FACT Two Bumble Bee Studies Were Published In August 2017    The Fanatжcal Ideologically-Driven Study That Failed To Show Any Risk Of Extinction VERSUS The Legitimate & Credible Study That Found No Impact Of Insecticide Exposure

 

 

FACT Bee Conspiracy Fanatжcs Have Shifted Their Ideologically-Driven Attacks From Honeybees To Bumble Bees, Because Honeybees Are No Longer Considered Endangered

 

 

SUMMARY

 

For the last decade, bee conspiracy fanatжcs, joined by some bee-keepers and activist-scientists, have fingered a culprit for the presumed mass honeybee die-off. 

 

These fanatжcs have blamed neonicotinoid insecticides for everything from so-called bee colony collapse disorder    a still-unexplained condition in which bees suddenly abandon their colonies that has come and gone over the last decade, just as it has many times in history    to recent years elevated over-winter honey bee colony losses. 

 

Their FALSE-ALARMS are part of a LARGELY IDEOLOGICALLY-DRIVEN AGENDA. 

 

There has been a huge volume of data, including many field studies, on honeybees, which show that, in real world conditions, honeybees ARE NOT ENDANGERED because of Neonicotinoid Insecticides. 

 

Consequently, the focus of bee conspiracy fanatжcs SHIFTED TO BUMBLE BEES once it was clear that HONEYBEES WERE NOT ENDANGERED by neonicotinoid insecticides. 

 

 

FACT Losses Of Honeybees Have Occurred Mainly Because They Have Been Mis-Managed Like Agricultural Livestock By Incompetent & Unskilled Bee-Keepers

 

 

SUMMARY

 

Many bee-keepers have NO idea what they are doing, and are simply NOT skilled to raise bees    their honeybees are MIS-MANAGED LIKE AGRICULTURAL LIVESTOCK, which adds formidable stress. 

 

There have been some spikes in the over-winter losses of bees beyond the 20 per cent, or so, that is considered unacceptable by bee-keepers. 

 

But it has become clear to most entomologists that the health problems afflicting honeybees are attributable to a complex set of factors. 

 

Overall, the main causes of honeybee losses are Varroa mites, poor queens, weak colonies, weather conditions, as well as bee-keeper incompetency    bee-keepers know full well that these are the primary problems associated with bee losses, and not insecticides. 

 

Varroa mites transmit, and make virulent, up to a dozen viruses and diseases in honey bee colonies    and have been around in growing numbers since the 1980s. 

 

Some bee-keepers have been losing their bees over and over again simply because they are INCOMPETENT AND UNSKILLED    they MIS-MANAGE THEIR BEES BY TREATING THEM LIKE AGRICULTURAL LIVESTOCK. 

 

 

FACT University Of Guelph Has Attempted To Discredit The Legitimate ⁄ Credible Bumble Bee Study, By Prejudicially Favouring Another Study With Apocalyptic Findings  Of The Ideologically-Driven Fanatжcs

 

 

SUMMARY

 

In August 2017, TWO STUDIES on the health of BUMBLE BEES and so-called links to Neonicotinoid Insecticides were published SIMULTANEOUSLY the science journal Nature. 

 

And they came up with RADICALLY DIFFERENT CONCLUSIONS as to the effect of the neonicotinoid insecticides, as interpreted by both FANATЖCAL versis LEGITIMATE & CREDIBLE researchers. 

 

Both studies were NOT identical in focus, although they had one co-author in common    Nigel Raine, the neonicotinoid-hating and fanatжcal-activist researcher, of the University of Guelph. 

 

Raine has already been ASSOCIATED WITH A NUMBER OF CONTROVERSIAL STUDIES against neonicotinoid insecticides. 

 

Both studies looked at different stages in the life cycle of BUMBLE BEES and their QUEENS. 

 

However, the findings about the differences in bee health could NOT have been more different. 

 

And what about the University of Guelph, which operates as a left-wing pesticide-hating institution in Ontario. 

 

On what basis does this institution promote the APOCALYPTIC findings of a fanatжcal study while IGNORING THE CONTRADICTORY FINDINGS of another, more legitimate and more credible, study. 

