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.

Keep your lawn, garden, and flowers pesticide-free and Organic. Help the Bees with your Consumer & Lifestyle choices.

Bees Dying And Our Girls and Boys Dying: All Man-Made Disasters

Where are our pollinating bees going? What is causing the die-offs?

The answer is simple and the resolution should be just as simple, but the Politics that encumber the resolutions to being enacted are unbelievably complex.

On Conscious Lifestyles on September 15, 2012, my first Guest for the day was Bee Keeper and Educator Raymond DuBois.

He told my audience about the necessity of Integrated Crop Management and how maintaining a respectful balance of the indigenous environment will bring higher, more healthy yields of food crops…. and protect the NATIVE Bees to the geographical area.

However, this is the OPPOSITE of what our American Taxes are supporting! The Bee die-offs are a result of a poor understanding of how to properly produce food without Chemical Pesticides, Chemical/petroleum based Fertilizers, and the horrendous “clear cutting” and bulldozing of the natural, indigenous environment of the agribusiness practice of “Mono Crop” production.

This practice of removing and thereby destroying the entire environment to have thousands of acres of ONE crop [such as Corn, Soy, etc.] is destroying the native Bee populations.

Add onto this diabolical practice the usage of pesticides and fertilizers that KILL our natural Bees and other pollinators, and you have massive die-offs and a critical tipping point in our Environment that is now threatening food crops and our future.

Why would the EPA ignore this obvious raping of our Eco-system? Are they NOT “The ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY?” The obvious question is Why they are not living up to the title of their very own name. Politics, pay-offs, and Lobbying by large Agribusinesses and Chemical Fertilizer/Chemical Warfare companies is a huge percentage of the answer.

This is certainly no time to be a passive tax payer. Apathy is something that the very Chemical Fertilizers and Pesticides CAUSE in the human brain, by the way! These very dangerous Chemicals kill brain cells, and cause immune dysfunction and endocrine/hormone harm.

The urgent need for the Consumer to take back the quality of food cannot be over-emphasized.

Write, email, call and be a voice to your local, elected Politicians to outright DEMAND that our taxes be funneled into Organic, Sustainable, Integrated Crop Production that respects both the Environment and our much-needed Pollinators!

Without our Bees, we have no future. No kidding here. It really is time for Action.

Check out Raymond DuBois’s Web Site www.beelove.org

Support your LOCAL, Organic, SMALL and Humane Farms. You can internet search for your local Community Supported Agriculture organizations. There are many that will deliver to your town, and even to your front door weekly! Stop supporting ALL large-scale food manufacturers and put your efforts into healing your body with natural, sustainably grown and harvested food. Food can be your medicine, and it is the only thing that can truly heal your body.

The second half of my show broadcast on Saturday, September 15th explored more detail on the horrifying topic of Vaccines in general, but the “Gardasil” vaccine that is now marketed for BOTH girls and boys ages 9-26.

The carnage this toxic vaccine has left behind is nothing short of Genocide of our next generation. The over-vaccinating of our children with extremely toxic [never proven “safe”] witches brew of Formaldehyde, Aluminum, Mercury, unknown live viruses, other dangerous adjuvants like Squalane…. is it any wonder we have ADHD, Autism, Learning disabilities and behavior issues of ALL kinds, and an array of Autoimmune dis-eases?

I highly suggest that all of my blog readers and radio audience around the world take the steps to educate themselves, and ultimately ARM themselves against the falsified, fraudulent messages that are both subliminally and overtly sent to the Consumer daily.

The buzz of FEAR tactics that are expertly utilized to gain a firm CONTROL over your behavior that makes you a PASSIVE Consumer [sucker] for these wretched vaccines is part of the Propaganda that is part of the big-Pharmaceutical/Government collusion to keep you sick, and in need of more drugs, therapy, other toxic treatments, etc.

Check out Leslie Carol Botha’s website at HolyHormones.com and learn, each day, something new about your body, and how intricately balanced it is and certainly deserves to be treated with natural, healing respect.

Killing Us Softly…. Chemical Fertilizers, Pesticides, Fungicides Are Killers Of People, Too.

My Radio Show that broadcast on Saturday, May 12th, was a lively interview with Landscape Architect Peter Alexander.

Americans have been lied to. With every misleading TV advertisement that encourages the unsuspecting Consumer to apply chemical fertilizers and chemicals onto their lawn, gardens… and then having them ultimately wind up in your drinking water and the air you breathe…. poisoning both you and your pets [and all life on Earth]… the scope of the damage this has to the immune and nervous system to every living being on Earth is beyond what most of us can comprehend.

Your life literally depends upon how much you know, and how motivated you are to take action to save the circle of life that is crucial to your wellbeing.

There is nothing better and certainly nothing more healing than God’s Garden. I love sitting outside, eating Al Fresco, enjoying the butterflies visiting each flower and listening to the birds chirp and a rambling brook…. totally soothing to my senses and reminds me of this AWESOME gift of Life.

