Did anyone else see the report on BBC Breakfast this a.m. on bumble bees catching diseases from honey bees. Apparently the answer is for beekeepers to practise integrated pest management! It reminds me of the French vine grower who is currently suffering criminal prosecution for refusing to use pesticides on his vines: http://www.decanter.com/news/wine-news/584586/biodynamic-winemaker-prosecuted-for-not-treating-vines-with-insecticide. Will natural beeks be next?
Am I going mad, or is it the world around me?
yours worriedly, Ingrid
