Within the article:

So that is the biggest threat to bees?, I asked. Pesticides?

His response was quick: “No, no, it’s not,” he said. “The main danger to bees is actually the beekeepers themselves.”

My Comment:

Well I find this hard to believe. Beekeepers for years had thriving colonies and now it's THEIR fault. This is like blaming the people for being poor when you move their jobs overseas, stagnate the wages, and then slant the tax code in favor of a few at the expense of the many.......

The rise of pesticide correlates to the downfall of the bee populations. I'd have to see much more evidence than this article to convince me otherwise. I'm sure there are other factors included in the bee downfall; however to flatly dismiss pesticides is wrong and dangerous. Without bees we have little choices in foods.
