What we do know is this. the number of bee colonies is in decline worldwide. It is postulated that the cause of this is due to 3 factors:
1. neonicotinoids pesticides are killing bees by screwing with their bees navigation systems.
2. Land usage is reducing the number of nectar producing plants out there so the bees are starving
3. agricultural corridors are create a "bee food Desert" interrupting migration patterns of bees and again starving them.
that's it really.
I have had one guy trying to link fracking to bee decline......
yep FRACKING!!! WTF!(what the frack!!)
This fracking issue has nothing to do with bees in reality, just a well intention green thinker whom clearly doesnt understand the issues of CCD.
Others have proposed GMO giant Monsanto being responsible.. Monsanto makes herbicides yes but neonicotinoids are made by BASF and not Monsanto. so again another very tenuous link.. this one reaking of anticorp slogans.
the green movement needs to get scientifically literate quickly and stop trying to lump specific issues to a single cause.