One of the world’s worst Pesticides that kills Aquatic life, poisons people, kills our pollinating Bees, causes birth defects and other horrible dis-eases… is produced by possibly the most evil conglomerate on Earth: Monsanto.

Why and How this company has been able to undermine every nook and cranny of the EPA, USDA, Congress, and even local municipalities is inexcusable. Their toxic Genetically Modified Organisms [GMO’s], pesticides, herbicides, dangerous brands like “Round Up” and other killers are nothing short of Satanic. They kill and destroy.

Nothing is more concerning for the future of our Environment than these chemical weapons of mass destruction that have been re-packaged into Consumer and Agricultural products.

How to have a Natural Garden: Use Compost; make your own Compost with kitchen scraps; hire a Natural Gardener that uses Organic Gardening Techniques; add your firewood ash to compost and spread onto garden, lawn, etc…. and make sure you include your coffee grinds, too!

Borax is a natural way to rid your property and home of pests. Also, if you have Carpenter Ants, use Borax mixed with Southern ‘Grits’ that they tend to like to eat, but will die once it expands when they eat it.

Mice and other Vermin hate the smell of Peppermint. Get a spray bottle, add some cheap Vodka, water and the Essential Oil of Peppermint. Spray around perimeter of home and even use inside your home as a natural cleaning spray! You will love it.

Diatomaceous Earth is a great way to keep pests away but is safe for pets and people and also for good insects like Bees, Butterflies, and mammals like Birds and Squirrels.


You can have a beautiful, no maintenance landscape if you think full-circle and insist upon indigenous plants, trees, grasses, flowers that will require very little maintenance and have a natural immunity to any pestilence as they have had millions of years to evolve, unlike “imported” or non-regional plant species.

If you love to Garden and are growing your own produce, you might be interested in the “Companion Planting” practice for natural pest control.

Here are some helpful suggestions:

Protect your Carrots by planting them with Leeks to repel both Carrot and Onion Flies.

Plant Radishes and Kohlrabi with Lettuce to repel Earth Flies that don’t like the smell of Lettuce.

God Aphids? Plant Nasturiums around Broccoli and bunches of Chives among Sunflowers and tomatoes to discourage infestations.

Ladybugs= God’s gift to Gardeners! A natural enemy to Aphids.

Asparagus and Tomatoes complement one another. Place one row of Asparagus between 2 rows of tomato plants.

Daffodils repel mice.

Plant Yarrow as a Boarder for an herb garden as it encourages the growth of essential oils in herbs.

Onions repel Rabbits and can be inter-planted with Peas, Beans, Lettuce and Cabbage.

Cool. You can have the most healthy life and bring to life all of the many beneficial insects, mammals and herbs around you NATURALLY.

Autumn leaves are like pure Gold for your Garden and entire landscape! Why on earth some Municipalities pay big money to have them shipped out of town is ludicrous.

These leaves nourish the tree’s roots in the Winter and also act as a magnificent mulch for your garden, vegetables, and lawn as it greatly enriches the minerals within the soil.

So, if you are in a part of the world where the gorgeous Autumn leaves fall, DO NOT allow a polluting “leaf blower” to blow them into plastic bags and away from your landscape!

Instead, you can lay them out on the lawn and mow over them, and combine them with Organic compost and nourish your shrubs, trees, gardens, lawn… every aspect of the perfect circle that God gave to us is a true bounty of life.

OR, if you wish, let the leaves fall under the tree and leave it be. Your tree will be stronger throughout the Winter storms as it is literally fed at its roots with the incredible Autumn leaves it blessed you with.

So exciting to be supernatural!

Sustainable, Energy Saving Landscapes

My conversation this week with Landscape Architect, Sue Reed, shed some light on how to create aesthetically beautiful, energy saving gardens, yards, parks, and other spaces that need to be reclaimed for sustainable living.

The remarkable journey this environmentally conscious design takes us on is one where you realize that your personal landscape choices CAN make a huge difference in making the world “Green” rather than toxic.


1.) Choose Native Plants. This creates a place for butterflies, bees, and birds and other wildlife to live and you will be energy-wise since you won’t need to water your garden/yard so much.
2.) Clover is a natural lawn cover that does not need to be mowed, ever. It also doesn’t need extra watering.
3.) Lighting should be LED and should be on a motion detector. Light pollution is a huge environmental issue and kills millions of migrating birds every year. A green or blue light is better than a yellow light, since migrating birds are not attracted to these colors in landscape/building/garden lighting. Also, use solar lighting where applicable.
4.)Get Electric Lawn Mowers/Leaf Blowers/Weeders, etc. This is a very QUIET option and it is certainly significantly more friendly to our ecology. America alone uses over 1 Billion gallons of gasoline PER YEAR on mowing lawns.

These are just a few tips that Sue Reed gave to the Conscious Lifestyles listeners.


Sue’s book, “Energy-Wise Landscape Design” is available now online and at any book retailer.

Check out Sue’s blog, Energy Wise Landscape and start your own Oasis that is naturally alive, beautiful, honorable, clean, environmentally sensitive, and a place to gather and truly celebrate life.
