Europe set to vote on farm spray ban

COMMENT –

Hi Tap, 

Farmers Have been using sprays for tens of years.
They usually tell any beekeepers near their crops, when they will be spraying, so the beekeeper will keep the hives closed for the day.
I believe it is Genetically modified plants which kill the bees.
Did you notice the different smell of the rape crop for example.
The poison is in the plants all the time, not just at spray time.
Look at the rise in GMO against the bee decline.

hi tap

Scotland has wanted this stuff banned for years but like most legislation in the UK we’re powerless unless Brussels agree. We’re subservient to Europe for most things these days. From who we can kick out of the country to whether to save our honey bees.
The debate over bees has been going on for years in Scotland but nothing can be done without EU legislation and all the political parties know this but don’t tell us.

From the Glasgow Herald newspaper…

“The Scottish Wildlife Trust was backed by one of the leading researchers to have raised concerns about the pesticides, Professor Dave Goulson from the University of Stirling. “I agree that neonicotinoids should be withdrawn pending further investigations,” he said.”

Europe Set to Vote on Pesticide Ban to Save Honeybees

A proposed ban of pesticides called neonicotinoids is gathering scientific support as some experts are calling for more field studies. The goal is to reverse massive honeybee hive die-offs, which also afflict U.S. farming

Across the globe, hives of honeybees are dying off in a phenomenon known as colony collapse disorder. Among the proposed culprits are pesticides called neonicotinoids, which are supposed to be less harmful to beneficial insects and mammals than the previous generation of chemicals.
Debate over neonicotinoids has become fierce. Conservation groups and politicians in the United Kingdom and Europe have called for a ban on their use, but agricultural organizations have said that farmers will face hardship if that happens. Next Monday, European governments will take a crucial vote on whether to severely restrict or ban three neonicotinoids.
Scientists, meanwhile, are vigorously debating whether the studies on neonicotinoids and the health of honeybees and bumblebees, mostly conducted in laboratory settings, accurately reflect what is happening to bees in the field.
