Summary

 

 

Bee-Keepers are FALSELY BLAMING BEE DEATHS on Neonicotinoid Insecticides.  Sadly, Bee-Keepers are THE LEAST CREDIBLE AND THE LEAST QUALIFIED TO PROVIDE ANY ADVICE concerning Neonicotinoid Insecticides.  There are A GROWING NUMBER OF REPORTS that Bee-Keepers ALL OVER NORTH AMERICA are VIOLATING FEDERAL LAW by using ILLEGAL, UNREGISTERED, DEADLY, and CANCER-CAUSING pest control products.  Recently, in Alberta, Bee-Keepers WERE FINED FOR USING THESE UNREGISTERED PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS TO COMBAT MITE INFESTATIONS, resulting HEFTY FINES from Health Canada.  Bee-Keepers VIOLATE FEDERAL LAW by using products like AMITRAZ, which is KNOWN TO CAUSE CANCER, and is KNOWN TO KILL PEOPLE.  In 2006, the United States Environmental Protection Agency ( USEPA ) classified AMITRAZ as a group C, A POSSIBLE HUMAN CARCINOGEN.  Furthermore, exposure of men to greater amounts of AMITRAZ can LEAD TO DEATH DUE TO RESPIRATORY FAILURE, mainly after oral uptake or inhalation.  In Turkey during 1989, 41 cases of DEADLY AMITRAZ INTOXICATIONS were detected.  Other frequently occurring symptoms AFTER MASSIVE AMITRAZ INTOXICATION are BRADYCARDIA, DEPRESSION, HYPERGLYCEMIA, HYPOTHERMIA, LOSS OF CONSCIOUSNESS, MIOSIS, RESPIRATORY DEPRESSION, and VOMITING.  In other words, Bee-Keepers are ILLEGALLY USING products that are known to CAUSE CANCER, and are known to KILL PEOPLE.  It has been concluded that Bee-Keepers are producing potentially DANGEROUS HONEY.  And yet, these same Bee-Keepers complain about Neonicotinoid Insecticides, which, in fact, DO NOT CAUSE CANCER, are SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE, and CAUSE NO HARM.  If Bee-Keepers are LYING AND CHEATING BY USING ILLEGAL PRODUCTS, then, are they also LYING AND CHEATING with their public statements about bee deaths and Neonicotinoid Insecticides ?!?!

Bee-Keepers Use Illegal, Unregistered, Deadly, And Cancer-Causing Products

 

Bee-Keepers CANNOT BE TRUSTED

 

 

There are reports that Bee-Keepers ALL OVER NORTH AMERICA are LYING AND CHEATING by using ILLEGAL AND UNREGISTERED pest control products.

 

If Bee-Keepers are LYING AND CHEATING BY USING ILLEGAL PRODUCTS, then they are also LYING AND CHEATING with their public statements about bee deaths and Neonicotinoid Insecticides ?!?!

 

They are all ILLEGAL BASTERDS    how can they be trusted about ALLEGATIONS of bee deaths and Neonicotinoid Insecticides?!?!

 

Bee-Keepers are THE LEAST CREDIBLE AND THE LEAST QUALIFIED TO PROVIDE ANY ADVICE concerning Neonicotinoid Insecticides.

 

In Alberta, Bee-Keepers WERE FINED FOR USING UNREGISTERED PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS TO COMBAT MITE INFESTATIONS.

 

Attempts by these two Bee-Keepers to stop VARROA MITES from invading their bee-hives resulted in a HEFTY FINE from Health Canada.

 

Russell Severson of Camrose and Miedema Honey Farm Inc. of Barrhead, were fined after they USED UNREGISTERED AND ILLEGAL PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS in their bee-hives.

Bee-Keepers Use Illegal, Unregistered, Deadly, And Cancer-Causing Products

 

Bee-Keepers Have NO IDEA What They Are Doing

 

 

Miedema has ATTEMPTED TO JUSTIFY HIS ILLEGAL ACTS under the PRETEXT that he just wants to find a way to produce his honey effectively.

According to Miedema 

 

We can’t live without bees, bees are very important, so we are TRYING TO DO THE BEST WE CAN DO.

 

In other words, Bee-Keepers HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE DOING, and are WILLING TO VIOLATE FEDERAL USING FEEBLE PRETEXTS.

 

The ILLEGAL active ingredient used in both cases was AMITRAZ.

