Tens of millions of Florida bees mysteriously drop dead in one day, beekeepers blame pesticides

(NaturalNews) Oct 5, 2011  Authorities have already ruled out disease, including the infamous “Colony Collapse Disorder” (CCD), as the cause of a recent honeybee holocaust that took place in Brevard County, Florida. The UK’s Daily Mail reports that up to 12 million bees from roughly 800 apiaries in the area all dropped dead at roughly the same time around September 26 — and local beekeepers say pesticides are likely to blame.

CCD is the term often used to describe the inexplicable mass die-off of honeybees around the world, which typically involves honeybees leaving their hives and, for whatever reason, never finding their way back home. Mass die-offs associated with CCD often occur at seemingly random locations around the world, and typically involve a gradual process of disappearance and eventual colony collapse — and the dead bees are typically nowhere to be found.

But the recent Florida event involved hundreds of colonies from 30 different sites in a one-and-a-half mile radius literally dropping dead all at the same time and leaving their carcasses behind, which is why authorities have dismissed CCD as the cause. Based on the appearance of the dead bees, as well as the synchronous timing of their deaths, pesticide sprayings appear to be the culprit in this case.

  1. Here is the original story from my local paper . its millions not 10s of millions , I doubt the pesticides they are spraying for mosquitoes would kill a whole colony , the mosquito spraying doesn’t even kill mosquitoes let alone wipe out a more then a million bees at once . this is just a few miles north of where i am and im trying to find out what the cause was , ill keep you posted if I find anything , http://www.tcpalm.com/news/2011/sep/29/state-officials-investigating-how-millions-of-in/
