Bee article

Interesting article on bees
  • Earlier this year, the Illinois Department of Agriculture allegedly stole and destroyed a beekeeper’s hives and bees after inspectors claimed the hives had foulbrood, and that the beekeeper, Terrence Ingram, had failed to dispose of the hives as instructed. However, Ingram feels he could prove his hives did not suffer from the contagious disease, and that the Department acted without due process
  • Mr. Ingram suspects the destruction of his bees may be more related to his research on Monsanto’s Roundup and his documented evidence that Roundup kills bees
  • One of the forerunning theories of colony collapse disorder (CCD) is that it’s being caused by genetically engineered crops—either as a result of the crops themselves or the pesticides and herbicides applied on them, such as Monsanto’s Roundup
  • Ingram has studied the effects of Roundup on honeybees for the past 15 years, and believes he had acquired sufficient amounts of data to show that Roundup not only causes bee die-offs, but may be the cause of CCD

To read the entire article go here:


  1. What's next? Will the CDC come into our houses if they 'suspect' we have the flu and aren't washing our hands?
    Thank you for bringing light to this. I had no idea beekeepers are now being targeted. My heart goes out to every small farmer Monsanto has destroyed. All I can do is shake my head and wonder when and where the next ax falls. Heaven help us!

  2. I read this full article earlier as well. Very scary!
