    More Than Honey: The True Impact of Honeybees

    in Environment

    What will the world be like without bees? Parts of China are already experiencing this because the environment is too toxic for bees them to thrive. They even have to hand pollinate! Why do honeybees and other pollinators matter?  Tune in to this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, as host, June Stoyer is joined by special guest, film producer, Markus Imhoof, to talk about his thought-provoking film, More Than Honey. The film explores the reality commercial beekeepers are facing due to mass bee deaths. Stay tuned!

    Neonicotinoids Interfere With Specific Components of Navigation in Honeybees

    in Environment

    Industry continues to claim neonicotinoids have little to no impact on honeybees but there are numerous studies, especially this particular study which prove the devastating impact. The research conducted by Dr. Randolf Menzel is solid proof that neonicotinoids do interfere with specific components of navigation in honeybees. This research was published almost two years ago and has also never been negated. Why? It's simple. The research is concrete. For our listeners that are unfamiliar with the work of Dr. Randolf Menzel, here is the original interview. 


    In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Neurobiologist and Professor Emeritus, at the Free University of Berlin, Dr. Randolf Menzel about his research titled, Neonicotinoids Interfere with Specific Components of Navigation in Honeybees. Dr. Menzel pioneered the honeybee as a model system in neuroscience with respect to color vision, olfaction, learning, and memory. Combining levels of analysis from natural behavior to single neurons, he traced perceptual and cognitive capacities to their neural and cellular substrates. He established the first evidence for the role of the insect mushroom body in memory formation and characterized the cellular and neural correlates of different phases of memory. His latest research explores the use of three neonicotinoids, (neonicotinoids, imidacloprid, clothianidin and thiacloprid) and their impact on honeybee navigation. Stay tuned!

    Is EPA New Internship For Industry, Japanese Honeybees & Open Letter Impact

    in Environment

    Recently, another top U.S. EPA official was hired by CropLifeAmerica.org. Many people feel that industry recruits top government workers to navigate through the system. However, it may just be that industry is trying to retain top people to avoid environmental catastrophes. Is this strategic or pragmatic?


    Also in the news, Japan has reported honeybee losses from pesticides used on rice paddies. Will Japanese beekeepers suffer the same fate as other beekeepers before action is taken?


    An Open Letter To American Beekeepers was published a month ago and is still drawing attention. What has been the impact of the letter?


    In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, which is produced by The Organic View Radio Show, host June Stoyer and special guest co-host, Colorado beekeeper, Tom Theobald talk about these issues and more. Stay tuned!

    Save Our Bees: The Importance of Honeybees & Food Security

    in Environment

    Bee advocates, beekeepers and the scientific community are taking a global approach in their efforts to protect bees from the dangers of neonicotinoids as well as to help educate the public about the importance of honeybees. As National Honeybee Day approaches this August 16, 2014, we will be focused on the importance of our honeybees and what people can do to take action.


    In this special evening edition of The Organic View Radio Show, two bee advocates Tiffany Finck-Haynes, head of the BeeAction.org campaign for Friends of the Earth and Larissa Walker, the Pollinator Campaign Director and a policy analyst at Center for Food Safety talk to host, June Stoyer about the importance of honeybees, food security and what people can do to save our bees.

    The Fatal Sting of Clothianidin On Honeybees

    in Environment

    Honeybees pollinate 1/3 of all of our agricultural food as well as other important crops such as cotton that are used for textiles. Without them, life as we know it would cease to exist. Any fatal impact on the honeybee would create a monumental disaster. Clothianidin has been widely used as a seed treatment on many of the USA’s key crops (which include canola, soy, sunflowers, wheat and sugar beet crops) for eight growing seasons under a conditional registration granted while EPA waited for Bayer Crop Science, the pesticide’s maker, to conduct a field study assessing the insecticide’s threat to bee colony health. The EPA has moved from granting a conditional registration to full registration of this chemical just in time for the spring planting. Clothianidin is of the neonicotinoid family of systemic pesticides, which are taken up by a plant’s vascular system and expressed through pollen, nectar and gutation droplets from which bees then forage and drink. Scientists are concerned about the mix and cumulative effects of the multiple pesticides bees are exposed to in these ways. Neonicotinoids are of particular concern because they have cumulative, sublethal effects on insect pollinators that correspond to CCD symptoms – namely, neurobehavioral and immune system disruptions.
    In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer will speak to Tom Theobald, Master Beekeeper, President and founding board member of the Boulder County Beekeepers' Association about the impact of this devastation chemical. Stay tuned!

    Bees: An Up-Close Look at Pollinators Around the World

    in Environment

    While we eat, work, and sleep, bees are busy around the world. More than 20,000 species are in constant motion! They pollinate plants of all types and keep our natural world intact. In Bees, you'll find a new way to appreciate these tiny wonders. Sam Droege and Laurence Packer present more than 100 of the most eye-catching bees from around the world as you've never seen them: up-close and with stunning detail. You'll stare into alien-like faces. You'll get lost in mesmerizing colors and patterns, patches and stripes of arresting yellow or blue. Whether you linger on your first close look at the Western Domesticated Honey Bee or excitedly flip straight to the rare Dinagapostemon sicheli, there's no doubt you'll be blown away by the beauty of bees. Sam Droege is a wildlife biologist at the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, part of the US Geological Survey.
