What's Behind Illinois Stealing Local Hero's Bee Hives?

Quote: An Illinois beekeeper whose bee hives were stolen and allegedly destroyed by the Illinois Department of Agriculture has stirred up a hornet's nest with his questions on why the state did this, and most importantly, what they did with his bees.

The state claims the bees were destroyed because they were infected with a disease called foulbrood.

But when the 58-year apiary keeper had his hearing—three weeks after the removal of his bees without his knowledge—the state's "evidence" had disappeared, leaving more questions than answers about the raid on the beekeeper's hives.

Some people, including the beekeeper, Terrence Ingram, suspect the raid has more to do with Ingram's 15 years of research on Monsanto's Roundup and his documented evidence that Roundup kills bees, than it does about any concerns about his hives.

Interestingly, the state's theft targeted the queen bee and hive he'd been using to conduct the research.

It's only going to get worse unless the people take a stand.

The eradication of any form of self sufficiency is in motion. It's all on your dime, paying for our own demise and people say nothing. gaah.gif When people do speak out, it may well be too late.
The other side of the coin is the power outage in DC shows just how much of an illusion all this really is. They can paint themselves as powerful all day long, till the power goes out. 13.gif

The problem is that killing the bees isn't just eliminating self sufficiency. Bees are vitally important for the pollination of food. What's going to happen when we have a fraction of the bees trying to pollinate the increasing need for food?

That's just evil.

Different approach here:

Quote:Harakka island just off the Helsinki shore is a bee-friendly haven where urban bee enthusiasts prep beehives to be situated around the city this summer. Christina Stadlbauer, a Belgian urban bee activist, is behind the Aalto University project.

"They make fantastic urban honey which has a wonderful flavor," she explained, adding that bees thrive in urban settings, which is why they're swarming into European cities following an urban bee movement in North America.

The pollen eaters are spoiled for choice in the city, which may have a wider variety of species than rural areas.

Bees imported from the Häme region are set to spend the summer in Sibelius Park in Helsinki's Töölö neighbourhood.

Setting up a hive in one's yard or balcony does not require a special permit.

Quote:The new US Ambassador to Finland, Bruce Orek, is setting up a beehive in the fenced-off yard of the American Embassy in Helsinki. Orek himself is concerned about the decline in natural diversity, and wants to promote small-scale urban beekeeping.
Beehives are also being set up at the botanical gardens in Kaisaniemi and in Kumpula, which are run by the Finnish Museum of Natural History of the University of Helsinki.
