Türkiye struggles with mass bee deaths​



Extract:
After mass bee deaths in Canada and Australia at an unprecedented rate, eyes have now turned to Türkiye, one of the leading countries in the beekeeping industry.

Türkiye ranks second in the number of hives and sixth in honey production worldwide. But today, it is facing serious losses due to the unconscious use of agricultural pesticides and non-practical beekeeping training.

Hardly surprising when there is constant anti-mozzie spraying. The other side effect is the deaths of birds and bats which also rely on insects.

I am not surprised, we are totally organic and use nothing stronger than Arab soap. The chap next door grows cherry and peaches. He has sprayed at least 8 times so far this year. His cherries are no better than ours.
