I have bees in my yard for the last 3 years & I have resisted attempts by "bee keepers" who want to destroy them.

There may be companies out there more evil than Monsanto, but none come immediately to mind.

As a beekeeper in the U.K. I welcome this post. It's an agridesert out there for many honeybees and other insects; Monsanto doesn't help. YOU can, by planting loads of bee attracting flowers - much of my garden is now a wildflower meadow. Contact your local roads department and get them to plant wildfower seed along the verges. Talk to farmers and beekeepers and get them inter relating re. crop spraing. And more posts like this one. Thanks.

I am a bee-keeper an have no need for Monsanto an company's like Monsanto all they are doing is killing the bees an other animals in the name of making money "WE HUMANS NEED TO REMEMBER IS THAT "ANIMALS INCLUDING BEES DON'T NEED HUMANS HUMANS NEED ANIMALS". Think about it an like the UK bee-keeper said we all can help the bees by planting flowers that bees like. =^..^=

DO YOU REALLY KNOW WHAT'S IN YOUR FOOD??? "WHY" when you buy a 5Lb chicken wash all the slime off an trim the fat off which in my case came to 1.5lb drain off 1lb of water for starts then pre heat your oven to 350* put the bird in the oven set timer for 1 hour 15 Min come back an drain off 2 cups of fat which was 1.1lb so my 8 dollar 5lb chicken was only 2.3lb when it was time to eat it "WHY" Thank you Monsanto for saleing your super grow crap they feed chickens in Tyson ran factory farms. Now I am thinking about raising my own birds when I was a kid my grandma did it right in the ghetto not hard just takes a little time. "YOU KNOW WE HUMANS ARE ON THE "TOP" OF THE FOOD CHAIN AN I WILL BE FRANK HERE "SHIT MOVES UPHILL"" so what Monsanto an Tyson an all Ag company put into the food or sale to farms "WE HUMANS EAT" want to live then start growing your own. =^..^=

Gloria picchetti: "Monsanto will probably kill all of us slowly." Well, yes, unless, of course, we kill Monsanto first.

They should pay in research and funds for destroying our eco system. It's time for global compensation.