 

The owner of Miedema Honey Farm Inc., Folkert Miedema, said he used the product TACTIK, which is SOLD IN AUSTRALIA as a way to combat the mites.

 

Miedema said after using TACTIK this season, the product was much more effective than what was approved for use in Canada.

 

Health Canada’s Pesticide Compliance Program issued Miedema TWO VIOLATIONS    one, a 4,000-DOLLAR FINE FOR THE USE OF AN UNREGISTERED PRODUCT, and the other, for importing a product that contained thymol.

 

SIX NOTICES OF VIOLATION were handed out to Severson for a TOTAL FINE OF 31,200 DOLLARS FOR USING AN UNREGISTERED PRODUCT.

Bee-Keepers Use Illegal, Unregistered, Deadly, And Cancer-Causing Products

 

Bee-Keepers All Over North America Are LYING AND CHEATING By USING ILLEGAL AND UNREGISTERED Pest Control Products

 

 

According to Miedema 

 

It [ TACTIK ] is used [ ILLEGALLY ] ALL OVER THE UNITED STATES, and Bee-Keepers in CANADA use it too.

 

According to a biologist in America 

 

AMITRAZ was one of the first Varroa-cides to be registered in the U.S., and is effective against both the VARROA AND TRACHEAL MITES.

 

It was formulated in a plastic strip as Miticur, but the registration for use in bee hives was withdrawn after some LAWSUITS.

 

However, Bee-Keepers world-wide COMMONLY USE THE AG PRODUCTS TACTIK® AND OVASYN® OFF LABEL.

 

In other words, Bee-Keepers ALL OVER NORTH AMERICA are LYING AND CHEATING by using ILLEGAL, UNREGISTERED, DEADLY, and CANCER-CAUSING pest control products like Tactik.

 

Miedema said it was Bee-Keepers in the U.S. who recommended the use ILLEGAL AND UNREGISTERED pest control products.

 

Nonetheless, the product is ILLEGAL, and has NOT BEEN APPROVED for use in either Canada or America.

 

Tactik is also DEADLY and CAUSES CANCER.

In 2006, the United States Environmental Protection Agency ( USEPA ) classified AMITRAZ as a group C, A POSSIBLE HUMAN CARCINOGEN.

 

Furthermore, exposure of men to greater amounts of AMITRAZ can LEAD TO DEATH DUE TO RESPIRATORY FAILURE, mainly after oral uptake or inhalation.

In Turkey during 1989, 41 cases of DEADLY AMITRAZ INTOXICATIONS were detected.

 

Other frequently occurring symptoms after MASSIVE AMITRAZ INTOXICATION are BRADYCARDIA, CNS DEPRESSION, HYPERGLYCEMIA, HYPOTHERMIA, LOSS OF CONSCIOUSNESS, MIOSIS, RESPIRATORY DEPRESSION, and VOMITING.

 

In other words, Bee-Keepers are ILLEGALLY USING products that are known to CAUSE CANCER, and are known to KILL PEOPLE.

Varroa Mites Are THE PRIMARY PROBLEM Associated With Bee Mortality, And NOT Neonicotinoid Insecticides

 

 

Bee-Keepers nation-wide feel the sting of VARROA MITE infestation every year.

 

Since the mid-1990s when VARROA MITES made their way to Canada, Bee-Keepers have tried to combat them.

 

Products were developed to control VARROA MITES, but, within a few seasons, because of MIS-MANAGEMENT by Bee-Keepers, the VARROA MITES DEVELOPED RESISTANCE.

 

The Bee-Keeper Industry has gone through three products that control VARROA MITES, the latest being AMITRAZ, which is ILLEGAL, UNREGISTERED, DEADLY, and CANCER-CAUSING.

Grant Hicks, President of the Alberta Bee-Keepers Commission, said VARROA MITE infestations ARE THE CAUSE OF ROUGHLY HALF OF BEE DEATHS EVERY WINTER.

 

According to Hicks 

 

If you get a [ VARROA ] MITE on even one per cent of your bees, within two years you would LOSE THE ENTIRE HIVE.

 

Hicks NEVER MENTIONED ANYTHING about Neonicotinoid Insecticides.

 

In other words, the PRIMARY PROBLEM is VARROA MITES, and NOT Neonicotinoid Insecticides.

