I just went outside during a break at work, and there is a tree out there that is always full of bees. I noticed several of them kept dropping to the ground, as if they had completely lost control of flight??? This tree is in a parking lot right next to an office building and there is nothing there to disturb it... I literally sat and watched these bees drop and fall to the group... and I got a very uneasy feeling about it.

So I took some pictures and posted them below.

As I'm posting them, my wife sends me a picture from the parking lot of the shopping center where she was shopping somewhere completely on the other side of town... I posted that below as well.

Then, as I'm just about to write the thread, I read this thread HERE about a C-class solar flare occurring within the same time frame as finding these bees dropping to the ground and dying.... what would need to be done to confirm a link between the two??? Could the X-ray emissions in the above post be killing the bees?

I don't know yet what the effect of the flare will be on Earth or it's magnetosphere, but having this happen at the same time as being in lunar perigee during a change in equinox (spring), this is a bad set of circumstances playing out....


WTF?

I'm posting the pictures... they are slow to get from my iPhone to email to ATS, but I'm posting them as I get them up.

This is exactly the kind of behavior my wife was talking about with dead bees falling from the sky like rain, and what I've been seeing where they land on the ground like they can't fly anymore and just die.

Here are the pics I took.... (pardon the iphone quality)

This is the tree that they usually buzz around... if you look closely enough, you can actually see a few them in these pictures:





Now, here are all the bees....











And last but not least, my wife was in a completely different part of town and sent me this picture from when she came out of the store:



So what's happening? I hope this is not signs of radiation....
That would be worse than a quake warning...

Thoughts anyone??

okay maybe you can answer this question for me But I remember seeing an aritcle about a pharmacutical company I forget if it was bayer or baxter that had an involvement with honey bee's dying off. Does anybod recall this story? and was it bayer or baxter?

Same thing is happening in Melbourne Australia.

Will post up pics later.

Well after reading/watching this thread HERE
I am suspicious of the Cali quake potential and the magnetic fluctuations mentioned by Berkland.
Are there any local recent reports on the bees by chance?

Peace,
spec

I vaguely recall the story, but this has only been happening recently... it's almost as if they are being poisoned or so incredibly disoriented that they just stay still because of how confused they are.... and if they stay there long enough without moving, perhaps the lack of body heat kills them???

Colony Collapse. remember the story of the birds and bees, its about a lot more than sex in my opinion.

You just got a local report..... I gave it.


Do you mean news sources from the local news around here?

EDIT: I haven't seen anything in the local news and I live in farming country / mountainous area. We notice things like this around here and nobody has said anything until the last 2-3 weeks or so.

wow, that is scary.
Australia is one of the last few countries not yet inffected with colony disease, or could this be somthing completly different

I think it might be something different, but it's going to be hard to find out... I'm just wondering if anyone else is seeing this happen as well? Specifically today? If so, it would correlate to the sun's activity, and that would be an amazing find....

The poles have shifted consistently since Earth began and yet there's no evidence of these mass die-off's occuring each time. Perhaps the solar wind is now so strong it is getting through the earth's magnetic shield. Animals that are particularly sensitive to magnetic changes might be seriously affected. It's easy to imagine something as small as a bee getting overwhelmed by a strong wind of EMR from the sun.

I live in a small rural town in Australia, i will go for a drive to some bee hives on my uncles farm right now. ill report back soon.

Im also believe that the sun is the reason for the bird and fish die-offs, and the current earth quakes and earth cracks etc. It is somehow playing with our gravity.

I think we need to start setting up Geiger counters on the pacific coast now.

I have a thriving vegetable garden with many flowers and I live in Southern California. I just went for a walk through my garden to see if I noticed anything unusual. I found no dead bees.

Come to think of it, though, there is something very unusual in my garden this week. There ARE no bees. I have been working in the garden all day, every day, for the past two weeks or so, and I have not noticed any bees. Come to think of it, I have not seen a single bee. Not even on my freshly blooming lavender, which is usually abuzz with bees.

o.O

Is there a wild hive in a tree near by or is there a large number of bees clustering around this tree.

The life span of a worker bee is about 1-4 months if you have 10000 bees in a hive some are dieing all the time.

There is also the problem of people that just don't like bees and will poison any they see.

Some people think killer bees every-time they see a bee and poison them.

Some pest control companies will spray yards for people with long term bee killing poisons.

The biggest laugh i have had was one idiot that would spray his fruit trees every spring because of all the bees.
then he would complain every fall that hes fruit trees never had any fruit on them.

Some city animal control people will spray any wild hive in there cities.

I have a wild hive in my yard and they have been there for years and you do see dead bees around the tree they are in but the hive is doing fine and i plan to try to trap a swarm this spring from it so that i can have another hive for the back yard to collect honey from.

From what I understand the Native Australia bee is a different species to that of the North American Honey Bee, with a distinctive difference distinguishing the two being the Australian one has no stinging mechanism. When all the American bees started dying a few years ago America started importing Australian ones as it was found that "Colony Collapse Disorder" did not affect them. On the other hand from what I have seen on the net through various "Citizen Scientists" is that Genetically modified crops with pesticides incorporated within vegetables such as corn are responsible. There's a link on here or youtube that I saw about 6 months ago about Montasaro (cant remember its name) and this Bee death link. I'm pretty sure this company also makes pesticides such as the household label mortein. My Mrs hates cockroaches and uses the stuff indiscriminately even though i point out the Eco-toxic warning (picture of dead fish and dead trees) on the packaging, with the disclaimer "VERY TOXIC TO BEES",

I also have wondered to the cause of these deaths and wonder what effect the shift in magnetic pole has. As bees communicate navigational information to each other of the position of pollinating flowers by doing the bee dance, with Japans quake moving the Magnetic North of the Earth 40 meters towards Russia according to Russian Seismologists, wouldn't this lead to a significant detrimental error in Navigation to the bees, which would resort them to be expending energy instead of collecting it to the point of death as they cannot successfully return to the hive?

On a side note my Mrs also could be defined as the "Perfect target audience" for Mainstream Commercial media, with her ignorance on the wider implications and impacts on her use of the product instead of just squashing some bugs also shows me just how good marketing can be in the name of "Convenience".

Hope this helps.....

The pesticide companies deny it, but I suspect those pesticides they are using to kill termites that cling to one termite and then he takes it back to the colony and the whole thing dies.

en.wikipedia.org...


Fipronil is a slow acting poison. When mixed with a bait, it allows the poisoned insect time to return to the colony or harborage. In cockroaches, the feces and carcass can contain sufficient residual pesticide to kill others in the same nesting site. In ants, the sharing of the bait among colony members assists in the spreading of the poison throughout the colony. With the cascading effect, the projected kill rate is about 95% in three days for ants and cockroaches.



Fipronil is toxic to bees and should not be applied to vegetation when bees are foraging.



Fipronil is also used as the active ingredient in flea control products for pets, field pest control for corn, golf courses and commercial turf.



Fipronil is one of the main chemical causes blamed for the spread of colony collapse disorder among bees. It has been found by the Minutes-Association for Technical Coordination Fund in France that even at very low nonlethal doses for bees, the pesticide still impairs their ability to locate their hive, resulting in large numbers of forager bees lost with every pollen-finding expedition

I live in Australia, Melbourne.

Excuse the blury pics, damn camera won't focus... Now i understand why all UFO pics are blury =P

Anyway enough of joking around.

Bees have been coming to my backyard to collect nectar for 20+ years. Perhaps more. I've only began to notice in the last 5-10 years or so that a increase of Bees are dropping dead. Literally. One minute they're buzzing around from bush to bush, and the next they're frozon sitting stationary on the ground. Minutes later they die. 100% of the time.

Their stinger is still intact and not missing. Sometimes their thorax has a dent in them. Most of the time though they just sit silently only moving if i touch them or blow on them... There's no wasps in the area and i don't see any birds swooping at them either...

Anyway here's the pics.

Honestly, I would leave California immediately. The signs are all pointing towards a seismic event there in the coming days and to me, this seems like yet another one.

It would be better to be safe than sorry I say.
