Ok, help me out here a little regarding the Three P's hypothesis... if a mite was ultimately responsible for killing 97% or so of some of the bee colonies... wouldnt they find the carcasses? Or... some sort of evidence of it, in large amounts? If the mites were liquifying the bees and devouring them... it seems to me that they would find massive quantities of bees in varying stages of that process. And... once the bee is completely devoured... wouldnt there be trace evidence - a residue of some sort - left behind? I mean, in some instances, were talking about tens of thousands of insects, right? So, I guess... once the bee is infected by the mite, it realises it and flies away to die somewhere else? And they all do it at the same time? I dont know... something doesnt seem right about that to me...

Air Pollution when they built banned type recycling plants and banned type incinerators the areas had the worst air pollution in eurpope the bees died out along with many other wildlife the trees got sick the frogs died out and these areas had the highest numbers in the uk and europe for respiratory diseases and deaths and other health problems uk goverments knew these plants were banned in most of the world and the reasons why they told the people they were little recycling plants and covered up helped by all main parys mps corrupt judges local councils who lied the most and still are the media and the disgrace that calls its self a health service the nhs also others these plants are now all over the uk are they taking the waste from other countrys including chemicals nuke plants and dumped nuke waste from other countrys poison everything all these banned plants must be shut down the people in goverment and others must face charges of crimes against humanity and other crimes the uk is being turned into a toxic dump stand up for our little island

Scurvy is not a problem. Humans can live optimally on only meat. Thousands do, including the Sami tribes, who eat only raw reindeer and live to 100 yrs old. It's on youtube, it's not a secret.

Also it demonstrates that you can eat one thing, and be healthy. Cows eat grass, we can eat cows. No pesticides, insecticides (or pollinators) required. The wealthy elite will be fine. The peasant billions (carbohydrate plant munchers?) Bye-bye!!

this is spot on, politicians allow insecticides to be used, which bizarrely kill or weaken bees (which are insects - who'd have thought it - not politicians obviously). Those almond growers could grow additional (february flowering) plants for diverse nutrition, but they wont unless bee farmers make it part of their contract. Bees might not be responsible for all of our food, but they are responsible for all the interesting colourful stuff.

Chemtrails have poisoned the air and land and plants which are used by all things including bees it has even affected immune systems that get weaker so viruses take control and affect health.. If you look up into the sky's in the summer you will see many Chemtrails which last much longer than any normal trail which seem to melt away quickly.

Stop spraying SH#T in the atmosphere and the insects, tree's, fish and wildlife will thrive again. Our planet is being poisoned by the "so called elites" in the name of combating global warming. . Chem trailing. . "spraying" Barium and other heavy metals into the atmosphere . . . A SCAM . . .. Take the so called elites out of the equation and the world will be a far better place.

Just look at Cuba. Their bee population is flourishing as always, their whole insect population is as divers as ever and as many as ever. And now ask yourself what is the difference between Cuba and the rest of the world? Cuba’s agriculture is entirely organic. There are no pesticides or artificial fertilizers being used on the island since the American embargo of 1960. While the rest of the world kept on poisoning the insect population. As usual humanity is looking for other explanations instead of admitting that it’s the result of our own doing.

As far as i know, one major reason for bees‘ vulnerability towards parasites is over-breeding. They are bred to produce the maximum amount of honey, not to be resistant against parasites and diseases

Beekeeper here. Colony Collapse Disorder was a nothingburger (liike Russiagate). Vorroa mites are real. I nuc em with oxalic acid. In my area we are working on capturing wild swarms and encouraging tough local Vorroa resistant bees. In Asia, where the mites orginate, the bees are more 'hygenic'--they clean each other. Wow. I've got some tough colonies now. Today, Jan. 15th in WA. state they were out flying here. Impressive

It's all relative. Woodlice haven't done any evolving in all the time it's taken for mammals to 'come to be', turn into primates, and about 100,000 yrs ago (a blink of the eye in geological time) wear shirts, grow moustaches and make youtube videos about bees. The woodlice have done NOTHING.

Very informative, the bees that just stopped working may have joined the BU. I rarely use herbicide and never use pesticides on our farm, Australia is the only country on earth without Varroa mite but it may only bee a matter of time. I don't know how our native black bees would be affected that should be looked into. I remember reading in an agricultural journal where it was suggested that if the European honey bees were to become extinct so would one third of the over consuming human population on Earth 👍🇦🇺.

In his 2017 video, "How Cats Secretly Keep Us All Alive," the first half is about bees (for some reason), and that they all are okay, except for a small group in Hawaii. 🤷‍♂️ How quickly things change. As for Darwin (also throwing Einstein in for good measure), 🙄. Too much is unknown to say it has to be, or came about, in the way we think. Obviously just my opinion. 🙏

I think the use of bees to pollinate crops by moving them from crop to crop and around the country maximizes exposure to other bees and other bee viruses. I can think of another species that this has been problematic for as well.

I think this fundamentally gets evolution backwards like most people do. Its not that flowers realized they needed to attract bees. The bees selected the most attractive flowers and THOSE genes were passed forward. The flowers are dumb and don't know anything about anything.

Climate change - unlikely. Bees survived much worse climate changes in those hundreds of million years. All frozen Earth, all tropical Earth, meteor strike that killed off the dinosaurs, meteor strike that wiped out large mammals... Pollution, maybe. Unsufficient air quality. Magnetic disturbances, radio waves that mess up their ability of orientation, and with that, 2-3-4-5 or whatever Gs...

As soon as you mention "evolution" I know it's balderdash; but look to Chemtrails for the answer to dying bees and plants. When tested, they contain Aluminum Oxide, Strontium, and Barium; all toxic to life; when sprayed, they land on EVERYTHING!!! Back in the "90's I read about Monsanto developing seeds that would flourish in Alkaline environments; Chemtrails produce these environmental conditions. Wanna buy some seeds...?

We've changed the world to fit us, our whims and our desires. This is the result. If we want something different, then we have to change things back to the way they were before everything started dying. Humans can't even keep a biodiversity going isolated in a sealed dome. Trying to be the master overlords that solves everything is just rank stupidity. We cannot survive without all those other species we treat as something less than the dirt under our feet. Choose.

Did it ever occur to you all that two problems I see and am aware of are; herbicides which everyone use in their yards to kill weeds, dandelions in particular which is the first food source for bees in the spring. The second is pesticides to kill worms and bugs. The perfect lawn attitude probably is one of the main killers. Grass is only good for keeping the dirt out of your homes.
