  • Organic wine = happy, healthy bees | Honey Bee Haven
    He decided to revert to organic growing methods and by 1980 we were among the very first organic wine growers in France I started the Organic Wine Company in 1980 to bring high quality organic French wines to the U S and to educate the wine buying public about the benefits of organic viticulture I owe a debt of gratitude to the people at the Pesticide Action Network their research and outreach is critical to my own efforts as an organic evangelist Now wine grapes are not actually pollinated by honeybees However organic viticulture is important to bees The vineyard partners we work with use various methods of companion planting providing habitat and forage for bees and integrated pest management to grow their grapes My friend Jacques Frelin former President of the Association of Organic Viticulturists in France highlights the benefits to bees in this way Organic viticulture is favorable to honeybees because it does not use pesticides fungicides insecticides fumigants or chemical fertilizers which deplete the soil and cause harm to the whole ecology of the grape growing process We use compost to create a thriving flora which in turn attracts honeybees and other beneficial insects Bees are continuing

  • Above the fold: EPA, protect bees! | Honey Bee Haven
    their bees each year since 2006 twice what is considered sustainable And commercial beekeepers whose bees pollinate California almonds lost over 50 of their colonies last year Some even reported historic losses of 70 or more This is unsustainable not only for beekeepers but for our food system and the agricultural economy EPA get in gear EPA has stated that it s at least five years away from doing anything to protect bees from pesticides known to be harmful First the agency needs to complete its review of neonicotinoids a relatively new and widely used class of systemic pesticides This review isn t due to conclude until 2018 Scientists point to neonicotinoids as a catalyst driving bee declines While acutely toxic to bees meaning it kills them studies have shown neonics also compromise bee immune systems and make them more susceptible to a wide range of other impacts like poor nutrition mites and diseases Still until EPA completes its very slow review of neonic products the agency will not take action to adequately protect bees from this known threat Beekeepers say they and bees can t wait for the agency s glacial pace Federal officials have tried to appease beekeeper concerns with aimless conferences and reports along with changes to pesticide product labels that yield no additional protections for bees But decisive action not token action is urgently needed As beekeeper Jim Doan of New York said Beekeepers are losing colonies at an unprecedented rate the losses are too extreme to keep up with and our entire industry is at risk of collapse unless federal action is taken Convening conferences and changing pesticide labels is not nearly enough The ad urging EPA action is in today s New York Times and also in the Boston Globe the Washington Post Politico
