- May 22, 2014Bill, you better check that, Canada had a huge die off last year, not in winter during the summer.
And Neonics are insecticides not fungicides.

This is a link to the ultra-left wing Mother Jones report. Nothing on Mother Jones is remotely reliable in terms of real scientific reporting.Two years ago this very same organization was blaming CCD on nicotine-based fungicides (neonicotinoids). They still blamed CCD on these fungicides, even though there are places in this world where CCD is not a problem (Canada), yet these fungicides are commonly used. Mother Jones continued to place the blame for CCD on these fungicides, even though they've been banned in countries where CCD continues to be a problem (France, Germany).
As an amateur beekeeper who is just as concerned about CCD as everyone else, I'm not about to make any conclusions on anything published by Mother Jones.
