    that may be true but not all the chemicals are neonic pesticides. you also have fungacides herbacides and traditional insecticides. I lost a bunch of bees this year to arial spraying of cotton and I know some of it got in the hives cause the convulsing bees were being dragged out of the hive.When ya mix all of them together do they still photodegrade ????

    Before wwII farming was done organicaly and it took a bunch of years for farmers to switch to chemical farming. And now it"s going to take the world farmers a bunch of years to switch back. Europe is a head of us on this.http://www.rodaleinstitute.org/fst30years/yields

    Well if ya grow an acre of rice for one person ya have an acres worth of rice growing pollution. If ya do it for 2 people you double the pollution.

    It's a cultural thing. In Va you couldn't produce enough comb honey but here in Indiana I have to explain to people what it is, what you do with, how to eat it....you mean you really put wax in your mouth!

    But this is a problem - it seems to me that they just feed TWO people on the same acre of rice! It was my point. May be I am wrong, but I do not think that there is a linear dependency between number of people growing and amount of food produced... we have obesity problem in US and kids in Africa are starving... I do not think that African countries added "additional" acre of crop to each newborn baby... Just my thoughts. Sergey

    Other than a few local Vermont products stores that want to carry my comb honey, nearly all goes to beekeepers to supply their customers. Most winds up in the Boston and New York City markets.
