    You've got it wrong. It's politics.

    You're on the wrong side of the fence.

    But the article doesn't stop at "it wasn't caused by neonics", the article says nothing unusual happened at all, which is false.

    Well, I read it and it said there was "confusion" about the losses which is absolutely true. Some report huge losses in the almonds this spring but many beekeepers report no major problems. It is also true that the numbers of bee hives in the US have remained pretty static. Read it several times and I couldn't find the quote "nothing unusual happened at all". Remember this article was mainly about last winter's loss nationwide. and the status of bees in the US. I don't disagree that there was CCD, but many beekeepers had losses from other causes and blamed it on CCD just like some blame neonics now. I believe the main cause of losses is PPBK. I know that's my problem with my losses last winter.
