Child labour? WTF?

It's a holistic problem. Making it all about pesticide is to overlook other factors.

Until they come after you
in the form of a 50,000 strong
Black Mass.

Not by God, those Epipens
aren't cheap.

Wait... John, is that really you? What are you doing here, and why are you calling yourself 'Phage'?

PS, Einstein didn't say that. And, North America didn't have honeybees before the Europeans arrived, about 1622.


Although true that the western hemisphere didn't have the European honey bee before European contact, there were different species of honey bees here. The bumble bee is but one example.

Their are many insect pollinators besides bees. Of course, like many other insects, they are specialized to pollinate certain plants. I've been seeing a lot of European honey bees around my place this year, at one point the house was being swarmed it seemed.

Since I've cleared the trees out from around the house, many different wildflowers have been taking over. I've seen many different pollinators including honey bees, bumble bees (at least 3 types), hover flies, wasps, hornets (many kinds), butterflies, ants, and a number of others.

Your point is valid concerning native plants and their native pollinators, but the European honey bee is a general pollinator that visits almost any flower and is invaluable to our monoculture farming system.

I have to admit that when I read your posts, it's John Lithgow's voice I'm hearing in my head. If they make a movie about you Phage, they should have John play your character.

I dont know about Monsanto products being the biggest killer of bees , i thought the bee mite was their biggest threat .
en.wikipedia.org...


As of mid-2012, Australia is thought to be free of the mite.[9][10] In early 2010, an isolated subspecies of bee was discovered in Kufra (southeastern Libya) that appears to be free of the mite.[11] The Hawaiian islands of Maui, Kauai, Molokai, and Lanai are all free of the mite.


Not many places still free of the mite .

"Without honey bees, human race will be over in 4 years"

It can be attributed to Maurice Maeterlinck in his book The Life of the Bee, first publish in 1901.

Maurice Maeterlinck is a Nobel Prize winner from Belgium.

Something is killing them, Chemtrails maybe? The mites have always been around, so I do not think they could kill an entire species everywhere.
