Disappearance Of Honeybees Worry Me

It worries me more than Global Warming. The Bees are disappearing at a fast rate, moreso than the polar caps melting.

I'd be more worried about nothing getting pollinated then rising sea levels.

It's probably a combination of destruction of ecosystems and global warming. It definitely isn't a good thing for us.

The honey bees have been found. The were bought with a subsidy by the Chinese government and are being reverse engineered. Wasps and hornets have lodged disputes.

The Chinese are doing that too? I thought the Russians were the only ones to do that.

Global Warming is so overblown. I like it how people like Al Gore, Sheryl Crow, and Larry David's wife, Leonardo Dicrapio, and the like tell us how we should trim down our energy consumption when they are the ones flying in Private jets, driving low MPG vehicles like Hummers, Land Rovers, and fast cars, and live in giant houses.
Screw them.

And if things get warmer, so be it. It'd be awesome if Eureka had the climate of Honolulu or even San Diego.

They actually are in Europe.
Chinese/Asian Hornets are somehow ending up in Europe and killing all the honey bees.

Our two cherry-trees had plenty of flowers this spring but not enough fruit - a clear indication the bees are becomming rarer.
In large areas in Europe some special fertilizers and agricultural sprays are being indentified as the main reasons.
But the manufacturers (Bayer ) claim-of course- it's not their fault but the fault of some other phenomena which thay can't identify.
It's all B.S. -their agents in question ( Gaucho et Regent-TS® ) have been tested by many independent laboratories and clearly are a powerful toxin for bees.

I also tend to believe that the loss of honeybees - as much as 70% in some parts of North America - is mainly due to the use of certain complex agricultural chemicals. Some blame may be from the use of artifically engineered seeds. Some small but inconclusive studies suggest that the increasing use of cell/mobil telephones may be screwing up the internal radar of honeybees so they get lost and die. There are a number of studies and investigations underway, but their results may also be inconclusive or may lead to ways to deal with the issue that may not be economically viable or too late There is no real alternative to honeybees to pollinate many food plants and their loss will mean much higher prices.

Whatever happened to the killer bee scare of a decade or so ago? I remember them showing the projected timeframe that they would show up where I live. That would have been a few years ago, but haven't heard anything about it in quite sometime.

It is a good thing for those of us who are allergic to bees. I happen to hate this time of year although I love the weather. This time of year, it's really nice out, but I have to be very careful when I go outside because if I get stung, I will suffer an allergic reaction, and could die. I have to make sure that I have an Epi Pen with me whenever I'm outside now. And when I work airshows with Civil Air Patrol, I have to keep my uniform sleeves rolled down for my own safety.

So for me, bees disappearing is a GOOD thing.

No worries

Check this out:

We have the whole bee genome coded. It is just a matter of start cloning. If we would get a bit more freedom with stem cell research we would be further ahead in saving species by genetically manipulating them. Easy and effective.  stirthepot

If things like this and global warming worry you, then you must be not have anything serious to worry about in your life.

Congratulations!  Smile

Where was the killer hurricane season of 2006? I thought the chicken little crowd was talking about how Katrina was just the beginning.
Maybe its just cyclical, ever think about that?
