Re: Europe bans neonics in all 27 countries - landmark day for bees
Driving North w/ a load of bees on my F-450 and listening to the radio I heard about this ban in Europe and it was stated that U.S. Beekeepers are having a really hard time providing pollination to those who need it. Is that accurate? Have any growers who need bees for pollination not gotten them? Very many? Crisis level shortage of pollinating colonies?
I am so far having the best Spring in years. I have gotten pretty close to my goal of filling up all my pallets and nuc boxes w/ bees. Put more bees in NC Blueberrys this year and will be putting more bees than ever in NY Apple orchards this year too. But I am only one beekeeper.
