Chain Gang... of Life

“If the honeybee goes, we have four more years to live on Earth.”

Albert Einstein

Our modern agribusiness has created great challenges for the honeybee:

- Monocultures, with an increasing amount of genetically altered plants

- The elimination of what we call “weeds,” which are often critically important bits of forage with great healing potential

- The general poisoning of our fields and landscape with all the killing agents at our disposal: insecticides, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides

All of these practices weaken the resistance of the honeybee and make her prey to pests and diseases.
