I have tried, during the last few years, to grow more 'bee-friendly' flowering plants, and saw some bees during this last disastrous summer, despite the rain.
Well done you Sylvia - our bees seem to be thriving despite the poor summer. But almost all the honey has had to be left for them to eat for this coming winter. They deserve it though. Fascinating creatures and so clever.
Enough with the poisons already!
nobees no life
Poisons that kill insects will kill us. Anyone who has learned about Integrated Pest Management knows this or should. We're in a new century, we should know better.
we need the honey BEE'S SAVE THEM!!!
Please Please everyone read this.
Many of us fought to have a ban in the Uk and Europe. We supposedly won. But the ban is a total sham.
The ‘ban’ doesn’t come into force until December. By then most if not all farmers will have purchased their chemical coated seeds for next year.
They are only banning 3 of the neonicotinoids. There are others, which will not be banned.
They are only being banned from using on pollinating plants, so will still be used on other crops, meaning that there...
They are only being banned from using on pollinating plants, so will still be used on other crops, meaning that there will continue to be residues on the land. And it is not known how long residues last for.
There is no ban on all the other insecticides, which may also be having a detrimental effect on all bees and other pollinating insects.
New studies show that not only are bees are being affected, but hoverflies and lacewings too. So the notion by many folk that there are other insects, which can go on pollinating, is false.
We have had the most amazing apple blossom this year, yet very few bees working it – one or two here and there. The same with comfrey, which would normally be humming with bumble bees. We in the Uk have had a very long winter, and still a cool spring. Indeed, the coldest spring in 50 years. This has undoubtedly has had a serious effect on bee populations of all kinds. Undoubtedly too, they have been weakened by chemicals.
Think about it seriously. Insecticides do that – kill insects! So...
Think about it seriously. Insecticides do that – kill insects! So what can we expect – dead bees, dead hoverflies, dead lacewings….. all for the sake of money and power.
The same people are pushing to ban all seeds that are not controlled by Monsanto and the other chemical industries, so that we have to use their genetically modified seeds, which will only grow by using their chemicals.
The same people who are trying to ban the use of homeopathy, herbs and other forms of natural healing, so that we are all hooked on to their drugs.
Part three: Please, everyone wake up to what is happening. These multinational companies are after world domination and politicians are falling over backwards to oblige.
So true.. we are not talking politics, but life as we know it.
befor its too late if it already isn't!!
pitty its only us saying stop,our com sold us out years ago,id love to say enjoy the ride ,but i know we will not.
Yes It is a case of tunnel vision with some of the bureaucrats. There is no thought about the wider implications.
thank you all for your responses, i have only found them as only John's was fed back to me. I am a member of the Wedmore Green Group here in England, and we lean on our 'poly-tishons' (oh, a species of parrot!!!!!!!!). perhaps you have local pressure groups you can work with, or join to help the cause. Or even start one yourselves. Just a thought. You can look up our website and get ideas. i wish you all well. melvyn ps i will be happy to hear from you.
Bees ar emore essential than humans to this planet EARTH.
thanks for th e invite to join, Paul, I signed this one a while back. Sounding Bowls are used with bees in some places, bees feel vibrations through their feet as they don't have ears. Sounding Bowls have remarkable healing effects also with human beings in a huge variety of situations and are used in top hosptials in the UK.
sauvez les abeilles! pour notre bien!
c'est fait pour moi , faut vraiment prendre concience que sans ABEILLES c'est la fin de la pollennisation !!!et donc plus rien ne pousse a part les OGM !!!!!

