No ORGANIC Bee losses - Bees Immune Systems Damaged

"In the Australian story researchers have dissected bees that have died and they have found that their immune systems have "totally gone to pieces". "It is like they just lost their immune system and anything will kill them"."

Thanks to David Yeo and Martin Weatherall for sending these most interesting links. Like humans and other factory farmed animals which are continually being subjected to poor nutrition (imagine the quality of honey from the glucose/corn syrup feed) including GE rubbish, abuse, and EMF* and chemical toxicities, the bees are reaching their tolerance. The sad part is that all these insults are known factors, yet as usual nothing will happen until major losses occur. And we call ourselves an intelligent species???

No ORGANIC Bee losses
2007 05 06

Received from Lancifer |
I am quite involved with many alternative agriculture
groups, and I received this email from a trusted might want to check it out for your news

"Sharon Labchuk is a longtime environmental activist and part-time organic beekeeper from Prince Edward Island. She has twice run for a seat in Ottawa's House of Commons, making strong showings around 5% for Canada's fledgling Green Party. She is also leader of the provincial wing of her party. In a widely circulated email, she wrote:

I'm on an organic beekeeping list of about 1,000 people, mostly Americans, and no one in the organic beekeeping world, including commercial beekeepers, is reporting colony collapse on this list. The problem with the big commercial guys is that they put pesticides in their hives to fumigate for varroa mites, and they feed antibiotics to the bees. They also haul the hives by truck all over the place to make more money with pollination services, which stresses the colonies.

Her email recommends a visit to the Bush Bees Web site at Here, Michael Bush felt compelled to put a message to the beekeeping world right on the top page:

Most of us beekeepers are fighting with the Varroa mites. I'm happy to say my biggest problems are things like trying to get nucs through the winter and coming up with hives that won't hurt my back from lifting or better ways to feed the bees.

This change from fighting the mites is mostly because I've gone to natural sized cells. In case you weren't aware, and I wasn't for a long time, the foundation in common usage results in much larger bees than what you would find in a natural hive. I've measured sections of natural worker brood comb that are 4.6mm in diameter. What most people use for worker brood is foundation that is 5.4mm in diameter. If you translate that into three dimensions instead of one, it produces a bee that is about half as large again as is natural. By letting the bees build natural sized cells, I have virtually eliminated my Varroa and Tracheal mite problems. One cause of this is shorter capping times by one day, and shorter post-capping times by one day. This means less Varroa get into the cells, and less Varroa reproduce in the cells.

Who should be surprised that the major media reports forget to tell us that the dying bees are actually hyper-bred varieties that we coax into a larger than normal body size? It sounds just like the beef industry. And, have we here a solution to the vanishing bee problem? Is it one that the CCD Working Group, or indeed, the scientific world at large, will support? Will media coverage affect government action in dealing with this issue?

These are important questions to ask. It is not an uncommonly held opinion that, although this new pattern of bee colony collapse seems to have struck from out of the blue (which suggests a triggering agent), it is likely that some biological limit in the bees has been crossed. There is no shortage of evidence that we have been fast approaching this limit for some time.

We've been pushing them too hard, Dr. Peter Kevan, an associate professor of environmental biology at the University of Guelph in Ontario, told the CBC. And we're starving them out by feeding them artificially and moving them great distances. Given the stress commercial bees are under, Kevan suggests CCD might be caused by parasitic mites, or long cold winters, or long wet springs, or pesticides, or genetically modified crops. Maybe it's all of the above...

*Hi All
Here are another three interesting stories about honey bees dying or vanishing. 
In the Australian story researchers have dissected bees that have died and they have found that their immune systems have "totally gone to pieces".  "It is like they just lost their immune system and anything will kill them".
For anyone who has looked at the evidence of human cancer cases (and pets) around cell phone antenna and strong sources of electromagnetic radiation, this will not be a surprise.  There is evidence of DNA damage, cell damage and changes in blood composition etc. from EMR.  I have strong reasons to believe that it was exposure to high levels of EMR that compromised my own immune system, made me ill and caused me to develop prostate cancer.  Damage to the human and  animal immune systems, by EMR, has been shown by much research.  I have little doubt that the immune systems of bees can be damaged by EMR.
It is interesting that honey bees in Australia are not being harmed as they are in California.  I would place a bet that the environment in California has far higher levels of electro magnetic radiation than found in most of Australia.
The second article is about - "Taiwan, the latest country stung by vanishing honey bees".  This is interesting because several months ago there was a news story from Taiwan which stated a large number of citizens were suffering from the effects of electro magnetic radiation and many antenna masts were being removed.  There has been widespread debate in Taiwan about EMR, and the removal of base stations.
The third story is about GM modified foods and their possible influence on bees.

Most interesting story about the toxins in sugars fed to bees. Can you find out if the honey made from this sugar contains the toxins which might be harmful to humans? My survival group just bought a lot of raw honey from US sources who have lost their bees. Would the honey be safe and how could I test?

It's worse than that. Basically by using Roudup Ready crops and similar GM foods, they dump massive amounts of pesticide into the soil year after year that builds up. It is like they are salting the earth. It is even worse than nuclear fallout in a way, because nothing but roundup ready crops will probably grow on that soil for 50 years. That is if they ever stop growing roundup ready crops on it. And if it destroys the bees immune system maybe this explains the massive increase of illness in people?
