I have been reduced to hand pollination of my garden some years too. And I am apparently really bad at it, because while I had lovely healthy vines I had no tomatoes or melons. Bees rock.


Fortunately I've only been reduced to hand pollination on the apricots (as they flower to early) and am pretty bad at it too
not one apricot this year


You have a queen this year =]

, you can get very inexpensive hives or build one..

That's my hope... tho bit nervous about having a hive so near
am phobic about Wasps, as I stung by a small swarm as child, so tend to run from bee's too.. hence why I really really like the dark bee's
as they do not stir my cowardly flight response

weather is colder now, have you contacted the local beekeepers they could give you advice? if not try a little home for the winter and then you can upgrade the hive next year.

keep me posted I love bees and good luck. Try some clover as well =]

I had not thought of the local beekeepers
thanks for the tips


I had contacted the Sussex university team who are looking for native ones and hoped to get some info from them as to what to do..

We do have quite a bit of clover in the garden, in fact this year it has replaced most of the grass
how would that help?
thanks again

As I undertand it, he bred African Killer Bees with Cockroaches......

if this is anything like those love bugs the moron at FSU engineered, we're all going to suffer.

i can see it already," millions killed by man made bee's, authority have no way of stopping them, billions expected to die in within 1 year." hows this for man made armageddon.

no

nothing natural about electrical smog et al..how is it natural ?


Whoa...who said anything about elecrical smog? The OP was concerning paracites? They are being bread to defend against a paracite which is a natural thing. If they engeneered to fight the effects of electrical smog then I wouldn't have said anything.

yes you are right sorry I was rude..
the other reason came out in the thread , I am aware of many purported reasons for the decline.

This could just be one solution , the video posted by davespanners is rather good on the evolution of the bee and the mites.

thanks and sorry

Results: Indestructible killer bees.

Imagine that. Killer bees but bigger, badder, and tougher! Can't wait to get stung.

Lets just hope this does not turn out like the "killer bees" strain that was experimenteed with in the 70's that is now an issue all over the southern USA...

Frankenbees scare me...


You read my mind. I was thinking the same thing. When you go messing with nature, nature sometimes gets mad and messes with you.

how did he make a brush so small they can use it?
do the bees eat the mites?
so are they carnivores?
so they dont make honey any more.
just sit there and groom each other!
indestructible bees?
just use two bricks or TNT.

The pyrethrin in the GMO corn actually stimulates mite production instead of killing mites at low concentrations.

To kill the mites you simply feed the bees sugar mixed with crisco. The crisco will kill the mites.

Regardless of whether CCD is caused by mites, chemical spraying or any other problem, this new strain of bees seems to have been bred to do some good by encouraging the cleaning and grooming of eachother and just the control of the mite problem is an amazing start and will maybe encourage all round healthier bees with more resistance to any other problem.

I don't think these are man made genetically modified bees but have been created by interbreeding between existing types and I think it's pure genius of this apiarist to have concentrated on this and had the patience to see it this far.

It's like ..... really cool.....all the bees grooming and chilling out after a hard days foraging. Nice! What a bonus for already amazing close communities eh?

My Grandpa was a beekeeper, a good one. I miss his bees honey and we always had the pure honeycomb type. Everytime I see a bee I am reminded of him, he was always inventing new gizmos and gadgets for his beekeeping and wrote quite a few articles too. When the serious news of CCD was all around I wondered what he would be doing to help and wished he was there to discuss it. He's in the big hive in the sky now.

Long live the bees.
and long live the beekeepers, they know about bees, but because of that, they know some pretty interesting things about us humans too.
Smart bunch.

Well done to this guy! If this is successful he should get a huge 'Look Who Helped Saved The World!' trophy.



I agree that the declining bee populations are an underrated, yet significant threat to our survival.

But first, my inner-skeptical bureau chief has this to say..

"In b4 INDESTRUCTIBLE KILLER BEES."

Now who can tell me that, that would not be a terrifying mess.

I just thought I'd add this for anyone interested. probably THE best place to start for my fellow Brits over there and anyone who loves bees.

The British Beekeepers Association

Plenty of links and a great deal of information available. They have a fantastic selection of books, some gifts and even plans for hives.

Individual bee assosiations can be found here, useful for anyone looking for local help.

My Grandpa was Chairman of the "East Devon Beekeepers"

bzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Thanks for that link! My girlfriend is always talking about keeping bees so I will show her.
I've tried to persuade her to just start with the one Bee and see if she likes it but she remains unconvinced.

Sounds Good.

Now if one could breed the Bee to adjust to the Earths poll shift, that would be impressive.

It would be a good idea to breed as many bees as possible for local farms to keep them on site to make up for the numbers of bees that will lose their way in their annual migration during the poll shift. They simply 'lose their way', magnetically, during migration since the Earths magnetic North is 'adjusting' and many bees perish in the process.

Chemtrails don't help neither.
Core-exit destroys all in it's way.
This must Stop ASAP!

I'm involved in this, breeding bees (and other forms) that is.....furry gold.....from out of 'this' world and much more valuable than the yellow metal for 'obvious' reasons.

Without the Bee, much life would perish. Most should be 'aware' of this fact though ^^^^^ message is for those crippled minds brought up in The State education sisdumb.

P.S.
Seed banks not a bad idea either.
You will see soon enough.

I don't know enough about pole shifts or Bees to state anything conclusively, but isn't it likely that Bees have already survived such a shift (if they do actually occur) how long ago was the last pole shift? How long have Bees been on the Earth as a species?

I think its great that this guy is actually trying to fix a severe problem...but it seems like playing god by genetically breeding these things might bring on an agressive be worse than the killer bee...then we are faced with a giant problem...some more research should have been done before releasing these things...
