There are more than enough samples.Why not conduct a research on them?
There must be evidence among those pile of dead mass.
Extract them,measure and collect data.

"Many countries are seeing significant declines in their bee populations. Naturally, climate change, pesticides, and viruses are just three of the
commonly proposed possible culprits. However, the Indian researchers thought there might be something else involved, so they decided to perform a
controlled experiment. They placed a couple of cell phones around a hive, with a couple of fake ones around another hive; a third hive had no cell
phones at all.
The real phones were GSM 900MHz and "the exposure given was 15 minutes twice a day during peak bee activity."
To their controlled surprise, three months of observation led them to conclude that the hive with the real cell phones experienced a significant
reduction in its population. The queen bee laid fewer than half the number of eggs that the one in the fake cell phone hive did, and neither honey nor
pollen was anywhere to be found.
In their report, the researchers, Ved Parkash Sharma and Neelima Kumar, explained that they decided to perform the experiment because there was
increasing evidence that electromagnetic fields are responsible for the decline in bee populations. They also noted that similar results have been
obtained by those who studied bee populations "under the influence of high-tension lines."
They suggest that all of our chattering radiation may well be messing with the bees' ability to navigate their way back home. "

SHouldnt this also effect other flying insects,Native Bees, Moths, butterflies, wasps, ect?
There's a difference in Flying insects, some soft bodied, and others exoskeleton. Two different insecticides used depending on which insect. Bees
like ants and beetles are exoskeleton. A toxin that causes mortality in both would be truly toxic indeed.
Your right, but insecticides doesnt notice that difference. such as imidacloprid,Fipronil,Bifenthrin\Pyrethrin ect.
I would say going forward raising honey bees and the like pollinators would be good business because them biting so see um and mosquitoes and the tons
of flies that gather while you enjoying a meal outdoors wont be tolerated.
Firstly, those relying on wasps to do the pollination after the extinction of bees, be advised that yes, they do pollinate, but not remotely as well
as bees, as their bodies are not covered in fuzzy hairs like bees, so the pollen does not stick well to them.
If you are in any doubt as to the importance of the honey bee in modern agriculture, consider the fact that farmers go to great lengths and cost to
transport thousands of hives around the country to pollinate crops. If the bees died out completely, there would be a huge drop in crop yields. This
is not a minor problem.
In Europe, and particularly the UK, there is a major problem with the mass die offs of bees. So far, with the mysterious colony collapse problem,
mixed with terrible summers and generally messed up weather patterns in the past 10 years, the Varroa destructor and Varroa jacobsoni mites, the
Acarine mite, the Nosema apis virus and various other bacterial and fungal infections, it seems the honey bee is being attacked from every angle.
There is a fungal infection that causes the bee to lose its sense of direction, and therefore its ability to return to the hive causing the slow death
of the colony. There is also the wax moth (although a healthy colony can usually fight this off) and attacks from wasp colonies, with the Asian giant
hornet making its slow but inexorable invasion from Southern Europe. These are particularly threatening to European bee colonies, and have been
reported as far North as Paris last summer.
The predator insect "picks off" honey bees as they leave the hive until their colony is so exhausted the hornets can move in and destroy it
Groups from five to 50 of the Asian hornets hover in front of a hive, picking off single honeybees by decapitating them and stripping off their wings
and legs before making off with the "meat ball" to their nest to feed their young.
As the attacks continue, the honeybee colony stops flying and has to consume its own stores, eventually weakening it to such a point that an invasion
force of many hornets enters the hive to rob it. In Asian colonies, the bees recognize the attacks and swarm onto the hornets, sacrificing themselves
but eventually asphyxiating the hornet. European bees do not know this behavior.
So spare a thought for the poor honey bee- does a great job we should all be grateful for, and has a very difficult life!
I saw a documentary, that was aimed at trying to figure out why honey bees kept dying, and it basically came to the conclusion that companies such as
monsanto alter plants, and in turn, throws off bees because the nectar of the plants aren't natural. They become confused and stray away from their
hives, and end up dying.
Bees are a big deal and are essential to all farming and of course are key component to our Organic Vegetable Farm and Orchards where we grown
Avocados, Blood Oranges, Grapefruit, Walnuts and Pecans. I don't do the farming since I was in High School but later, entered into a JV with a group
that wanted to live on the property and farm the property my great grandparents established over 100 years ago but, I know farming because I grew up
working the various farms and ranches my family had/has.
These days my roles are more the Land Owner, Business Partner and Dragon Slayer; the later being to rush in when the County, State or some utility
wants to infringe on our property..any threat in fact. The 3 biggest fights I have had are/were with the County wanting to put meters on our wells,
the Utility Company wanting to run High-power electrical transmission towers across my property and the Wireless Company wanting to put a Microwave
Tower on my mountain. The term "My" is used in the Constitutional American Sense, not the Obama-Marxist-Globalist Sense!
The answer to all of these is and must be the same 1) Quick and vicious legal response to even the hint of the subject 2) Group complaint to the
County Supervisors in open session with the TV News and Newspaper in tow with repeated follow-up stories in the local paper (maintaining advertising
and warm relations with the Media is essential because "They" can only murder you in silence) and 3) Posted trespassing signs; if you don't make a
citizen's arrest of trespassers (regardless of who they are) and pursue legal action in court, don't expect the county or state to respect your No
Trespassing Signs or Property Owner Rights. It is also essential to be wired for information about any discussions that are Agenda 21 related and go
after the politicians that advocate anything that smells of Agenda 21. This is just a brief touching upon what farmers are faced with but in our case
we lonely sell locally and are constantly winning new allies who are eyes, ears and voices for us and the farms that encircle our mountain and
All these enemies of farmers being addressed and more to the subject of "Bees", High Power Electricity and Microwave Towers are certainly "Bee
Killers" but I am no going to tell you the two things that kill bees which have been the hardest for us to fight 1) GMO Crops; the list is quite long
but in our case it was/is Soybeans, Corn and Cotton but which I foresaw and notified and educated all our neighbors about in a nice way on our
Attorney's Stationary, where we also suggested if they ever had a problem to contact us because we are allies of mutual interest. It was too late in
one cases where the lands to the south of us are owned by a far-removed corporation who we learned too late was having "Aerial Spraying" of their
orchards done. Here again nothing short of a vicious, attorney in tow response will do and in this case we went after both the Owners and the Aerial
Spraying Company, the later turning out to not want the Bad Publicity we promised they would get plenty of. Their Spraying did in fact kill many of
our bees so, when we went to see them, I had our attorney on one arm and a bucket of dead bees on the other. I had done my homework on what the
Helicopters were spraying and tested both the pyrethroids and endosulfans and both kill bees contrary to the BS being told. I brought 2 large plastic
jars with a few bees in each to our meeting and showed them. Thus far we have agreed that they will notify us two days before they are going to spray
so we can tent-confine our bees for the night before and after they spray during season; we have a bee keeper and he goes north and south with the
So, there is my two cents worth. Most of you live in Cities and are eating foods grown in South America, China and elsewhere that don't give a shi-
if you are being poisoned and you probably don't care about some small farmers...Family Farmers. Well, you will care at some point when they crash the
dollar and all the foods they import dry up.
NOTE: I realize that many members are City Dwellers and really don't have the first idea about farming or what farmers go through, to say nothing of
where your food actually comes from (you may think you do but you do not). If you did, you would know that 1)The government does not admit anything
about Chem-trails and 2) Notices of Spraying, when posted, are done in such a manner that you have to watch like a hawk for them in the local paper or
whatever means they can adhere to the law but limit publicity. Trust me, the Government is on the side of Big Agro, Big Chemical, companies like
Monsanto and Big Money and they are all Agenda 21 Minions.

The "Bee Colony Collapse" was quietly but demonstrably linked to Pesticides a couple years ago -- after of course, a long run-around and
obfuscation. Things like the bio-engineered mushroom-based pesticides being grown inside some vegetables and grains have migrated out to wildflowers
and other things bees interact with.
Since Bee's don't have lobbyists, they are screwed.
Unlikely to be a honey bee- they arent capable of hovering for any length of time- only really when maneuvering when landing. Its a weight vs surface
area of wings= large effort / use of energy thing. I would be surprised if they could keep it up for 30 seconds with exhausting themselves.

I would bet on it, the is from the pesticides used somewhere nearby.
I am betting that Monsanto knows why!
Monsanto Strikes Again!
I'm betting that Monsanto will innocently introduce a "Round-Up Ready Bee", one that is resistant to the "mysterious malady nobody can identify"
and of course their own genetically engineered pesticides.
The bees of course, won't be able to Reproduce, and anyone found with "Round-Up Ready Bee" genes in their hives are subject to lawsuits. I'm sure
some legal briefs are on there way to Mother Nature for allowing cross-species genetic drift to occur.
i did read some where that it was the GM crops rather than pesticides....Changing the DNA structure of the plant enabling the plant to become
resistant to disease ..something went wrong resulting in zombie bees who had come in contact with the modified crops/plants.....An experiment gone
Or a immortal super plant that no longer needs bees to pollinate for it to survive there for seeing the bee as a threat.....
