Re: Purdue university study confirms neonicotinoids on maize killing honeybees
Then you'd better not let your bees forage at all. And if they do, you'd better not eat any of their honey, especially comb honey. Because, as stated somewhere above and as foiund by Dr. Mary Anne Frazier, honeybees are bringing home 135 or more pesticides, fungicides and other things, matabolites I think they are called, you don't want to eat and it ends up mostly in the wax, but also in the honey. Honeybees and beehives end up being good filters and samplers of what is in the environment.
