Between Pesticides and GMO Roundup Ready crops are bees are dying rapidly.

Today's sad news that a record 50% of the honey bee population in the United States have been killed.

Thanks for posting this link. I just watched the video and am reminded once again how big money agri-business influences Washington! I just watched the bees here for the first time this year and saw many swarming my plum tree and saw just a few on the peach a few days later. I leave a ground cover type weed in the early spring because I see the bees on it too and it blooms before anything here on the farm.

We are need to be very concerned about these herbicides and GMO crops.

Interesting story. Sometimes media attention will put pressure on someone to take action so I hope that's the case and they get it stopped before it's too late.

Agree Gld, it's probably also contributed by the GMO roundup ready stuff, btw there may be a bill that changes the Missouri Constitution that basically says that "modern" farming techniques cannot be outlawed here, and that basically if you are NOT using "modern" seeds or non-heirloom you could be breaking the law. It's called the Monsanto Protection Law of Missouri and if it goes to a vote of the people we will have to spread the word about it.
