Yesterday, 15th February 2011, BBC4 showed a programme titled Who Killed the Honey Bee? For the next seven days it will also be available on iPlayer.
Well after watching it I expect you’ll be shocked: From factory farming, creating a super race of bee through selection, a man from DEFRA who’s only comment is the weather, a mass export market of bees from Australia to America…
If I had a rubber brick I would have thrown it at the TV: wake up world!
A little while ago I wrote a feature referencing beekeeping practices. It might be a while before we can influence the agrochemical industry, however our choice of beekeeping methodology we can make to day. Please do view our new white paper section, emails welcomed.
Very best regards, David