 

 

FACT The Legitimate Study’s Remarkable Conclusion Was That There Are No Adverse Neonicotinoid Effects On Mature Colonies

 

 

SUMMARY

 

The legitimate & credible bumble bee queen study, led by Dara Stanley, found that neonicotinoid insecticides CAUSED NO SERIOUS ISSUES, but was IGNORED by the left-wing fake-news media. 

 

Furthermore, this study DID NOT benefit from advance press advisories    and predictably, unlike the parallel study, it was NOT heavily promoted by University of Guelph and received NO press attention. 

 

Could this be because its conclusion was REMARKABLE, but in a different way    this legitimate study identified NO NEGATIVE EFFECTS ?!?! 

 

Tellingly, neither Nature, nor any of the fake-news media coverage, even bothered to mention this parallel study. 

 

According to the legitimate bumble bee queen study’s REMARKABLE CONCLUSION    We found NO IMPACT OF INSECTICIDE EXPOSURE on colony weight gain or the number and mass of sexual produced, although colonies exposed to 2.4 ppb produced larger males. 

 

 

FACT The Fanatжcal Study Failed To Show That There Was Evidence That Bumble Bees Are At Risk For Extinction

 

 

SUMMARY

 

The fanatжcal bumble bee queen study, led by Gemma Baron of the United Kingdom’s Royal Holloway University, suggested queens might face MORTAL DANGER.  [ ?!?! ] 

 

This study was widely circulated by the left-wing fake-news media as DEFINITIVE.  [ ?!?! ] 

 

It placed bumble bees at the RISK OF EXTINCTION.  [ ?!?! ] 

 

According to Raine    This study shows that neonicotinoids COULD be having a DEVASTATING EFFECT on wild bumble bee populations.  [ ?!?! ] 

 

It is not hard to see why this fanatжcal study got intense fake-news media attention. 

 

Apocalyptic predictions grab headlines and generated a tremendous amount of fake-news coverage. 

 

However, this fanatжcal study CONTRADICTS what we know already about bees and neonicotinoid insecticides. 

 

The German Plant Protection Industry Group, and some expert independent toxicological bee research scientists, DISMISSED this fanatжcal study as typical of CAMPAIGN-STYLE ADVOCACY RESEARCH with the sole aim of DISCREDITING PLANT PROTECTION PRODUCTS. 

 

Additionally, the fanatжcal study DID NOT make its case. 

 

There is still NO EVIDENCE that bumble bees are at risk for global extinction, or even localized extinction, in the wild. 

 

 

FACT Honeybee Colonies Around The World Are At All-Time Highs

 

 

SUMMARY

 

It is now widely understood that bee populations are at GENERATIONAL HIGHS, RISING in Europe and in North America. 

 

With some set-backs, linked largely to cold winters and the lingering effects of so-called bee colony collapse disorder, bee populations have been RISING ever since Neonicotinoid Insecticides came on the market in the mid-1990s. 

 

There is NO honeybee apocalypse on the horizon. 

 

 

FACT Bee Catastrophe Speculation Against Neonicotinoid Insecticides Is Just Not Supported By Legitimate & Credible Scientific Data

 

 

SUMMARY

 

Legitimate expert-scientist Ms Angela Gradish questions many aspects of the fanatжcal bumble bee study, and its central conclusion. 

 

It is a form of CATASTROPHE SPECULATION THAT IS JUST NOT SUPPORTED BY THE DATA, Ms Gradish said. 

 

According to Ms Gradish, Post-Doctoral Fellow and Pesticide Eco-Toxicologist, who researches and teaches at University of Guelph    That’s just not enough information to make such a sweeping conclusion.  By characterizing this study as « realistic », the authors imply that the results they’ve obtained are likely to happen.  But what they’ve actually replicated is a type of WORST CASE SCENARIO.  We have other studies that have shown NO effects, so giving studies like this exclusive coverage, gives the false impression all the research points in the same direction, to health threats.  This was what I would call a « worst case » exposure scenario.  The bottom line is what happens in the REAL WORLD. 

 

 

FACT Bee Losses Caused By Neonicotinoid Insecticides Is A Myth

 

 

SUMMARY

 

Science is being massaged by untruthful bee conspiracy fanatжcs. 

