Millions of bees dead after South Carolina sprays for Zika

On Sunday morning, the South Carolina honey bees began to die in massive numbers.

Death came suddenly to Dorchester County, S.C. Stressed insects tried to flee their nests, only to surrender in little clumps at hive entrances. The dead worker bees littering the farms suggested that colony collapse disorder was not the culprit — in that odd phenomenon, workers vanish as though raptured, leaving a living queen and young bees behind.

Instead, the dead heaps signaled the killer was less mysterious, but no less devastating. The pattern matched acute pesticide poisoning. By one estimate, at a single apiary — Flowertown Bee Farm and Supply, in Summerville — 46 hives died on the spot, totaling about 2.5 million bees.

Walking through the farm, one Summerville woman wrote on Facebook, was “like visiting a cemetery, pure sadness.”

A Clemson University scientist collected soil samples from Flowertown on Tuesday, according to WCBD-TV, to further investigate the cause of death. But to the bee farmers, the reason is already clear. Their bees had been poisoned by Dorchester’s own insecticide efforts, casualties in the war on disease-carrying mosquitoes.

I will bet your life that not only is this poison being sprayed to kill zika, is being sprayed to kill all of us, and even the bees becasue without bees nothing will get pollinated and grow... Especially food... and I will guarantee you one thing right here and now, this spraying to kill of the zika virus won't do a damn thing to stop it and you will hear them, the govt say we need to spray more or in heavier doses or something like that...

The fake Zika spraying is being blamed to deflect attention away from the true source of bee deaths.
GMO organisms and Round Up.