Bee-Keepers Know ALMOST NOTHING About Pest Control Products

 

 

The Province of Alberta houses 43 per cent of Canada’s bees, and is the fifth-largest honey producer in the world.

 

With 850 Bee-Keepers taking care of 282,000 hives, issues of non-compliance with federal law have to be taken seriously.

 

According to Alberta Provincial Apiculturist Medhat Nasr 

 

Some of these guys USE WORD OF MOUTH AND DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH OF THE PRODUCT TO APPLY AND HOW TO HANDLE PESTICIDES.

 

The danger is in three things  ―  risk for the applicators themselves, risk for the honey, and risk for the bees.

 

In other words, Bee-Keepers KNOW ALMOST NOTHING ABOUT PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS.

The Bee-Keeper Industry

 

 

Here is a summary of what is known about the Bee-Keeper Industry 

 

   Bee colony collapse disorder is the fault of bee-keepers and their mis-management practices.

 

   Bee-keepers all over North America are lying and cheating by using illegal and unregistered pest control products.

 

   Bee-keepers appear to be unable or unwilling to get their pest problems under control, such as Varroa mites.

 

   Bee-keepers are continuously stealing from other bee-keepers.

 

   Bee-keepers are conveniently overlooking the fact that coated corn seed is inaccessible to bees.

 

   Bee-keepers are harming bees, and not neonicotinoid insecticides.

 

   Bee-keepers are illegally using products like amitraz which is known to cause cancer, and is known to kill people.

 

   Bee-keepers are the least credible and the least qualified to provide any advice concerning neonicotinoid insecticides.

 

   Bee-keepers are wrong about neonicotinoid insecticides since the weight of the scientific evidence clearly shows that they do not affect bees.

 

   Bee-keepers avoid admitting that fugitive dust may be only one of several possible routes of exposure.

 

   Bee-keepers cannot be trusted.

 

   Bee-keepers fail to admit that there are only a small number of reports of bee losses.

 

   Bee-keepers have no idea what they are doing.

 

   Bee-keepers know almost nothing about pest control products.

 

   Bee-keepers seem to be blissfully unaware that Varroa mites are problem no. 1

 

   Bee-keepers use illegal, unregistered, deadly, and cancer-causing products, and thus, bee-keepers are producing potentially dangerous honey.

 

   Varroa mites are the primary problem associated with bee mortality, and not neonicotinoid insecticides.

Background Information From An Independent Perspective

 

Bee-Keepers Are HARMING BEES, And NOT Insecticides

 

 

There is NO EVIDENCE TO SUGGEST A LINK between Neonicotinoid Insecticides and Bee Colony Collapse Disorder.

 

Neonicotinoid Insecticides, like Imidacloprid, are widely used for the control of insect pests in lawns, gardens, ornamental plants, and agriculture. 

 

In fact, there is OVERWHELMING SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE demonstrating that Neonicotinoid Insecticides are NOT A SIGNIFICANT FACTOR IN OVERALL BEE HEALTH DECLINE.

 

Moreover, researchers have NOT been able to identify a single cause of Bee Colony Collapse Disorder.

 

Overall, Neonicotinoid Insecticides DO NOT HARM BEES. 

 

However, Bee-Keepers are HARMING BEES with their MIS-MANAGEMENT PRACTICES.

 

Since 2006, Anti-Pesticide Bee-Keepers have FALSELY ALLEGED that there are so-called links and causes between the Neonicotinoid Insecticides like Imidacloprid and Bee Colony Collapse Disorder.

 

This is FALSE !

Varroa Mites Are The Prime Suspects In Bee Deaths

 

 

International researchers widely agree that bee health is impacted by A COMBINATION OF FACTORS, THE PRIMARY ONE BEING VARROA MITES.

 

According to the U.S. Agriculture Department and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, THE SINGLE MOST DETRIMENTAL PESTS OF HONEYBEES ARE VARROA MITES.

 

According to Ernesto Guzman, a Bee Researcher at the University of Guelph, VARROA MITES continue to be THE PRIME SUSPECT IN BEE DEATHS.

 

According to Guzman, there is evidence that VARROA MITES ARE THE PRIMARY PROBLEM ASSOCIATED WITH BEE MORTALITY in Southern Ontario, although Neonicotinoid Insecticides have been associated with some ISOLATED CASES of colony mortality.

