Common Pesticide Implicated Bee Colony Collapse Disorder By Katherine Harmon— Why are we killing ourselves ?

By Katherine Harmon is an associate editor for Scientific American Via

Honeybee colonies have been mysteriously dying off all over the globe, leaving scientists scratching their heads-and important crops languishing in the fields unpollinated. Viruses, mites, pesticides and poor food choices have been fingered as potential culprits. And three new studies in the past week are taking aim at one of the most common types of agricultural insecticides.
Farmers worldwide have been using one popular neonicotinoid, imidacloprid, for about a decade to keep harmful insects off their cotton, corn, grains, potatoes, rice, vegetables and other crops. Like other neonicotinoids it targets the nervous system of insects, resulting in paralysis and death. Because honeybees (Apis mellifera) are insects, too, biologists have long suspected neonicotinoids as a possible force in colony collapse disorder.
Although most residue levels have not been found to kill bees on contact, the chemicals could conceivably do harm later on in these important pollinators-or their offspring-that ingest it either through nectar from sprayed crops or through the corn syrup that beekeepers feed to their bees; that syrup is made from insecticide-treated corn.
Researchers have now found that repeated low-dose exposures are perfectly capable of gradually killing of whole hives of bees. In fact, 94 percent of hives whose bees had been fed the pesticide died off entirely within less than six months, according to a new paper that will be in the June issue of Bulletin of Insectology.
Starting in the summer of 2010, Chensheng Lu, an associate professor of environmental exposure biology at Harvard School of Public Health, along with members of the Worcester County Beekeepers Association in Massachusetts, monitored 20 brand new hives. The hives were kept in four separate clusters that were at least 12 kilometers apart, ensuring the bees from each cluster would not mingle. In each cluster of hives, four hives were fed standard, commercial high-fructose corn syrup (which many honeybee keepers would feed their bees) laced with trace amounts of imidacloprid (comparable to concentrations that have been found in the environment) and one control hive was given only the high-fructose corn syrup.

The feeding began July 1, and the imidacloprid dosing was stopped in the experimental hives at the end of September (after which all bees were fed a standard high-fructose corn syrup and granular sucrose diet). By mid-December, all of the hives had gone into over-wintering mode and were still alive. But some of the pesticide-fed hives were showing signs of weakening; scatterings of dead bees were found on the snow in front of these faltering hives.
The first experimental hive was found to be empty of bees, signaling collapse, on December 31, 2010. And by Feb. 24, 2011, all but one imidacloprid-treated hive had any surviving bees. “Dead hives were remarkably empty except for stores of food and some pollen left on the frames,” the study authors noted. One of the control hives had fallen, the researchers noted, but it showed signs of having been infected with dysentery. The researchers did not find signs that any of the dead hives had been overtaken by the Nosema virus or Varroa mites, both of which have been suspected in the past of contributing to colony collapse disorder. This finding suggests that in some cases, insecticide alone might be able to bring down a hive.
Two other teams of researchers, based in France and the U.K., respectively, also found that hives fed with the insecticide failed to prosper. The French group reported that honeybees exposed to a similar neonicotinoid insecticide (thiamethoxam) had a harder time finding their way back to the hive, weakening the colony, possibly making it more prone to collapse. And the U.K. group fed trace amounts of the insecticide to bumble bees, whose populations have also been contracting. They found that it made the bumble bees less able to produce queens that could start new hives. Both of their papers were published in the March 30 issue of Science.
Commenting in the New York Times, an ecotoxicologist from Bayer CropScience, a company that makes imidacloprid, took issue with the French study, arguing that the bees were fed an unrealistically high does of insecticide. The authors of the paper noted, however, that it was a distinctly sublethal dose. The authors of the Harvard-based paper tried a variety of doses (ranging from 20 micrograms of insecticide per kilogram of corn syrup to 200 micrograms), all of which led to colony deaths. “Our experiment included pesticide amounts below what is normally present in the environment,” Lu said in a prepared statement. “It apparently doesn’t take much of the pesticide to affect the bees.”
Lu and his colleagues are unsure why the insecticide might have resulted in such a delayed colony death, especially as many of the bees that would have fed on the pesticide-infused syrup would have already been replaced by a new generation by the wintertime. They hypothesize that the low levels of the toxin might have affected larval growth and led to weaker adults.
More work will need to be done to determine how these small doses of insecticide might be killing off bee colonies-and how it might be contributing to other observed plagues, such as mites and viruses, and even parasites that seem to put honeybees into a zombie-like state, as a report earlier this year indicated.
But work will need to be swift. At least a third of U.S. honeybee colonies have died out in the past six years. “The significance of bees to agricultural cannot be understated,” Lu said. They pollinate about one third of U.S. crop species, including almonds, apples, grapes, soybeans, cotton, and others, the failure of which could lead not only to food shortages, but also to large economic hits for farmers-and consumers.

John Wheeler: the Man that helped create the Vietnam Memorial and much more.Industrial Complex – Is it all True Series #176

John served three US Presidents and served his country very well. His life ended in a garbage dump, killed by blunt force trauma. About 48 hours before his death, he was wandering around a parking garage, confused and in a daze. To this day there are few leads to the killer according to the local police.