 

Overall, so-called links and causes between bee losses and neonicotinoid insecticides are mere MYTHS. 

 

There is NO neonicotinoid crisis. 

 

The MYTH of disappearing bees is a political disease that can only be eradicated with the truth.

Fanatжcal Versus Legitimate ⁄ Credible Studies

 

 

Two Bumble Bee Studies Were Published In

August 2017    The Fanatжcal Ideologically-

Driven Study That Failed To Show Any Risk Of

Extinction VERSUS The Legitimate Study That

Found No Impact Of Insecticide Exposure

 

 

TWO STUDIES on the health of BUMBLE BEES and [ so-called ] links to Neonicotinoid Insecticides were published SIMULTANEOUSLY in August 2017 in sister publications of the prestigious science journal empire Nature. 

 

Both examined closely similar scientific questions, with somewhat different experimental methodologies. 

 

But the [ legitimate & credible ] study that found that Neonicotinoid Insecticides CAUSED NO SERIOUS ISSUES was IGNORED by the media while the one suggesting a bee-apocalypse was widely played up as « definitive ».  [ ?!?! ] 

 

Let’s unpack what these studies actually showed, and reflect on why the studies have been reported on so differently. 

 

The studies were NOT identical in focus, although they had one author in common    NIGEL RAINE [ the neonicotinoid-hating & fanatжcal-activist-researcher ] of the UNIVERSITY OF GUELPH [ the left-wing pesticide-hating institution ] in Ontario. 

 

They looked at different stages in the life cycle of BUMBLE BEES and their queens. 

 

So, on that basis alone, the findings about the differences in bee health could have been different. 

 

But the issue here is not only the conclusions, but the reporting on the studies. 

 

The fanatжcal ideologically-driven study FAILED to show any risk of bumble bee extinction. 

 

The legitimate⁄credible study that found NO IMPACT of insecticide exposure on bumble bees.

Controversial Neonicotinoid-Hating Researcher &

Co-Author Of The Fanatжcal Bumble Bee Queen Study

 

Rain Is Employed By The University Of Guelph, The

Left-Wing Pesticide-Hating Institution In Ontario

 

 

One [ fanatжcal ] study    the one that suggested bumble bee queens might face mortal danger [ ?!?! ]    was widely circulated. 

 

It reported, according to a press release by the [ left-wing pesticide-hating ] UNIVERSITY OF GUELPH, that Neonicotinoid Insecticides placed bumble bees at the risk of extinction.  [ ?!?! ] 

 

According to NIGEL RAINE [ the neonicotinoid-hating & fanatжcal-activist-researcher ]   

 

This [ fanatжcal ] study shows that NEONICOTINOIDS COULD BE HAVING A DEVASTATING EFFECT ON WILD BUMBLE BEE POPULATIONS [ ?!?! ]. 

 

We urgently need to know more about how pesticides could be affecting other species to make informed decisions about the risks associated with using these chemicals. 

 

It’s not hard to see why this [ fanatжcal ] study got intense media attention. 

 

APOCALYPTIC PREDICTIONS GRAB HEADLINES. 

 

Understandably, this [ fanatжcal ] study generated a tremendous amount of scary news coverage. 

 

The media was all over this [ fanatжcal ] study with literally dozens of stories in prestigious publications and it swamped social media.

Fanatжcal Study’s Bee-Apocalypse That Never Happened

 

 

Honeybee Colonies Around The

World Are At All-Time Highs

 

Bee Losses Caused By Neonicotinoid

Insecticides Is A Myth

 

 

The title of the [ fanatжcal ] study’s press release was APOCALYPTIC. 

 

The [ fanatжcal ] study also CONTRADICTS what we know about honeybees and Neonicotinoid Insecticides, a subject of intense scrutiny. 

 

For years, a minority of scientists and an overwhelming majority of reporters with LITTLE CLUE ABOUT THE SCIENCE, predicted the demise of honey bees    remember the now infamous 2013 Time cover story, A World Without Bees.  [ See card above. ]

 

Since then the opposite has happened. 

 

Honeybee colonies around the world ARE AT ALL-TIME HIGHS. 

