by now 2 yrs later, the commercial honey bees die off is probably nearing 100%. obviously much of the die off is from excess pesticide/herbicide use
(ie, Monsanto Roundup) and engineered toxins in GMO crop pollen.
Monsanto next move looks to be to patent bees that are GMO to be pesticide/herbicide tolerant.
u will then have to buy their bees but you will not be able to breed/raise more bees to sell.
furthermore, once you buy Monsanto bees you will be locked in for life. beacise if you decide to revert to natural bee population for your farm
pollination, Monsanto will sue you for any hybridizations that occur into your local beehives.
they have done this already with farmers whose crops were inadvertently hybridized with GMO crop, and gone after them for stealing Monsanto genes.
they have ruined many farmers who do not submit to them as an agricultural God, that is their business.
its clear Monsanto is taking advantage of this total die-off to monopolize the commercial bee population with its proprietary GE bee. and these
genetic modifications will contaminate the native bee population with devastating unnatural 'Frankenbee' consequences although Monsanto
sees/purports it as 'strenghtening' the bee populations overall.
