    Re: Newly published Harvard study on neonics

    WLC, I have been thinking about the delayed mortality for a long time already. This is one theory that could exlain the mechanism of how neonics consumed in summer could cause CCD in winter:

    Re: The Case Against Imidicloprid

    Maize pollen is taken in much more frequently than beekeepers think:

  7. Re: Eye witness to colony collapse: Bee-farmer loses 2,000 hives in one month

    Neonics are neurotoxins, and the nervous system of bees and termites work on the same principles.

    Re: The Case Against Imidicloprid

    Hi grondeau

    I would be interested in your opinion on this theory:




    It would explain why no or very little residue of neonics can be found in CCD hives.

    I have done my homework, read the studies and looked at lots of hives, some of them showing all symptoms of CCD.

    Re: Not going well need advise.

    I stick with my opinion that this loss was due to neonics.

    So if the beekeeper cannot eliminate the source of the pesticide, should he get bees again, just to lose them the same way as this...