 

[ See later segment entitled Bees Are GROWING & THRIVING. ]

 

Environmental advocates [ i.e. bee conspiracy fanatжcs ], joined by some bee-keepers and [ activist- ] scientists, had already fingered a culprit for the presumed mass honeybee die-off. 

 

They have BLAMED Neonicotinoid Insecticides for everything from [ so-called ] bee colony collapse disorder    a still-unexplained condition in which bees suddenly abandon their colonies that has come and gone over the last decade, just as it has many times in history    to recent years’ elevated over-winter honey bee colony losses. 

 

Now we know that was a FALSE, LARGELY IDEOLOGICALLY DRIVEN, ALARM. 

 

It’s now widely understood that bee populations are at GENERATIONAL HIGHS, rising in Europe and North America. 

 

With some set-backs, linked largely to cold winters and the lingering effects of [ so-called ] bee colony collapse disorder, bee populations have been RISING ever since Neonicotinoid Insecticides came on the market in the mid-1990s. 

 

There is NO honeybee apocalypse on the horizon.

Winter Death Rates & Bee-Keeper Mis-Management

 

 

Losses Of Honeybees Have Occurred

Mainly Because They Have Been Mis-

Managed Like Agricultural Livestock By

Incompetent & Unskilled Bee-Keepers

 

 

That’s not to say that all is rosy with the world bee population. 

 

There have been some spikes in the over-winter death rate beyond the 20 per cent or so that is considered unacceptable by bee-keepers. 

 

[  Overall, the main causes of honeybee losses are Varroa mites, poor queens, weak colonies, weather conditions, as well as bee-keeper incompetency    bee-keepers know full well that these are the primary problems associated with bee losses, and not insecticides.  ]

 

And bees, which are TREATED LIKE AGRICULTURAL LIVESTOCK by commercial bee-keepers, do face unusual stressors. 

 

But it’s become clear to most entomologists that the health problems afflicting honeybees are attributable to a complex set of factors, at the center of which is the ubiquitous and hard-to-combat Varroa Mite. 

 

The pest transmits and makes virulent up to a dozen viruses and diseases in honey bee colonies    and has been around in growing numbers since the 1980s.

Fanatжcal Study’s Claim That Bumble Bees Are Near Extinction

 

 

Bee Conspiracy Fanatжcs Have Shifted Their

Ideologically-Driven Attacks From Honeybees

To Bumble Bees, Because Honeybees Are

No Longer Considered Endangered

 

 

But what about BUMBLE BEES ?!?! 

 

The focus of anti-pesticide campaigners SHIFTED TO BUMBLE BEES once it was clear that honeybees were NOT ENDANGERED. 

 

There is a huge volume of data, including many field studies, on honeybees, which show that in real world conditions, HONEYBEES ARE NOT ENDANGERED because of Neonicotinoid Insecticides. 

 

There is not so much research on BUMBLE BEES, however. 

 

These two recent studies were designed to begin to address that research gap. 

 

Both studies addressed the effects of one Neonicotinoid Insecticide    Thiamethoxam    on BUMBLE BEE colonies. 

 

Neither could be called « field realistic ». 

 

One focused on queens before they started laying eggs. 

 

The other targeted established colonies. 

 

Both exposed their target subjects to jugs of neonicotinoid-laced syrup over many days    nothing like they would have experienced in REAL WORLD conditions. 

 

And THEY CAME UP WITH RADICALLY DIFFERENT CONCLUSIONS as to the effect of the chemical, as interpreted by the researchers. 

 

Let’s dig deeper. 

 

The [ fanatжcal ] study on queens, led by GEMMA BARON of the United Kingdom’s Royal Holloway University, exposed mated ( fertilized ) queen bees of Bombus terrestris    one of the most ubiquitous of the more than 250 known BUMBLE BEE species    to two weeks of laboratory feedings of sugar syrup spiked with what was claimed to be « field realistic » concentrations of the Neonicotinoid Insecticide Thiamethoxam ( 2.4 parts per billion ). 

 

[ Bombus terrestris, the buff-tailed bumble bee or large earth bumble bee, is one of the most numerous bumble bee species in Europe. ] 

 

The result, they said, was a 26 per cent reduction in the frequency of treated queens initiating a new colony by post-hibernation egg-laying. 