Why would someone want to kill this man? He knew something very big and very dangerous. First it is important to know that Wheeler wrote a manual on the effectiveness of biological and chemical weapons, and he was strongly against using either.

He probably knew the following: our military had moved 60+ tons of one of the most deadly poisonous gases in the world, Phosgene. It was brought from Iraq to a weapons arsenal in central Arkansas. If you are exposed to Phosgene it causes your respiratory system to explode. And the Russians probably also knew we had this big cache of Phosgene. So the military, knowing the Russians were in the know, needed to dispose of the deadly gas very quickly, so they pumped it deep underground, which probably caused 500 minor earthquakes.

Phosgene is a substance that cannot be made anymore because of a worldwide weapon treaty. There was also another malfunction in the transport of this gas in and around central Arkansas. One of the tanker aircrafts carrying the gas accidentally released some in the air, probably killing those now famous 4000+ redwing blackbirds. They died of internal lung trauma. A second accident occurred as they (military) flew over the Arkansas River and there was another mishandled release killing 100,000 fish.

John Wheeler was going to tell the US and the world about what was going on and the extreme dangers of Phosgene gas. It looks like John Wheeler paid the ultimate price for being an American hero. Sadly few people know this amazing story, of this man’s desire to do the right thing. I salute you John Wheeler. John, as I mentioned in the title, also helped create the famous War Memorial honoring the Vietnam vets in Washington DC.

Sleep-tight, just sleep tight.


Mass Bird/Fish Kills — are they Canaries in our Human Mine. Mercola Speaks:

Dr. Mercola’s Comments:

Unless you’ve been living beneath a rock for the past month or so, you couldn’t have missed the bizarre reports of birds falling from the sky and dead fish littering shores in various parts of the world, mainly in the US, but also in Canada, Sweden, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Japan, and other areas.

This interactive Google map contains 30 reports, with the earliest reports starting around the last week of December. At the time of this writing, the map had not been updated since January 5, which means there were about 30 or so reported mass die-offs worldwide within a span of about just over one week.

I make this point because authorities have been quick to reassure us all that mass die offs are “normal,” pointing out the fact that there are scores of mass deaths of various species each and every year.

While this is true, after spending some time reviewing the data on previous mass die-offs, I can’t help but scratch my head and wonder why, if this is normal, the data doesn’t support their current conclusions.

In fact, after looking at the US data for 2010 and 2009, I don’t see how current events fit comfortably within the “normal” parameters.

Personally, I believe these birds and fish are the proverbial canaries in the coal mine, and whatever is going on, whether natural or induced by man, they appear to be an indication of something or some things going awry.

Are Mass Die-Offs of Animals Normal?

Well, yes and no.

It’s easy to see how the authorities can so easily dismiss these events pointing to the fact that they’ve got scores of reports of similar events each and every month of the year.

But not so fast.

If you’re going to hinge your conclusions on the data available, then look at that data and see if there are similar patterns ASIDE FROM the fact that animals “can and do die en masse” at times, which they do. I asked myself three questions, and I’ll review each of them below.

The first question is, how common is it for hundreds or even thousands of birds to fall from the sky and not be found to have died from either poisoning or some form of viral or bacterial infection?

The answer to that is this: In the past two years that has never happened, based on the data from the USGS National Wildlife Health Center.

Three thousand Purple Gallinule and American Coots died between February and April of last year—from Avian cholera. Not from some mysterious mid-air collision with nothing, causing them to plummet to their deaths.

Six hundred snow geese also perished between February and March last year, due to lead poisoning. Some 200 robins, starlings and doves also died from suspected toxicosis.

Mass bird starvations have also occurred, but that’s clearly not what we’re looking at presently.

Going through the USGS’ lists of each quarter for 2009 and 2010, looking for a pattern of what could be considered normal (at least in recent years), it seems quite clear that the die-offs that have occurred in the past few weeks are not quite as normal as they’re trying to make them out to be…

Botulism appears to be a primary culprit when it comes to mass die-offs of birds and bats, but so far, none of the current cases have been linked to either poisoning or infection.

So, although mass die-offs are indeed normal, mass die-offs without a toxic, viral or bacterial cause are NOT normal.

So, until or unless a toxic or infectious cause is ascertained, it seems remarkably irresponsible to dismiss these events off-hand as something that is “within the norm.” And then there’s the frequency of events.

Why are There So Many More Reports All of a Sudden?

That’s the second question.

Going back to that Google map, it shows a total of 15 reported events in the US within just eight days, starting with 83,000 dead fish washing up along the Arkansas River on December 29, followed by 5,000 blackbirds falling out of the sky in Beebe, Arkansas around 11.30 pm on New Year’s eve, up to January 5, which is when the map was last updated.

Compare that to the USGS records of previous events and you will find that for the first two quarters of 2010 (the last two quarters are not posted), there were a total of 45 reports for the first quarter (January through April), and a total of 29 reports for the second quarter (April through June).

