USA- BEE THIEVES IN UTAH

The bee rustlers took frames — filled with bees and honey — from 24 hives owned by 15-year-old Bryce Bunderson, a student at Bear River High School, and his brother Tate, currently serving in the Arkansas-Little Rock Mission.

In June 2014, FoodManufacture.co.uk conducted a survey on its user base of food and drink manufacturing professionals. The objective of the ‘state of the industry’ survey was to gauge the views about the current state of the food and drink manufacturing industry and identify the issues that are causing most concern. The survey was taken by food and drink manufacturing professionals based in the UK. Please download attached document

SPAIN - BEE PAINTING CONTEST IN GALICIA

Presented a  proposal to be  established in the area of the Province of Santa Fe. It consists in a compensation , with  a  grant of a non-refundable contribution to those beekeepers who own agricultural emergency certificate"

Jim Coneybeare, second vice-president of the Ontario Beekeepers' Association,  said Ontario honeybees are currently experiencing "chronic insecticide poisoning" due to chemicals, such as neonicotinoids, sprayed on soy and corn, both leading agricultural crops in the area. As bees hover from plant to plant gathering pollen and nectar, the pollen transfers with it, thus completing an essential reproductive role in cross-pollination, according to Syngenta, a leading agricultural organization. "When you have the residue in your dead and dying bees and you have the residue in their food source, it's pretty well a smoking gun," Coneybeare said. Coneybeare - who keeps roughly 850 hives - compared the current state of the declining bee population with the tobacco industry 30 years ago. "There were all sorts of denials and campaigns to create doubt saying it couldn't be nicotine," Coneybeare said.

New Zealand has the potential to harvest multi-billion dollar returns from pharmaceutical honey applications, says Dr Shaun Holt, founder of Bay of Plenty-based Honey Lab. The company focused almost exclusively on pharmaceutical applications for medical honey and bee venom, and devoted about 80 per cent of available funding to research, he said. "Our aim is to develop intellectual property in terms of product research that we can license to major global pharmaceutical companies," said Dr Holt, who was also an adjunct professor at Victoria University of Wellington. The company's products were produced from kanuka honey, rather than the manuka honey that is more commonly associated with medical benefits. However, Dr Holt said honey from both manuka and kanuka - which were largely endemic to New Zealand - contained significant anti-microbial qualities.
