  1. The Department of Agriculture deserves praise and congratulation.  There is no evidence to suggest a link between pest control products and bee health.  Pesticides ( and GMO crops ) do not harm bees.  However, the bee-keepers themselves are harming bees.  If some anti-pesticide activists and 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 with pest control products.  Bee deaths are the fault of bee-keepers and their mis-management practices.  Bee-keepers are responsible, and not pest control products and GMO crops.  In their usual method of arriving at scientifically illiterate conclusions, the anti-pesticide activists and bee-keepers have somehow concocted the imaginary danger in order to deflect attention from the real problems.  Of course, this is a myth !  Anti-pesticide activists and bee-keepers are the least qualified to provide any advice on this issue.   WILLIAM H.
