I don't doubt that by I fear he is being lead by the nose by those who know exactly what they are doing and for some reason they want a general collapse.

Bytch McCecil, for one. His azz should be in prison and will be discredited twenty years after he is gone by history...

As a beekeeper this makes me see red.  Especially since his billionaire buddies at Monsanto etc are likely at the root of the honeybee's decline.  Fortunately beekeepers are an extremely invested bunch.

I don't think the populations can be built if the bees can't pollinate.

I thought they are putting out bee keepers, then releasing bees into crops. I saw this on a doc. somewhere in the past.

My daughter's father in law is a blueberry farmer. He has to hire beekeepers to pollinate his fields. He blames pesticides for the decline of the bee population. 

At the same time, there are people who claim there is no decline. There must be something to it because he has to hire beekeepers.

This is absolutely true.  Every beekeeper that I know has experienced losses.   The pesticides we use in the agriculture industry and around our homes have created serious issues for the bees.  Not only are they toxic to the bees, but they create an environment in which detrimental parasites are allowed to thrive and multiply in the hive.  Gone are the days of organic beekeeping.   My grandpa NEVER treated his bees with anything.  Try that today and you wouldn't have any bees to keep.

Exactly.  We have some day lilies around  here and they attract the bees and butterflies. We don't spray our flowers with anything.
