    AUSTRALIA- BEEKEEPERS WORRIED BY NEONICOTINOID INSECTICIDES USED TO CONTROL  CANOLA VIRUS

    The western yellows virus, has affected more than 10,000 hectares of canola in South Australia, and has recently been detected in Victoria and New South Wales. The disease is spread by the green peach aphid, and beekeepers are worried that certain insecticides used to control the aphid could damage the bee industry. The Australian Honey Bee Industry Council's chairman Ian Zadow says he's concerned that some farmers are using neonicotinoid chemicals that aren't yet approved for foliar use by the national regulator, the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA).

    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.
