Prohibit bee die-Stop pesticides

They lose their orientation and can no longer take care of the offspring: Pesticides have devastating effects on the bee brain. Now, the EU has struggled through to ban certain pesticides. 2006, for the first time in Europe over the phenomenon of "bee deaths" reports. In the same year, the term "Colony Collapse Disorder" was coined in the United States. According to the State Institute of Apiculture at the University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart, the bee population has now somewhat recovered worldwide. In Germany there are according to the German Beekeepers' Association (DIB) is currently about 600,000 bee colonies. "This is far too little, we could easily have tripled," said DIB President Peter mask. She is regarded as the quintessential villain when it comes to the death of bees: the Varroa mite. Presumed to have imported bees to Europe, it keeps beekeepers on alert. Bees need flowers for survival. Pollen are important to the diet of the bee brood and young bees. Nectar provides the necessary energy to fly, it is something like the gasoline of bees. You need a large variety of flowers to be fed well all over the year. The living conditions even make the bees these days to create. Experts are worried about the dwindling resistance of the bees: Compared with earlier today ranges from a substantially lower varroa infestation to eradicate a bee colony. Protein deficiency exists when the bees have from an early age. In addition, the food is scarce due to the changes in agriculture. The EU Food Safety Authority published in mid-January 2013, a report, therefore bees could be harmed by insecticides. Then, the European Commission has proposed that this particular plant protection agents, also called neonicotinoids to prohibit in oilseed rape, sugar beet, sunflower and corn for two years to stop the bees dying. The environmental organization Greenpeace wanted that certain pesticides are immediately banned in agriculture , As particularly dangerous she raises in their report "Bye bye bee? The Bee Mortality and risks for agriculture in Europe" the three neurotoxins imidacloprid, clothianidin and Thiametoxan out. Here Greenpeace called for an immediate and immediate ban in the EU and at national level. The EU decided in April 2013 to prohibit these three neonicotinoids initially for two years. In addition, Greenpeace classified in the study as well as the pesticides fipronil, chlorpyrifos, cypermethrin and deltamethrin as toxic to bees a The use of neonicotinoids animals make less joint flights because their ability to orient deteriorated. They take longer for their return to the hive and some are recovering an entire day of the poisoning. Even small amounts of pesticides had an effect on the nervous system and of wild bees and bumblebees. This was a team led by neurobiologist Randolf Menzel from the Free University of Berlin out in March 2014. However, the results had been previously collected only on individual bees and the effects are not tested for all bee colonies. The European Food Safety Authority is now thinking about intensive tests for pesticides after. She is currently developing a new guide for risk assessment of plant protection products. He should consider fatal, non-fatal and chronic effects on honeybees, bumblebees and other wild bees. We demand: the insecticide clothianidin -Prohibition -Größeres range of bee-friendly plants initiative for bees Please spread the petition on the Internet! Source: http: / /