 

The reduction was said to be more pronounced after a long hibernation ( 12 weeks ) rather than a short one ( 6 weeks )    even though a realistic hibernation would be more like 6-9 months ! 

 

The [ fanatжcal ] study’s key finding was summarized in this graphic.  [ See card below. ]

Effect Of Pesticide Exposure On Egg Laying

 

 

Insecticide Exposure Positively

Affects Bumble Bee Egg Laying

 

Bumble Bee Queens Exposed To

Insecticide Out-Layed The Un-

Treated Queens At Day 12

 

 

This event history curve of the [ fanatжcal ] study shows the cumulative probability of egg laying ( from the end of hibernation ( zero days ) until the first egg was laid by queens exposed to either the insecticide Thiamethoxam or a control. 

 

But look at the [ fanatжcal ] study’s graph carefully, and notice the crossed lines near 50 days. 

 

The graph shows that BUMBLE BEE queens exposed to Thiamethoxam out-layed the un-treated ( control ) queens from around day 12. 

 

Only after day 50 did the treated queens’ egg-laying plateau and the untreated ( control ) queens’ egg-laying decidedly surpass it. 

 

That slender basis drove the radical conclusions of the [ fanatжcal ] study, which    recklessly say some scientists    PROJECTED THE POSSIBLE EXTINCTION of one of the world’s most prolific and ubiquitous wild bee species.

Bee Catastrophe Speculation Against

Neonicotinoid Insecticides Is Just Not

Supported By Legitimate Scientific Data

 

 

According to [ Legitimate Expert-Scientist ] Ms Gradish, Post-Doctoral Fellow and Pesticide Eco-Toxicologist, who also happens to research and teach at UNIVERSITY OF GUELPH   

 

That’s just not enough information to make such a sweeping conclusion. 

 

Ms Gradish does not currently do research on Neonicotinoid Insecticides, but is a Pesticide Eco-Toxicologist who studies the impact of pesticides on pollinators. 

 

MS GRADISH QUESTIONS MANY ASPECTS OF THE STUDY, AND ITS CENTRAL CONCLUSION. 

 

According to Ms Angela Gradish, Post-Doctoral Fellow and Pesticide Eco-Toxicologist   

 

By characterizing this study as « realistic », the authors imply that the results they’ve obtained are likely to happen. 

 

But what they’ve actually replicated is a type of WORST CASE SCENARIO. 

 

IT’S A FORM OF CATASTROPHE SPECULATION THAT’S JUST NOT SUPPORTED BY THE DATA, Ms Gradish said. 

 

According to Ms Angela Gradish, Post-Doctoral Fellow and Pesticide Eco-Toxicologist   

 

We have other studies that have shown NO effects, so giving studies like this exclusive coverage, gives the false impression all the research points in the same direction, to health threats. 

 

Other research tells a different story    notably the United Kingdom’s Center for Ecology and Hydrology August 2016 study modeling neonicotinoid impacts on wild bee populations in England and David Kleijn’s team’s June 2015 study of crop pollination services by wild pollinators ) showing that Bombus terrestris, among other bee species that forage on neonicotinoid-treated oilseed rape crops, HAD NOT EVEN DECLINED, MUCH LESS STARTED TOWARD EXTINCTION.

Fanatжcal Study’s Exaggerated Results

 

 

But this [ fanatжcal ] study’s results have been EXAGGERATED in other ways. 

 

First, NO real explanation is offered for why BUMBLE BEE queens exposed to the Thiamethoxam consistently outperformed unexposed queens in egg-laying during the first two-thirds to three-fourths of the study period. 

 

The most logical explanation is heresies    a well-known phenomenon in which low doses of certain pesticides have a simulative effect on some insect activities and functions. 

 

I’ve noted this phenomenon previously in other studies of Neonicotinoid Insecticides’ effects on bees, but it’s not even mentioned or explored in this [ fanatжcal ] study on BUMBLE BEES led by GEMMA BARON. 

 

 

 

――――――――――――――――――――

Ms Angela Gradish    Part 2

 

 

Second, as [ Legitimate Expert-Scientist ] Ms Gradish points out, what’s claimed to be a « field-realistic » dose of 2.4 ppb of neonicotinoid-spiked sugar syrup fed to the BUMBLE BEE queens for 14 days is almost certainly UNrealistic. 