Background Information From An Independent Perspective

 

Bee-Keepers Must Get Their Mite Problems Under Control

 

 

According to Alberta Bee-Keepers Commission, VARROA MITES ARE THE CAUSE OF ROUGHLY HALF OF BEE DEATHS EVERY WINTER.

 

If VARROA MITES infest even one per cent of bees, within two years, THE ENTIRE HIVE COULD BE LOST.

 

Alberta Bee-Keepers Commission NEVER MENTIONED ANYTHING about Neonicotinoid Insecticides.

 

Bee-Keepers MUST GET THEIR VARROA MITE PROBLEMS UNDER CONTROL to rein in the collapse of bee colonies.

 

Bee-Keepers appear to be UNABLE OR UNWILLING to get their pest problems, such as VARROA MITES, under control to rein in the collapse of their bee colonies.

 

The weight of the scientific evidence clearly shows that Neonicotinoid Insecticides DO NOT AFFECT BEES.

 

The exposure of bees to Neonicotinoid Insecticides is at very low levels, far too low to cause harmful effects.

 

Neonicotinoid Insecticides WILL CAUSE NO HARM TO BEES since treated plant tissues contain only TINY amounts of ingredient, bees are not feeding on the plants, and pollen contains barely detectable levels.

 

If Bee-Keepers were not so SCIENTIFICALLY ILLITERATE, they would know that scientific research shows that, as reported through EPA’s and Health Canada’s VAST TOXICOLOGY DATABASE, NO HARM WILL OCCUR TO BEES. 

 

Neonicotinoid Insecticides have been thoroughly assessed by Health Canada to ensure THEY CAN BE USED SAFELY WITHOUT HARMING BEES.

Background Information From An Independent Perspective

 

Insecticide-Treated Seed

 

 

Bee-Keepers CONVENIENTLY OVERLOOK the fact that INSECTICIDE-COATED CORN SEED used by the agriculture industry is INACCESSIBLE TO BEES.

 

One of the uses of Neonicotinoid Insecticides is as A COATING APPLIED TO CORN SEEDS to protect the plants, as well as bees.

 

The seed itself takes care of its own pest management, not only as a seed but as it grows and matures into a stalk of corn with cobs.

 

It is a SAFE AND TARGETED WAY to use the insecticide WITHOUT HARMING POLLINATORS.

 

The Neonicotinoid Insecticide is coated on the seed, and the seed is buried in the soil, so it is INACCESSIBLE TO THE BEES.

Background Information From An Independent Perspective

 

Canadian Bee Mortalities

 

 

Bee-Keepers FAIL TO ADMIT that there are only A SMALL NUMBER of reports of bee losses.

 

The information evaluated to date suggests that coated corn seeds contributed to a SMALL NUMBER of bee losses.

 

Between April and June 2012, Health Canada received a SMALL NUMBER OF REPORTS OF BEE LOSSES from across Southern Ontario, involving a mere 40 Bee-Keepers, as well as 1 report from Quebec.

 

At present, there are 2,900 Bee-Keepers in Ontario, therefore, the affected Bee-Keepers REPRESENT LESS THAN 1.5 PER CENT OF ALL Bee-Keepers in Ontario.

 

Ontario’s SMALL NUMBER of bee die-offs in 2012 raised the UNJUSTIFIED QUESTIONS of how bees were coming into contact with Neonicotinoid Insecticides.

 

Bee Colony Collapse Disorder is THE FAULT OF Bee-Keepers and THEIR MIS-MANAGEMENT PRACTICES. 

 

Bee-Keepers ARE RESPONSIBLE, and NOT Neonicotinoid Insecticides.

EU Nations Do Not Want Prohibition

 

 

The MAJORITY of European Union ( EU ) nations DO NOT WANT Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION.

 

EU Government Officials ARE THINKING TWICE BEFORE BANNING PESTICIDES.

 

European Union nations have been UNABLE TO REACH AGREEMENT on proposals to ARBITRARILY PROHIBIT the use of three Neonicotinoid Insecticides that have been linked to the decline of bees.

 

A decline in bee population was linked by FALSE ALLEGATIONS against Neonicotinoid Insecticides.

 

The European Commission had called for a two-year EU-wide MORATORIUM ( a.k.a. Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION ), but a MAJORITY of nations OPPOSED THE PLANS.

 

European Union nations were UNABLE TO REACH A QUALIFIED MAJORITY in order for PROHIBITION to be adopted.

