Where have all the bees gone?


Last year I wrote about colony collapse disorder which is threatening our bee population. I pointed out that survival for organic bees looked more hopeful. Apparently the situation is worse this year (see link below) and yet this popular gardening magazine is running a campaign against the European Parliament initiative to restrict pesticides use.

Don’t they realise that if they kill all the “pests”, and the bees and other insects along with them, there will be nothing left to pollinate the flowers in their gardens, the apple orchards, and many of our crops. I’m sure there are other factors at play here, but why not address the one that we can immediately do something about.

Somewhere there is a factory developing inorganic bees to pollinate all those plants.
