Jim Burritt, University of Wisconsin-Stout. The research, with student co-authors Anna Winfield, of Bloomer, and Jake Hildebrand, of Menomonie, was published Dec. 21 in PLOS One, a peer-reviewed, open-access, online publication for science and medicine research. The study, “Sepsis and Hemocyte Loss in Honey Bees,” can be found online.

Unfortunately, uses of toxic pesticides are having far-reaching impacts on a wide range of environments – everything from urban parks, to croplands, to beeyards and aquatic ecosystems. Beekeepers, farmers, and consumers all need a hetitlehier environment for bees! Honey bees and native pollinators are essential to our food supply and help to provide one in every three bites of food we eat

Corn seed treatment insecticides pose risks to honey bees, yield benefits elusive

Corn seed treatment insecticides pose risks to honey bees, yield benefits elusive
Nearly every foraging honey bee in the state of Indiana will encounter neonicotinoids during corn planting season, and the common seed treatments produced no improvement in crop yield, according to a Purdue University study.
Neonicotinoids, including clothianidin and thiamethoxam, are a class of insecticide commonly applied as a coating to corn and soybean seeds to protect them from early-season pests. Since the coatings are sticky, a talc or graphite powder is added to vacuum systems in planters to keep the seeds from clumping. Powder exhausted from the planter contains neonicotinoids.

 

Wild bees and other pollinators are in decline
May

2017

Wild bees and other pollinators are in decline, threatening pollination of crops and wildflowers. Dave Goulson will talk about the reasons for these declines, and focus particularly on pesticides. Modern farming has become dependent on heavy pesticide use, and this is highly likely to be contributing significantly to declines of bees.
Dave will propose ways forward for food production: how do we feed ourselves without wiping out bees and other wildlife ?; does Brexit offer an opportunity ?

Chile is trying to save its bee population damaged by fires
Chile’s worst wildfires in its modern history, which are ravaging wide swaths of the country’s central-south regions, have claimed another silent but essential victim of human life: Bees.
For the past few weeks, bees and other pollinators have faced increasing risks to their survival, threatening foods such as apples, blueberries and coffee.
It is estimated at least 9,000 hives have been destroyed around the country, local media reported.

 

For the first time, Varroa mites have been recorded hopping onto honey bees from flowers
Dec

2016

For the first time, Varroa mites have been recorded hopping onto honey bees from flowers, and doing so with surprising agility, according to a study published in the journal PLOS ONE.
Researchers from Cornell University recorded the footage. It matters because Varroa mites are the scourge of honey bee populations worldwide, infesting managed and wild colonies alike. The tiny parasites feed on bee adults and larvae, making the fliers more prone to infections and passing onto them illnesses such as deformed wing virus.

Halfway through a video of a speech by the biologist Professor Dave Goulson there is an abrupt loss of sound. Goulson, who has devoted his working life to highlighting the catastrophic decline of bees, is giving a talk to hundreds gathered at the National Honey Show in 2015. Strangely, his words are silenced for 20 seconds of the video uploaded by the show to YouTube, precisely when he discusses the impact on bees of the most widely used insecticides in the world – neonicotinoids. ...

Bumblebees coax pollen from flowers with a secret 'knock'
When it comes to unlocking the pollen from certain types of flowers, only a secret buzz will work — a buzz that bumblebees know how to perform. Not even honeybees, the most famous of pollinators, know how to crack the code.
Called buzz pollination, the strategy is utilized by some 20,000 flowering plant species including many agricultural crops we know and love like tomatoes, blueberries, potatoes and cranberries to name just a few. The plants make the bees work extra hard for a payoff of pollen.

Bees are in trouble. Around the world many types of bee are in decline, and some species have gone extinct. These declines are driven by multiple factors including loss of wildflowers from the countryside, outbreaks of disease, and exposure to the many pesticides used in modern farming. Without bees we would have no strawberries, tomatoes, chili peppers, blueberries or cucumbers, to name just a few. We need to take action to help them