 

Ms Angela Gradish is a Post-Doctoral Fellow and Pesticide Eco-Toxicologist. 

 

There is NO single concentration that is universally agreed upon as realistic, Ms Gradish says. 

 

 

 

――――――――――――――――――――

 

 

 

Bumble Bee Queen Studies    Science Can Be Massaged    The Wisdom Of Entine

 

Fanatжcal Study’s Cherry-Picking

 

 

RESEARCHERS ARE FREE TO USE WHAT THEY WANT AND EVERYONE SEEMS TO CHERRY-PICK A VALUE FROM THE LITERATURE. 

 

This figure was taken from a 2013 field study by the United Kingdom’s Food and Environment Research Agency of neonicotinoid effects on BUMBLE BEES. 

 

But, of the three experimental sites in that study    2.4 ppb was the highest neonicotinoid concentration detected, not the average or the median. 

 

The other two sites’ detected concentrations of 0.885 ppb and 0 ppb. 

 

In other words, this [ fanatжcal ] study’s authors CHOSE THE WORST-CASE SCENARIO DOSE from one BUMBLE BEE study    not even an average 0.986 ppb    of the concentrations found at its three sites    and represented it as « field-realistic »    with NO justification. 

 

By this logic, a field-realistic Thiamethoxam dose for Bombus terrestris queens for this [ fanatжcal ] study could just as easily have been less than 1 ppb ( 0.885 )    or even zero ppb ! 

 

Even if the dosage might be the correct one, it still DOES NOT make the [ fanatжcal ] study any more convincing. 

 

« Force-feeding bees even a realistic concentration continuously for 14-27 days, as they did in these two studies, is not realistic or representative of what they would be exposed to in real life ». 

 

In other words, weeks of exclusively feeding neonicotinoid-spiked syrup to BUMBLEBEE queens is itself field-UNrealistic. 

 

In field settings, even amid large acreage of neonicotinoid-treated crops, Bombus terrestris queens would have access to wild flowers and other natural forage plants surrounding the planted croplands. 

 

These would dilute their neonicotinoid-treated diet in ways not reflected in this lab [ fanatжcal ] study.

 

According to [ Legitimate Expert-Scientist ] Ms Angela Gradish, Post-Doctoral Fellow and Pesticide Eco-Toxicologist   

 

This was what I would call a « worst case » exposure scenario. 

 

In the REAL WORLD, bees DO NOT forage on only one type of plant continuously for weeks on end, and they are NOT exposed to residues in every plant at the highest values ever recorded, like this type of exposure scenario assumes. 

 

SOME STUDIES INDICATE THAT AS MUCH AS 95 PER CENT OF SEED-TREATED CROP PLANTS SHOW NO TRACES OF NEONICOTINOID INSECTICIDES AT FLOWERING. 

 

So, it’s important to interpret the results from such studies in a worst-case scenario context. 

 

These research design choices are a familiar recipe    one I’ve written about repeatedly    OVERDOSE BEES WITH NEONICOTINOID INSECTICIDES IN A FIELD TEST OR LABORATORY ( WITHOUT BEING CLEAR THAT THIS IS WHAT’S BEEN DONE ); DISCOVER ( NO SURPRISE ) SOME NEGATIVE EFFECT. 

 

THEN, EXTRAPOLATE THE RESULT TO A SCARY CONCLUSION. 

 

Add press promotion ( e.g., an embargoed university press release ) and, voilà    instant publicity for a new « scientific discovery ».

The « Other » Legitimate ⁄ Credible Study

 

 

The Legitimate⁄Credible Study’s Remarkable

Conclusion Was That There Are No Adverse

Neonicotinoid Effects On Mature Colonies

 

 

Only this time, on the very same day that Nature published GEMMA BARON’s team’s [ fanatжcal ] study, it also published a study by Dara Stanley, also teamed with NIGEL RAINE [ the neonicotinoid-hating & fanatжcal-activist-researcher ]. 

