CATCH THE BUZZ - Corn planting & impact on bees. Corn Planting Drift is Killing Honey Bees. You Can Help. Here’s How. The number of beekills this spring due to poisoning by pesticides has skyrocketed. In Ohio just this spring we have seen more beekills than I can remember total in the past 25 years combined. Reports from many, many states have been coming into this office in the past couple of weeks. At first they seemed isolated and unsupported. Beekeepers are wary of reporting incidents, and seldom sure of how to proceed or what to do.  114k v. 4 17 Jan 2013, 10:19 Gene Wasik

Bottom line: CCD is a significant challenge facing the honey industry and for some individual producers, the impact is devastating. However, contrary to popular opinion, while hives collapse, the industry remains largely intact, food production does not seem to be threatened and advanced farming practices do not appear to play a significant role as the culprit. Perhaps there is a bit of overreaction to the issue.  17 Jan 2013, 10:19 Gene Wasik