 

The EU MAJORITY DECISION AGAINST PROHIBITION is a clear recognition that THERE IS NO CONVINCING ARGUMENT against the continued use of Neonicotinoid Insecticides. 

 

Furthermore, the Pest Management Regulatory Agency of Health Canada DISAGREES WITH THE EU DECISION, and DOES NOT BELIEVE THAT PROHIBITION IS NECESSARY.

 

Canada WILL NOT FOLLOW THE LEAD OF EUROPE by proposing an UNFOUNDED KNEE-JERK PROHIBITION against Neonicotinoid Insecticides.

 

Consequently, EU’s PROHIBITION has put it at a DISADVANTAGE since it has now become the world’s largest food importer.

Discover What Anti-Pesticide And Enviro-Lunatic Terrorists Are Doing And Saying About Subversively Imposing Their Life-Style Choices Against Our Society

 

 

Read    Force Of Nature and Pesticide Truths    The Whole Truth From An Independent Perspective.

 

Communities and businesses are being HARMED and DESTROYED and RAPED by PROHIBITIONS against pest control products used in the Urban Landscape, and by other ACTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISM.

 

We are living in the 9|11 Era of Anti Pesticide and Environmental Terrorism where at least ONE SUBVERSIVE ACT OF TERROR is perpetrated EVERY SINGLE DAY by these terrorist.

 

We are living in the DARK AGE OF ANTI PESTICIDE TERRORISM where sound science is trumped by FAKE SCIENTISTS, JUNK SCIENCE and UNVERIFIABLE SECRET EVIDENCE through FABRICATION, INNUENDO, and INTERNET RUMOR    scientific research PROVES that pest control products CAUSE NO HARM and can be USED SAFELY.

 

An informed public is better able to protect itself and its communities and businesses from so-called activists who are THE LEAST QUALIFIED TO PROVIDE ANY ADVICE about pest control products or the environment.

 

NORAHG is the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that seek to harm the Green space industry, and the well-being of our communities.

 

NORAHG morally represents the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of people associated with turf and ornamental plant maintenance who are OPPOSED to Anti Pesticide PROHIBITION and the CLOSURE or ABANDONMENT of green spaces under the RIDICULOUS PRETEXT of somehow « saving » the environment.   http://wp.me/P1jq40-2bo  

 

NORAHG is a NATIONAL NON-PROFIT NON-PARTISAN organization that does not accept money from corporations or governments or trade associations, and represents NO VESTED INTERESTS WHATSOEVER.

 

NORAHG is dedicated to reporting the work of RESPECTED and HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS who promote ENVIRONMENTAL REALISM and PESTICIDE TRUTHS.   http://wp.me/p1jq40-5DD  

 

NORAHG responds on behalf of the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of the public that DOES NOT WANT PESTICIDE BANS, and SUPPORT those who work in the Professional Lawn Care Industry.   http://wp.me/P1jq40-2bo  

 

NORAHG is opposed to Pesticide-Free jurisdictions that have DOOMED children to SUFFER INJURIES since Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION inevitably leads to public and residential green spaces that become DANGEROUS AND PEST-INFESTED GARBAGE DUMPS.   http://wp.me/P1jq40-44g   http://wp.me/P1jq40-4z3  

 

NORAHG is concerned that, without pest control products, CHILDREN ARE AT HIGHER RISK OF SUFFERING INJURIES with the creation of HAZARDOUS SLIPPING AND TRIPPING CONDITIONS in sports turf.   http://wp.me/P1jq40-2ha  

 

NORAHG pledges to deliver comprehensive reports that are worthy of peoples’ time and of peoples’ concern, reports that might ordinarily never have breached the parapet.

 

NORAHG was the brainchild of William H. Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991.  Mr. Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.

 

Force Of Nature was launched by NORAHG for CONTINUOUS transmission on the Internet on January 1st, 2009      however, the VERY FIRST Stand-Alone FORCE OF NATURE Report was issued on September 19th, 2008.

 

On March 15th, 2010, Uncle Adolph independently launched The Pesticide Truths, an easy-to-use Web-Site that collects relevant reports of information right-off-the-press.   http://pesticidetruths.com/  

 

Pesticide Truths and Force Of Nature, in some ways, are like Google for everything concerning the SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES of Anti-Pesticide and Enviro-Lunatic Terrorists.
