Are honey bees being killed off by chemically coated crop seeds?

(NaturalNews) A class of insecticide that is applied to seeds and taken up into plant tissue may be responsible for much of the widespread decline in honeybee populations, increasing numbers of researchers and environmentalists are suggesting.

Starting in 2005, beekeepers in the United States first reported large numbers of bees mysteriously disappearing, and since then the problem has spread to different parts of the world.

I ran across a report about this, I believe out of the UK.

The scientists found that it is the frequency of cell phones that disorientate the bees. It appears the bees use the same frequency.

Let me guess, people would rather the bees die and there fore our food cannot be pollinated, therefore we die, before anyone gives up their phone.
