Pollinating Bees: All Life & Food On Earth Needs These Incredible Insects!

Honey Bees

Spraying of chemical fertilizers on lawns, in gardens, and on commercial/big-agribusiness crops are killing our most incredible Life Givers on this planet.

You cannot have fruits or vegetables without the pollinating Bees.

Another contributor to the alarming drop in Honey Bee colonies in the USA is the Genetically Modified Organisms [Frankenstein crops] that are grown by large Agribusinesses with American Tax Dollars, to boot!

This is a very serious mistake that our seemingly blinded EPA and Elected State and Federal Government Politicians are making by refusing to take swift action on the culprits of the killing….. and YOU, the innocent Human, are paying for it and will certainly pay for it when there is no food to eat.

The Bayer pharmaceutical company makes a commercially used Pesticide, “Clothianidin” and “imidacloprid” [both are known carcinogenic pesticides called “Neonicotinoids”] that has been directly posed as one the major causes for this steep mass-killing of our most important insects!

These pesticides disrupt/kill the central nervous system of pollinating Bees and they are also spread through the vascular tissues of plants! Thus, when YOU eat a plant that has been sprayed with chemical pesticides…. you CANNOT just wash off the exterior of a pesticide-laden fruit or vegetable and think that you are safe from this insidious poison!

Why is the USA Government placing PROFITS over SAFETY for the Environment, People, our Food Pollinators, and all life on this Earth? Whom are they really protecting? Is money and bribery worth all of the destruction that a small group of Pesticides are causing our health? What about our future?

Please check out a wonderful website that has great information on this topic: http://www.foodfirst.org

My conversation on my radio show on Saturday, October 12, 2013, with Bee Keeper, Author, and Honey Bee Activist Marina Marchese was both fun and informative. Listen to the show in the Archives section of this blog!

Also, DO NOT ever call a Pesticide company to ‘remove’ any bee colony that may have set up in your home or garden….They will simply spray them with toxic pesticides to kill them and leave YOU with the carcinogenic, DNA disrupting pesticide residue in your Garden/Yard/Office/Home!! And remember Pesticides accumulate in your body and are persistent.

Instead, contact the US Bee Removal Hotline at 888.228.1644 or visit their website http://www.brsr.org…. They safely and humanely remove and RELOCATE the bee hive so that the all-important Honey Bee colonies can continue to live and thrive.

Marina Marchese also pointed out that when homeowners are duped into spraying their homes with Pesticides and even chemical fertilizers for their lawns, they are greatly contributing to the killing of our Bees, who forage for several miles from their Hives.

Use ORGANIC fertilizers [Composting is great for this]. Marina says that Chicken manure is also a wonderful fertilizer. There are MANY Natural/Organic fertilizing companies that have recently sprung up all over the place… make it a point to find one in your local area and support such sustainable companies!

STOP the Pesticides around your home!IMG_0929

This photo was taken by me when a neighbor down the street [who lives on Wetlands, by the way] sprayed their yard last Spring.

As Marina Marchese stated in my show, this just is beyond ignorant and totally out-of-touch with the realities of how dangerous and totally destructive these pesticides are to Bees, Pets, Waterways, and PEOPLE!

Essential_Oils_700WNatural pesticides are Diatomaceous Earth, Peppermint Essential Oils and other Essential Oils like Citronella and even Lemon, Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Pine, etc. You can spray this in a large spray machine mixed with water and with a small amount of mild Castile soap around your property. Additionally, there are non-toxic/organic companies that are creating businesses for online ordering as well as servicing homeowners and businesses.

There are so many safe and effective alternatives to pesticide spraying that it is truly heartbreaking to see the Consumer get duped into paying for their own families and gardens to be poisoned.

The time is now to save our Bees, and thus, ourselves.
