| "Pesticide makes bees forget the scent for food, new study finds"

| it is over blown rhetoric. Yeah there is and potential , but over blown to the circle of influence dooms dayers. How do I know ? Melissa my information source . She is a bee keeper and has been for a long long time . I trust her and her new husband . Both bee Keepers . So yeah nasty mites , Nasty tree beetles and worms but part of the evolutionary processes at work in the world . Like the pine bark beetle . I doubt very much this is the first time something like this has happened on the earth . Suspect is they were a lot bigger in the past . Big Pine bark lizard beavers more than likely . Who knows Bugs as big as rats or small dogs . Ones that would carry a baby human off for breakfast. There have been plenty of devastating flash fire events do to global warming i am sure even if more localized . The Nine mile Valley for instant has an ancient fire layer recorded in the soils . Not all that old either. I can't guess the age with any accuracy, But long Long Long after Dinosaur yet long before us humans were running around the area . More than likely most defiantly before modern humans . We dug it up every where in the area . Miles a part from each other . A geologist just happen to look at it while we had an open hole and he talked the whole time he was looking at it so even with my limited understanding my belief is strong that some of the information is spot on .
O.K. geologist . The layer was about eight ft deep on average . There was a major flood event 12,000 years ago in the area so maybe my analysis is way off . There are signs of rust in the upper layers of the burn barrier but before that there is a layer of clay. Then there is clay and rock beneath the burn layer . The clay layer is about 1 to 2 ft. Below that first layer of clay . That is the best I can do for a soil profile . Oh there was a gavel layer in there some where close to the burn . Maybe just below the burn . Not always in every area though . More spotty but high percentage you could find pockets in any given area . O.K. my best soil profile from memory

Can they vaccinate bees? Obviously injections would be out of the question but orally.

| Some very recent findings now suggest it may be almost exclusively the varroa mite - one of the evil three in the devil's brew for CCD - but that the mite itself has a virus that is doing the final step.

| NZ bees now totally dependent on humans for survival
Now that sounds scary!

| Fυcking idiot troll.
There are people who can read and reason and research the *** you post.
Most of those people aren't here to be amused by your drooling. To their credit.

| Theres a pesticide called Bacillus thuringiensis (BT) that became popular in the early 80s because it was considered to be safe for humans and was used in many cases because of pressure from environmental groups.
It has been found to be extremely toxic to insects such as bees.
BT was used in the forestry industry to control Gipsy moth out breaks.
The other pesticide more commonly used was Seven but was considered dangerous for humans.
I remember when they did aerial spraying using (Seven) people were told to stay indoors.
Thats why (BT) became popular evan though it is more expensive.
I think there evan producing genetically altered plants that contain (BT)
There's a lot of info on the web about (BT)

Good stuff - so many theories - could bees become extinct?
