I have a suggestion that may greatly help the beekeepers with their issue of CCD from fungicide poisoning.
- Mix cinnamon in the bee's feed stock.
- Cinnamon is highly anti-septic, and specifically useful in getting rid of Candida Yeast Infections. I would suspect it would keep the bees fungus free.
- I am not a beekeeper but I did a pile of research and looked into it and shied away because of the mite issue - which also ironically was fixed simply by mixing pine oil in the bees honey.
Possibly it would be practical to make a 'health serum' for the bees, with pine oil, cinnamon maybe even some vics vapor rub to keep the bees healthy. We do it for cattle all the time, it's time to look at how to help the bees.
