 Hi Fellow beekeepers ,
                                you might want to read this article, they have just banned the use of these compounds in the EU, maybe we need
to push for that here??   Neonicotinoids in Australia

Here is a petition to help prevent pesticide use on honey bees. Have seen some pretty nasty bee deaths including a swarm I was called on where they wanted me to kill the rest that they didn't get with pesticides.

The info is invaluable because the very pesticides other countries are banning and seeing positive results is also in relation to the petition in USA. Others may see it as a good idea. Or a shot in the dark :)
