    USA- IS NOT CLEAR THE CAUSE OF THE HONEYBEES DEATH IN OREGON

    Although a veteran commercial beekeeper said “classic starvation” induced by inexperienced hobbyists killed thousands of honey bees in Clackamas County this summer, a retired entomology professor who examined the hives said the case isn’t that simple. Dewey Caron, who has 40 years experience working with honey bees, said there’s no evidence to blame beginning beekeepers for the deaths, which prompted an intensive investigation and laboratory analysis by the Oregon Department of Agriculture. “We do not know what happened,” Caron said. “It doesn’t completely fit starvation and it doesn’t completely fit pesticides. We no more know that it was the beekeepers’ fault than it was an accident, happenstance or one of the things that happen to living animals.”

    SPAIN- IN LUGO BLAME VESPA VELUTINA FOR THE DEATH OF THE BEEHIVES

    Mari Fe  Sixto  is one of most lauded beekeepers in A Mariña. The quality of their honey has been recognized with three golds, three silvers and a bronze by the Ministry for Rural Affairs, through the Regulatory Council Mel de Galicia. Since last year the number of colonies of exploitation has been reduced from about one hundred to seventy. I personally believe that behind this dramatic loss is the Vespa velutina say her, although a veterinarian Beekeepers Association will inspect their operation and diagnosis.
