More Than 25,000 Bees Found Dead In Oregon Parking Lot

It’s the U.S. government’s Environmental Protection Agency that approves of the GMO insecticide responsible for killing millions of bees. You can read more about that here.
Not to long ago, the US government was sued for their use of pesticides killing millions of bees, and ignoring scientific evidence that proves it. You can read more about that here.
The link between pesticides and bee deaths cannot be argued. It has been published in a number of peer-reviewed journals that show how widely used pesticides have a very damaging effect on bees. A new paper published in the journal Nature shows how bees are twice as likely to die when exposed to pesticides; two-thirds of the bees are lost when exposed compared to a third when not exposed. The exposed bees are also half as successful in gathering food. The exotoxicology tests only looked at honey bees, and failed to include bumblebees. Bumblebees are just as important in providing the required pollination to create much of the food we consume. You can read more in the journal Nature here.

I've not seen 1 single honey bee this year. There was a time when you had a hard time avoiding stepping on them. Those days are long gone. Last year at this time I had seen maybe 20 honey bees. 20 years ago there would have been thousands. Somethings def wrong, our pollinating friends have vanished. Lucky for us the GM food requires no pollination and as a side bonus it's usually seedless or very few seeds.
