CCD Update 2010: MOST IMPORTANT NEW PROOF TO DATE THAT WE ARE RIGHT! VIDEO 2009 – Italian scientists prove neonicotinoid poisoning of bees from just drinking the dew from the leaves! Please use a translator for English when you view this video: Video documentation The plant does not need to be in flower—the bee does not need to consume nectar or pollen to die from this type of pesticide poisoning. The natural phenomena is called “gluttation”. This is not been revealed in ANY previous scientific testing of the chemicals in ANY study ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD or reported anywhere in the U.S. news. News reporters please take note! GMO crops that have the pesticide genome genetically engineered into the plant will have the same effect as plants or seeds treated with neonicotinic pesticides. So the answer to the question—are GMO crops to blame for CCD and honeybee die-off is YES—but it is still neonicotinic pesticides that are the cause. This is a high dose, so the bee dies soon after drinking. This completely invalidates the arguments against the dangers of neurotoxic pesticides like imidacloprid or IMD to bees.