That means that during the first quarter of 2010, the USGS National Wildlife Health Center received an average of about 3.5 reports of mass die-offs per week. And during the second quarter of 2010, the average was just over 2 reports per week.

The year prior, in 2009, they had a massive die-off of ducks – 1,537 of them – but again, the cause was identifiable as parasites, not flying into electrical wires or scared to death by fireworks. They also had 1,440 various birds, including geese, die in the summer of 2009 in Minnesota. But again, there was a cause: viral infections. Twenty thousand ducks died of botulism in Idaho that same summer.

But still, if you average the number of total reports turned in to the USGF each quarter of 2009, the reports averaged from 1 to 4 a week.

So once again, 15 mass deaths in one week is a bit out of the ordinary—in fact, the first week of January has between five to seven times more reports than the average week during the past year.

Is that due to increased use of technology? Are we just noticing these events because we’re more connected and news spreads faster?

Many people have proposed that as the explanation, but I’m not convinced. Didn’t people have access to smart phones and computers last year? Or the year before?

Are Animals Dying in Greater Numbers than Normal?

The third “out-of-the-proposed-norm” of animal mass-deaths is the much larger than normal number of animals dying, starting with 83,000 fish and 5,000 birds in Arkansas.

Again, going through the USGS records, these are actually extraordinarily large numbers.

Reported mass deaths are typically in the dozens for birds, and large fish deaths appear to be rather uncommon in general.

Mass deaths of sea life now include:

2 MILLION fish in the Chesapeake Bay
Between 10,000 and 20,000 gizzard shad in Lake Meredith, Texas
20 TONS of carp and red tilapia in Vietnam
100 TONS of fish (mostly sardines) in Brazil
40,000 crabs in the UK
At least in the US, the records from the USGS simply do not support the explanation that fish typically die in such great numbers.

Do some of these events have reasonable explanations?


Toxic algae bloom was found to be the culprit in the case of Lake Meredith, and the Vietnamese event was determined to be due a combination of water pollution and overcrowded fish pens, and the crabs may indeed have succumbed to cold water stress.

However, something just doesn’t feel right about shrugging all of these events off as ‘nothing out of the ordinary.’ I certainly believe they all merit thorough and rigorous investigation.

Case Solved: Birds Died from Blunt Trauma!

At first I couldn’t believe I was reading what I was reading. I thought, surely I must have misunderstood something. But no, it appears as though the official explanation to the Arkansas bird deaths is simply this: they died from blunt-force trauma. Tests for poisoning were negative. Case closed.

The official stance is that this year’s fireworks sent the birds into a never-before-heard-of panic, causing them to fly into cars, homes, and possibly straight into the ground. What this explanation ignores, however, is the fact that people started reporting the birds littering the streets around 11.30 pm, and on New Year’s Eve fireworks typically do not begin until the strike of midnight. It also ignores the fact that this does not appear to have happened before, even though the US celebrates both New Year’s and Independence Day with massive fireworks displays across the nation every year.

Perhaps an even more bizarre explanation is that of the Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana event, where about 500 red-winged blackbirds and starlings are thought to have suddenly been unable to navigate around a power line due to high winds… Personally, I believe the odds of 500 birds colliding with a power line are fairly slim.

Likewise, it seems dubious that one trucker would cause the death of nearly 100 birds in Falkoping, Sweden.

Testing has yet to identify any toxic or infectious causes to any of these bird deaths.

I certainly understand our officials’ needs to quench the fear that these events are in any way related. It could cause a panic. But quite frankly, the explanations offered are equally panic-inducing, simply because they do not appear to be based on any genuine understanding or scientific investigation.

Most Recent Events

It will be interesting to see what the explanations will be for some of the latest events, such as the January 14 mass death of fish reported in the Iranian sector of the Caspian Sea. According to the Iranian Gulistan Province’s Nature Conservation Department Deputy Head Mohsen Jafarnejad, analysis of the dead fish is underway.

The article also states that, “Scientists suggest that the causes of the recent events may be a global disaster or testing of biological weapons.”

Some 80 pigeons also died at a farm near Quebec City in Canada, the Toronto Sun reported on January 7. The landowner claims that wildlife officials told him not to speak to the media—a piece of advice he promptly ignored. “There’s something going on,” the landowner is quoted as saying. “This is not normal.”

One of the few cases that seem to have a plausible cause of death is the case of 200 dead cows found in a field in the Town of Stockton on January 15. According to the NY Daily News, the owner suspects the cows may have succumbed to IBR/BVD, an acute, contagious cattle virus. An investigation is currently underway.

Again, I want to emphasize that I do not claim to have any of the answers, but I believe that in order to get to the answers we need to ask the right questions, and based on the questions I asked myself while writing this piece, the conventional answers are insufficient.

It’s interesting to note that birds are quite vulnerable to chemical pollution and poisoning from natural toxins. If these animals are indeed the canaries, then we need to investigate these events properly and thoroughly, and not pretend it’s all business as usual. I believe the data suggests these events are not as normal as they would like us all to believe, and all of these events certainly warrant further investigation.
