Re: Bees and soybeans
Seems like soybean is all they plant around here anymore. I am not going to say that the soybean itself is bad for the bee. GMO or not.
But I have had tons of problems with bees this spring and summer, there are several hundred acres of soy beans nearby. They may or may not be spraying something on the fields that do not agree with the bees. I know I do have a huge tomato farm about 3/4 mile away, I really believe that I saw 4 hive die within 2 weeks of their dusting with SEVIN.
I know bees do not pollinate tomatoes, but there was definitely a wind drift that day, and who knows where the SEVIN ended up.
