It’s time to take action to protect our dying bees!

Immediately halt the use of Nerve-agent pesticides (neonicotinoids) which are being blamed around the world for the sharp decline in bee numbers.

The current state of the bee population

Joe King, orchard owner and President of Somerton & District Beekeepers’ Association writes about the current state of the bee population.

“Last year bee colonies built up very quickly because of the lovely March weather and developed a real urge to swarm. Despite the efforts of beekeepers to limit them swarms were abundant.

Queen bees have to mate on the wing, and unfertilised eggs produce male bees – drones – who do no work, leaving it all to their sisters the worker bees. The wet weather last year made mating very difficult so there was an abundance of drones and a dearth of workers. Without workers many colonies died.

In July (July!) beekeepers were advised to feed their colonies to stop them starving, but many wild bees died. As a consequence the bee population went into the winter in poor condition, so keep your fingers crossed for them this year!”

Meanwhile we are keeping an eye on the neo-nicotinoid debate, shaping up interestingly with a march on parliament on 26 April at 11.00 a.m. by beekeepers and Friends of the Earth, RSPB etc. The subject is complex on both sides and we don’t pretend to know the answers, but we hope someone works them out soon.

    I think geoengineering, weather modification, solar radiation management or chemtrails are largely to blame (along with radiowave/microwave frequency radiation from mobile phone masts, phones, WIFI etc….just look at the studies done where a DECT phone is placed in a hive and most of the bees fail to return compared to the hive without, watch “Resonance Beings of Frequency” on Military jets are flying over dumping this chemical cocktail on a daily basis every day and night, even here in the UK. Officially this is denied as conspiracy, it is only when you look beyond the official version of the truth, join the dots together and see the bigger picture of world domination by elite groups to form “The New World Order” that you cannot deny the reality of this. Media is largely owned and controlled, so do internet searches and look at, just look at the sky and listen to the numerous military jets leaving huge white persistant contrails that spread out over the sunny blue sky to join together forming thick highly reflective cloud cover, which is so reflective if you keep looking you can often look directly at the sun with just your eyes with no protection, this is why it is now May and the weather is cold and overcast. This chemical cocktail has been found to contain aluminium oxide, strontium, barium, viruses, mercury, ethylene dibromide and more, it damages all life including insects and the microscopic life in the soil so that plants cannot grow. Monsanto are producing aluminium resistant seeds and self pollinating plants, this is all part of controlling the food supply, the weather (hurricanes, earthquakes, weird weather events etc…with HAARP using these conductive particles), population reduction and world domination, it’s written on the Georgia Guidestones. Watch “What in the world are they spraying” and “Why in the world are they spraying” on YouTube. I wish I was wrong, mistaken, but I am not and we are facing this together, I mean who ever thought that one day there would be no bees, bats, insects etc… and people would be being poisoned in secret by the people they look to for protection