WHY IS OUR GOVERNMENT: EPA, AMA, FDA, ETC..........ALLOWING THIS? WE ARE ALL AWARE THAT ONE OF MONTSANTO'S BOARD MEMBER WAS ON ONE OF THESE HEADS OF GOVERNMENT AND HE MAY WELL STILL BE ON OUR GOVERNMENT AGENCY. PLEASE SPEAK UP AND LET OUR GOVERNMENT WITH DEEP POCKETS THAT WE ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANY MORE. WE DEFINITELY NEED A FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THAT HAS SCIENTSTS, PROFESSORS, AND EXTREMELY INTELLIGENT MEN AND WOMEN THAT DO NOT HAVE DEEP POCKETS. SCIENTIST LIKE DR. PAULUS LINING, ONE OF MOST WONDERFUL SCIENTIST THAT EVER LIVED AND HE WAS TRYING TO KEEP US ALIVE! THE VERY FAR RIGHT THAT DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH EDUCATED HUMANS INVOLVED IN THEIR ORGANIZATION, ARE ONLY ACTIVE IN POLITICS FOR EGO, MONEY, AND ETC...... THEY ARE TRYING TO DESTROY ANY GOOD GOVERNMENT WE HAVE, AND THEY ARE TRYING TO PRIVATIZE ALL OUR GOVERNMENT RUN, PUBLIC FACILILTIES. WE DO NOT NEED BLACK WATER IN OUR LIFES OR SHALL WE SAY THEIR NEW NAME: XE!
THEY ARE A PRIVATE POLICE FORCE THAT ARE BEYOND RUTHLESS. AND SOME OF OUR HIGH GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS ALLOWED THEM TO EXIST. PLEASE SAVE THE UNITED STATES AND INSIST ON THE 1% TO LISTEN AND PERFORM WHAT IS BEST FOR THE REST OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE WORLD. WE CAN ALL WORK TOGETHER TO HAVE A BETTER WORLD AND THE 1% WILL LIVE BETTER LIVES ALSO, FOR WE ALL KNOW PHYSICS AND WHAT WE RADIATE IN THE UNIVERSE COMES BACK. THE INSANITY AND VIOLENCE HAS TO STOP IN THIS TIME IN HISTORY 2012! IF YOU STUDY THE ANT SOCIETIES, THEIR NEUROSIS, AND THEIR PHYSICAL VIOLENCE, YOU CAN SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING IN HUMAN SOCIETY, AND THAT IS INSANE. WE HAVE A HIGHER BRAIN AND ALL MANKIND NEEDS TO USE THAT ALONG WITH THEIR HEARTS FOR A SANE WORLD. ONLY THE TRUTH AND THE HIGHEST GOOD IS HONORABLE. ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MOVIES, WAS: THE LAST SAMURAI. WE NEED TO SEEK ROLE MODELS LIKE BRILLIANT SCIENTISTS THAT ARE ALWAYS TRYING TO ELEVATE LIFE! THANK YOU, LOVE, SHARON WE AS INTELLILGENT PHENOMENA WILL SEE A HIGHER CHANGE, HIGHER INTELLIGENCE.
YOU ARE 100% CORRECT IT IS UNEDUCATED UN CAREING HUMAN NEGLECT FOR ANY LIVING ORGINISM.THAT IS CAUSING AND ALLOWING THEESE PROBLEMS TO OCCURE, WITH THIS NEGLECT MAN KIND WILL SURVIVE NO MORE
I am not signing this petition JUST because they benefit humans. I'm also signing it because no living creature should ever suffer, expecially at the greedy hands of humans. I'm signing it becuase bees are a beautiful part of our world and I want to see them enjoying the beautiful flowers that they also help to flourish, I want to see bees because they are beautiful and shouldn't die because of us. They are also dying because of mobile phones and other technology because it interferes with...
I am not signing this petition JUST because they benefit humans. I'm also signing it because no living creature should ever suffer, expecially at the greedy hands of humans. I'm signing it becuase bees are a beautiful part of our world and I want to see them enjoying the beautiful flowers that they also help to flourish, I want to see bees because they are beautiful and shouldn't die because of us. They are also dying because of mobile phones and other technology because it interferes with their homing signal. The amount of bees I have picked up and placed on a flower because they are lost, is countless. Wake up people for crying out loud!
Man is the only animal that pollutes what sustains him.
Never have..how are you?
Those who keep using this stuff are somewhat insane. A greed that overcomes sanity, that destroys our food, our health, our planet. How appropriate that they aim to destroy honey bees; they aim to destroy the sweetness of the planet. They could use some sweetening of their hard cash, short-sighted vision. They have too much power over this exquisite planet of the dying coral and the disappearing species, disappearing languages of the world, human and plant and animal, the hilltops, the oceans, the air, the chorus of the natural world.
So very sad isn't it. Our only hope is mother nature kicks back and sorts out these short sighted, greedy fools and believe me she will:)