 

More prosaically titled, « Bumble Bee Colony Development Following Chronic Exposure To Field-Realistic Levels Of The Neonicotinoid Pesticide Thiamethoxam Under Laboratory Conditions », this study subjected different groups of mature Bombus terrestris colonies to two different neonicotinoid exposure levels    2.4 ppb and 10 ppb    or up to 27 days. 

 

The [ legitimate & credible ] study DID NOT benefit from advance press advisories    and predictably, unlike the parallel study, it was NOT heavily promoted by UNIVERSITY OF GUELPH and received NO press attention. 

 

Could it be because its conclusion was remarkable, but in a different way    the [ legitimate & credible ] study identified NO NEGATIVE EFFECTS ?!?! 

 

« WE FOUND NO IMPACT OF INSECTICIDE EXPOSURE ON COLONY WEIGHT GAIN OR THE NUMBER AND MASS OF SEXUAL PRODUCED, although colonies exposed to 2.4 ppb produced larger males. » 

 

Tellingly, neither Nature nor any of the media coverage devoted to the alarming-sounding GEMMA BARON’s [ fanatжcal ] study even bothered to mention this parallel study, which found NO ADVERSE NEONICOTINOID EFFECTS ON MATURE BOMBUS TERRESTRIS COLONIES. 

 

Maybe that’s why the German Plant Protection Industry Group, and some independent scientists familiar with the nuts and bolts of toxicological bee research DISMISSED THE FIRST [ fanatжcal ] STUDY AS TYPICAL OF « CAMPAIGN-STYLE ADVOCACY RESEARCH » WITH « THE SOLE AIM OF DISCREDITING PLANT PROTECTION PRODUCTS ».

According to [ Legitimate Expert-Scientist ] Ms Angela Gradish, Post-Doctoral Fellow and Pesticide Eco-Toxicologist   

 

The bottom line is what happens in the REAL WORLD. 

 

As far as I’m aware, THERE ISN’T ANY EVIDENCE THAT THIS SPECIES OF BUMBLE BEE IS AT RISK FOR EXTINCTION OR EVEN LOCALIZED EXTINCTION IN THE WILD. 

 

This study doesn’t make its case.

FACT Many Bee-Keepers Have No Idea What They Are Doing, & Are Simply Not Skilled To Raise Bees    Their Bees Are Mis-Managed Like Agricultural Livestock, Which Adds Formidable Stress

 

FACT Many Bee-Keepers Appear To Be Unable Or Unwilling To Get Their Major Pest Problems Under Control, Such As Varroa Mites    They May Not Be Competent To Handle Their Businesses, & May Be Wholly Unsuited To Be Raising Bees

 

FACT Overall, The Main Causes Of Honeybee Losses Are Varroa Mites, Poor Queens, Weak Colonies, Weather Conditions, As Well As Bee-Keeper Incompetency    Bee-Keepers Know Full Well That These Are The Primary Problems Associated With Bee Losses, & Not Insecticides

 

FACT Neonicotinoid Insecticides Cannot Harm Bees Since Agriculture’s Best Management Practices With Neonicotinoid-Treated Seeds, Which Is A Safe & Effective Way To Protect Crops While Also Minimizing Exposure To Bees

 

FACT When Used Properly In Agriculture, Neonicotinoid Insecticides Will Selectively & Effectively Control Insect Pests, But Are Completely Safe For Other Non-Target Organisms    They Do Not Harm Bees, & Have No Persistence Beyond The Season Of Use

 

FACT Neonicotinoid Insecticides Cannot Harm Bees Since Agriculture’s Best Management Practices Minimize Any Potential Direct Exposure To Bees, Such As Coated-Seed Treatment

 

FACT Because Agriculture’s Coated-Seeds Are Buried In The Soil, Insecticides Are Rendered Inaccessible To Bees & Other Non-Target Organisms

 

FACT This Best Management Practice Ensures That The Potential Exposure To Bees Is At Very Low Levels, Far Too Low To Cause Harmful Effects By The Agriculture Industry

 

FACT Neonicotinoid Insecticides Cannot Harm Bees Since They Systemically Penetrate Into The Plant Tissues Where They Remain Inaccessible To Bees

 

