crops. They are susceptible to a variety of disease and environmental threats, some of which have increased significantly over the last five to 10 years.

Launching the plan today, Environment Minister Jane Kennedy said:

“Bees are just about the most hard working of insects. They help put food on our plates as they produce honey and pollinate other plants, many of which produce food themselves. We need to do all we can to safeguard the health of honey bees. This plan is a blueprint for doing that.

“The first step is to improve our contacts with all beekeepers so that we can ensure they take advantage of the free inspection and diagnostic services that the bee unit and its dedicated team of inspectors and scientists provide.

“That will help us pick up existing and emerging bee health problems and deal with them effectively.”

The plan describes the five main things we want to achieve, working with individual beekeepers, their associations and other stakeholders. These are:

1. To keep pests, diseases and other hazards to the lowest levels achievable.
2. To promote good standards of husbandry to minimise pest and disease risks and contribute to sustaining honey bee populations – prevention is better than cure.
3. To encourage effective biosecurity to minimise risk from pests, diseases and undesirable species.
4. To ensure that sound science underpins bee health policy and its implementation.
5. To get everyone to work together on bee health.

The plan also identifies the distinct roles and responsibilities of Government, beekeepers, their associations and other stakeholders in achieving these aims. A strengthened partnership, involving all interested parties, is essential if current and evolving threats to bee health are to be successfully identified and addressed.

Action to implement the plan will now be taken forward in consultation with beekeepers’ representatives.
