Vanishing Bees – The Vanishing Bees Mystery Finally Solved
The vanishing bee story goes back a long way, farmers have been called crazy, leading analysts have been criticized for being too farfetched and the rest have been scratching their heads in amazement to the fact that thriving bee colonies have literally disappeared overnight. There are no traces of bodies and the victims are never found.
The problem surfaced many years ago and it is getting worse. Even a third of commercial bee hives have been hit recently and farmers simply did not know what to do, who to turn to, or what was causing the problem. It was quite frustrating for them, as their queen bees were left abandoned to starve and die.
Thousands of scientific researchers have been trying to determine what the caused this vanishing mystery, because it is a very big threat to the honey supply. Until a few months ago, there was only inconclusive evidence that left many people and analysts in bewilderment.
Recent specific surveys are now saying that top researchers have finally found what they call the “leading culprit” to what is causing bees to vanish in extremely high numbers. There were rumours that pesticides were the leading factor, however there is a class of pesticides known as NEONICOTINOIDS that have now been proved to be the real cause.
Neonicotinoids are produced by bayer and have the nick name “Neonics” for short and are found in the everyday home gardening products and are also found in the coating of many wheat, corn, soy and cotton seeds.
The problem for bees is that these Neonicotinoids are absorbed into the plants vascular system and on many occasions contaminates the netar the bees are feed from. Once the bees feeds on the different pollens and nectars they are not able to sense the nerve poison whilst feeding and when the poison is absorbed into the bees body, it can disorientate them and also damage the homing ability of the bee itself. Scientists believe that these are the leading factors to the bees not being able to make it back to the hive.
Scientists who were able to re-create this colony collapse disorder were able to trace many beehives that have bees who exhibit traces of the poisoning by their violent random movements, convulsions, which are acute signs the bees have been minutely affected.
There are also leading studies that suggest genetically modified organism crops are to blame, as they also contain toxic insectices within their genetic makeup, and can be responsible for poisoning the bees and weakening their immune system at the same time.
Back in 1923 Rudolph Steiner, who founded biodynamic agriculture made an eery prediction! He warned that breeding bees artificially will also change the bee’s genetic makeup and it would make the bee itself more susceptible to diseases and inconsistences with the environment around them. His prophecy was that within 100 years bees would face extinction or lead to massive colony collapses and right now it seems he was spot on.
There are many leading experts telling us this problem is just a canary in the coal mine. However the vanishing is not just a problem for the bees and bee farmers. What this is telling us is that there is a massive deterioration in our surrounding environment in which we live today. It is a global problem too and not just housed in one or two areas. So a massive worldwide death of bee colonies would have a very dramatic effect on other food supplies and prices also.
Believe it or not, this is a big disaster that does not need to happen; Germany and France have already banned certain pesticides that have been found to cause many problems for animals and bees in particular.
Many bee keepers are saying we still have enough time to save the bees, but time is running out. But we must realise we cannot make nature conform to our obsessive industrial standards, and companies need work with the bees and not against them.