FACT Simple-Minded Bee Conspiracy Fanatжcs Mock-React To Bee Losses As If They Were The Armenian Genocide    They Regularly Hold Lunatжc Bee Die-Ins Where They Dress Up In Bee Costumes & Lie On The Ground To Be Sprayed By Mock-Insecticide, & Give Mock-Eulogies & Hold Mock-Memorials For Dead Bees

 

FACT Overall, So-Called Links & Causes Between Bee Losses & Neonicotinoid Insecticides Are Mere Myths

 

FACT There Is No Neonicotinoid Crisis

 

FACT The Myth Of Disappearing Bees Is A Political Disease That Can Only Be Eradicated With The Truth

 

 

 

SUMMARY

 

 

Bee conspiracy fanatжcs who conspire to prohibit against neonicotinoid insecticides are known to hate and despise the human race, and seek its demise. 

 

According to these fanatжcs, the best way to speed up the demise of the human race is to attack the one thing that helps sustain and enhance human populations    our food supply. 

 

According to these fanatжcs, if you rid the planet of neonicotinoid insecticides, the desired result will be lower food crop production since uncontrolled damaging pests will reduce crop yields. 

 

This, in turn, will lead to hunger, starvation, and ultimately death.  Prohibition neonicotinoid insecticides will lead to the demise of the human race ! 

 

Observers accuse bee conspiracy fanatжcs of depraved indifference and plotting genocide.

SUMMARY

 

 

Listening to Nigel Raine is WRONG ! 

 

Raine is the neonicotinoid-hating and fanatжcal-activist-researcher of the University of Guelph, the left-wing pesticide-hating institution in Ontario. 

 

Raine also operates with Canadian Pollination Initiative, a fanatжcal organization that conspires to impose reckless and arbitrary prohibition against Neonicotinoid Insecticides desperately needed by the Agriculture Industry. 

 

Observers have asserted that Raine and his bee conspiracy fanatжcs have a malicious political agenda against Neonicotinoid Insecticides. 

 

They are NOT TO BE TRUSTED ! 

 

They merely exacerbate MORE MADNESS and MORE CONFUSION concerning the REAL reasons for bee losses. 

 

Overall, the REAL causes of bee losses are Varroa mites, poor queens, weak colonies, weather conditions, as well as bee-keeper incompetency    Raine and his bee conspiracy fanatжcs know full well that these are the primary problems associated with bee losses, and NOT insecticides. 

 

There is NO bee crisis caused by insecticides. 

 

But, there is definitely a crisis with the bee-keepers themselves and their incompetent mis-management practices ! 

 

Some bee-keepers have been losing their bees over and over again simply because they are incompetent and unskilled    they mis-manage their bees by treating them like agricultural livestock. 

 

Perhaps if Raine were to avoid his BOGUS attempts to link insecticides with bee health, and focus on the REAL causes of bee losses, bee losses will be reduced. 

 

Overall, Raine’s so-called links and causes between bee losses and Neonicotinoid Insecticides are mere MYTHS. 

 

There is NO neonicotinoid crisis.

WE SPEAK THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT BEE-KEEPERS FROM AN INDEPENDENT PERSPECTIVE !

 

We are the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that conspire to destroy the Green space and other industries ( NORAHG ).  As a non-profit and independent organization, we are environmentalists who are dedicated to reporting about truth-challenged pesticide-hating bee-conspiracy-fanatжcs ( HUJE ) who conspire to destroy businesses that are dependent on the use of safe and effective conventional pest control products.  We also report on the work of several highly-rated leading experts who have recognized expertise, training, and background in matters concerning pest control products, and who promote environmental realism and pesticide truths. 

 

Not surprisingly, bee-conspiracy-fanatжcs have demonstrated that they are incapable of processing overwhelming scientific evidence.  Should we trust these fanatжcs, who conveniently ignore scientific evidence, and attempt to impose their politicized-doctrines and twisted life-style choices against our society ?!?! 

 

NORAHG was the brainchild of Mr William H Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991.  Mr Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.  We dare to defy the pesticide-hating fanatжcs by exploring the whole truth from an independent perspective on The Pesticide Truths Web-Site      http://pesticidetruths.com/   If you wish to receive free reports on issues that concern you, please contact us at      force.of.de.nature@gmail.com   WILLIAM H GATHERCOLE AND NORAH G
