A World Without Bees

Bee Pollinating Flower

A world without bees is unimaginable! Nearly one-third of U.S. crops – including many vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds – depend on bees for pollination. But despite the vital role that bees play, the Environmental Protection Agency continues to approve pesticides that are linked to a bee die-off of historic proportions. This last year, one-third of our honeybee colonies died or disappeared. This massive die-off of these vital pollinators threatens to unravel agricultural production across the country. Yet the Environmental Protection Agency sided with Dow AgroSciences to approve a new pesticide, called sulfoxaflor, that is highly toxic to bees. And now the EPA is considering expanding the number of crops this pesticide can be sprayed on to include corn, alfalfa, oats, and several other significant and widely grown crops.

Hello,

My name is Derek Condit, I'm an organic beekeeper from WA state. We've come across a substance that could prove to "Save the Bees" from the harmful EMF/WiFi signals that have been proven to harm the bee populations across the globe, it's called Shungite.

Since the introduction of Shungite to our beehives, we've experienced zero CCD losses (Colony Collapse Disorder), no pests, no disease and no sickness of any kind.

Shungite is a natural mineral made of 98% carbon. It's found in Karelia, Russia near a small settlement called Shunga. It's atoms form fullerenes which are made of 60 carbon atoms, resembling a soccer ball at the molecular scale. Shungite has been shown to attenuate toxins and radiation in it's environment by reversing the electromagnetic fields to a biocompatible rotation. Once relieved of these harmful burdens, bees can once again function at their natural peak efficiency.

We've been using Shungite to attenuate harmful EMF & Wifi signals near our beehives to produce and maintain disease-free honey bees!

In 1991, Science magazine named fullerenes “molecule of the year,” calling them “the discovery most likely to shape the course of scientific research in the years ahead.”

Shungite has been used in medical treatment since the early 18th century. Peter the Great set up Russia's first spa in Karelia to make use of the water purifying properties of shungite, which he had himself experienced. He also instigated its use in providing purified water for the Russian army. The antibacterial properties of shungite have been confirmed by modern testing.

Russian doctors & scientist are having great success treating patients before and after surgery within rooms built from Shungite, for a variety of disorders & ailments. These Shungite rooms greatly speed the recovery and rehabilitation time patients experience.​ Russian & Ukrainian research has also shows that fullerene-rich Shungite attenuates numerous forms of negative energy. We're using Shungite in similar ways to enhance the health & overall well being of our bees.

Our hope is to share our amazing findings with other beekeepers so we can "Save the Bees Together".

Beelieve in a better tomorrow!

Ever since the hurricane I have been finding dead bees all over my porch, at least 50 a day, all dead, some in my pool also, but the ones I find in my pool are usually alive, what could be causing this? I don't use pesticides, and I don't have my lawn sprayed, my neighbors do but they didn't in a few months. My screen came down during the storm and the repair people are coming out next week, that is how I am finding them. I am not stepping on them since I walk by the pool barefoot so I would definitely know if I did. What can be causing this and what if anything can I do to prevent it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

BeeSpotter

BeeSpotter is a partnership between citizen-scientists and the professional science community designed to educate the public about pollinators by engaging them in a data collection effort of importance to the nation. It is a web-based portal at the University of Illinois for learning about honey bees and bumble bees and for contributing data to a nationwide effort to baseline information on population status of these insects.

BeeSpotter founder May Berenbaum has come under fire recently for "keeping the best bug in a Tupperware under her bed."

Upon hearing the news of her outing, she replied "Humbug." At least now we have a name for this mysterious hidden bug!

Thanks to all the St. Louis Bee Brigade #BeeBlitz participants at Forest Park Forever last weekend! Your spottings have been rolling in, and we've been enjoying IDing them!

What's all the buzz about? Over the weekend, more than 60 members of the public came out to Forest Park to help with a photographic survey of bees. The event was the first STL BeeBlitz, and was organized by Biology Professor Nicole Miller-Struttmann, with help from the St. Louis Zoo, Forest Park Forever, Saint Louis University, Academy of Science – St. Louis, BeeSpotter and the STL Bee Brigade. #PollinatorWeek http://bit.ly/2sSzPC5

Here's a couple of paragraphs from a fascinating book, "Dr. Jamoke's Little Book of Hitherto Uncompiled Facts and Curiosities about Bees":

"Honey bees are excellent pollinators, but since they evolved in Europe, they aren’t especially adept at pollinating many North American food crops. Pumpkins, cherries, blueberries, and cranberries are all better pollinated by native bees.

"Three-quarters of the fruits, nuts, and vegetables in North America are pollinated by bees. Corn is not one of them. Corn is pollinated by the wind, which is why planting just one row of corn won’t lead to much of a crop."

This book is only 8 bucks at Amazon. It definitely has more than 8 bucks'-worth of stuff not even beekeepers know. It's like a little course in history, mythology, religion, biology, botany, agriculture, chemistry, anatomy, climatology, geography, paleontology, ethnicity, ecology, entomology, economics, psychology, sociology, homeopathy, and a wee-bit about beekeeping.

Thanks to everyone who went out and participated in the #BeeBlitz today! We had beautiful weather today in the Champaign-Urbana area for our expeditions to the University of Illinois Pollinatarium and Urbana Park District's #MeadowbrookPark, and hope you did in your area as well!

Don't forget to upload your spottings when you get a chance. If you don't get to it today, don't worry -- you can specify the date the photos were taken when you upload your spottings.

You can submit those spottings at:
