Death of The Honey Bee

Honey bee populations are disappearing, endangering the all-natural foods they help pollinate-- an amazing one-third of all the food we eat. It is called Bee Colony Collapse Disorder and it could endanger the world food supply.

Please visit Help The Honey Bees! website. Or, you may visit Burt's Bees website to learn more about Bee Colony Collapse Disorder.

What can you do?

Plant seeds to attract honey bees to your yard: Calendula, Shasta Daisy, Lance-Leaved Coreopsis, Plains Coreopsis, Purple Coneflower and Sweet William Catchfly.

For those in the know the bee problem is not a mystery. The bees immune system have been compromised by the herbacides and insecticides in chemical lawn treatments. Golf courses business parks and lawns. Wherever these products are used to make the lawns weed free the bees are dying of parasites and disease they can no longer resist.

Follow the correlation. The chemicals that kill broad leaf plants in lawns, flowering weeds like dandilion, increased use to bee decline.

Monsanto is heavily vested in the defense industry. This has given them a virtual immunity to profit from marketing products that destroy the environment. Roundup is one of many such products. Miamisburg Ohio. The Mound. A superfund cleanup site that Monsanto ran for DoD.

It is biodiversity these products attack. They are building up in the environment just like PCB's. Follow Monsanto's track record. I know this because my late father worked at The Mound.
