    URUGUAY- THE DISAPPEARANCE OF BEES IS ALSO AT HOME

    Gabriel Rodriguez, vice president of the Uruguayan Apiculture Society commented that "We are the same or worse than in other countries," adding about the persistence of pollinating insects in Uruguay "Here are products that are still being adopted and  in other countries were rejected or banned ". These products are harmful to bees and harmful to the environment and humans. "While some agrochemical producers need to control pests, Uruguay are using chemicals that are not correct," he said. On the other hand, said that there are other fertilizers on the market that could be used. Finally added that beekeepers in the country "we have to fight against a production cost that is enormous mortality of 25 percent per year in our beehives"

    SPAIN- GOES AHEAD THE PLAN TO FIGHT AGAINST VESPA VELUTINA IN CATALONIA

    The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries, Food and Natural installed 200 traps  to stop the spread of this insect, although it does not represent an additional risk to humans, although it is more aggressive, but it involves large losses for beekeeping in Catalonia. The priority is to identify the technical and capture queens, and from there prepare a perimeter of traps, attractants made made from fermented juice of old wax, beer and white wine. Also, seek counseling specifically in areas close to honey production areas to prevent productions are affected.

    USA- NEW YORK BEEKEEPER WORRIED BY BEES' DISAPPEARANCE

    John Gibbs of Gowanda-based Gibbs Apiaries with almost 3,800 hives  pollinate everything from the berry bushes at Awald Farms to the Eden Valley Growers’ annual produce crop and the apple orchards near Olcott. “It’s definitely a concern,” said Gibbs, a 30-year-plus commercial beekeeper. He can remember years when he lost 7 percent of his bees. The annual losses have ballooned to between one-quarter and one-third in the last decade. He’s doing everything he can now to stem the losses. That includes housing hives near wooded areas away from pesticides, putting them inside in temperatures between 40 to 42 degrees, supplementing hives with sugar syrup and “shortening the winter” by taking them cross-country to forage on almond trees in California.
