Bee Die In

Every time we meet new people and they learn we are beekeepers, other than do we sell honey, the next question is, "Why are bees dieing?" or "Have they figured out what is causing Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD)?"  At this time, no one claims to have all of the answers but evidence is mounting that we humans are killing bees through our use of systemic insecticides and in the process may be killing ourselves.  Some folks in Berkley stated their opinion a bit stronger when they staged a bee die in at a Bayer Chemical plant.

 Dressed like honeybees, one by one they dropped dead at the main gate to this Bayer plant.  You can read more about it in the story "Berkeley's Bayer Stung by Critics" in The Berkley Daily Planet.
