Scientists discover another cause for bee deaths

A European honey beeThe massive honeybee die-off should have a lot of folks concerned. Chemicals manufactured by Bayer Corporation have contributed to CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder). The bees have been poisoned with a known insect neurotoxin called Clothianidin, a pesticide manufactured by Bayer, which has been clearly linked to massive bee die offs in Germany and France. Now there’s a new threat to the bees besides the deadly chemical Clothianidin.

From the Examiner:

Scientists have recently discovered another cause for the massive bee deaths that have been taking place across the world. It’s not good either, turns out that something once thought harmless to bees is not the case. The latest cause being contributed to the bee deaths is fungicides.

It was over two years ago when I first reported about the massive honeybee die-off, and things have not gotten any better it appears.

Honey bees are one of the most important pollinators in nature and they are disappearing at an alarming rate. Other bees that are just as important to the pollination process include Bumble Bees and Mason Bees.
