California’s almond orchards have been thirsty for a while in a drought that threatens to lower yields. Also the bees that pollinate them also found water in short supply this year, according to a beekeeper who spoke at a field day in Fresno on challenges facing growers this year. The dozens who gathered at the event — including growers, pest control advisors and others — heard strategies for stretching water supplies and ways to keep those bees healthy and active in developing the nut crop with a value in the billions of dollars.

In an effort to protect honeybees, grain farmers in Ontario will have new guidelines to follow this planting season. According to the the federal Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, farmers can only use a particular type of lubricant to assist in planting seeds coated in a particular family of insecticides. Farmers can only use Bayer CropScience lubricant in their mechanical planters "to minimize the potential for abrasion that produces insecticidal seed dust." The government agencies say other methods scrape seeds during planting and create too much dust that can be picked up by pollinating bees. Last spring, controversy surrounded insecticides, known as neonicotinoids, that coat corn and soybean seeds. Leo Gilbeault grows soybeans on a farm just outside of Windsor. The seeds he uses come coated in neonicotinoids. Gilbeault says he will adhere to the new rule and use best management practices to avoid killing bees. However, he won't stop using seeds coated in neonicotinoids.

Lying on her bed in the Beijing Apitherapy Hospital, Liu Yu, 27, gritted her teeth as she was stung repeatedly by bees. Using tweezers to hold a bee above Liu's neck, attending doctor Wang Menglin allowed the insect to sting her jugular acupoints, and leave behind its stinger and venom sac on the skin. "The devil of disease is more horrible than the stings of bees," said Liu, who takes an average of 80 stings over her entire body during her daily treatment. In 2010, after experiencing numbness in her legs, Liu was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), an often debilitating disease in which one's own immune system eats away at the protective myelin sheath that covers the nerves. There is no known cure for MS, but Liu sought treatment at West China Hospital of Sichuan University. After being injected with hormones for five days, Liu's condition worsened. She lost faith in Western medicine.
