Pesticide Poisoning

Every day, I take a short trip out to the 'bee yard' to watch the behavior of the bees from the outside. Today I want to point out a problem that I saw outside of my hive- Pesticide poisoned bees. As many of you may know, my hive last year died unexpectedly from pesticide poisoning. It is absolutely normal to have dead bees on the ground in front of a hive, but I will never stop being shocked by seeing nearly dead bees twitching, unable to stand upright, and running in circles from being poisoned by pesticides.

I want to share a video with you- of a bee dying from pesticide poisoning.
