An experiment with these insects determined that animal behavior is based on individual decisions guided by experience. Despite the size of their brains, bees continue to show why they are considered highly intelligent.

Through a statement, the Pesticide Action Network of Chile with Alliance for a Better Quality of Life report a new case of mortality of bees by pesticides and pesticides that are toxic to these insects. Organizations point to neonicotinoid insecticides, imidacloprid (Gaucho), clothianidin (Poncho) Thiametoxam (Cruizer, Syngenta) and fipronil (Regent, Bayer / BASF) family of phenyl pyrazoles, whose use is already banned in the European Union, and other toxic pesticides to bees as Sevin.

The bullfighter Ivan Fandino has won this year's award. He  won on the scale 80 kilos in jars of Alcarria Honey, in a ceremony that took place in the town of Peñalver

Jerry Hayes from Beeologics Company, a subsidiary of Monsanto, at a conference in San Juan province explained the main causes of colony losses: Homogenization of pests, productive agriculture, misuse of pesticides, disposal of productive sites, population growth, entomophobia: fear of insects, Honey low price and pollination low price. Surprisingly, has not spoken about the devastating effect of pesticides on pollinators. Also did not consider that worldwide honey is trading at the highest price since records began and finally he has included in this list, the fear of insects, as is known  population in many countries is very concern about the health of bees and many organizations from his country and all around the world are working to promote international awareness of the need of the bees to ensure the survival of the human race

Local beekeepers warned yesterday about  the low quality of the honey comes from China and invited consumers to buy a product in the province for its high quality, the local economy by generating and enhancing environmental values. Last year, beekeeping moved 2 million euros in Cordoba, where 300 families are engaged in this activity, which in recent years has grown from 45,500 hives in the 2007 to 59000 today and from  220 to 380 farms.

German researchers grew nine strawberry cultivars, including favourites such as 'Elsanta’ and 'Honeoye’. Nearby beehives and artificial nests made sure there were plenty of bees about. Some of the strawberries were covered with a fine mesh, fine enough to exclude even pollen, so these could only be self-pollinated. Others were covered with a mesh that excluded insects, allowing the possibility of wind pollination, while others were uncovered. Fruits were harvested and sorted into commercial grades following the official trade guidelines; strawberry value depends a lot on appearance, and fruits that are small, or have aberrations in shape or colour, are worth less. They also measured fruit firmness; firmer strawberries keep better so are worth more. Finally, they also measured sugar and acid content.

The shock incident came just weeks after genetically modified corn was planted in Ontario, according to the local honey gatherers. Beekeeper Dave Schuit lost about 37 million bees, which is around 600 hives. He said: "Once the corn started to get planted our bees died by the millions."

The technology called "Electronic Detection System" involves the application of a formula based on thymol and other substances through a spray device automated steam removes hives varroa destructor larvae, which offers a comprehensive solution to beekeepers, and thus the entire food chain, since the work of pollination by bees affects more than half of agricultural products. Biologist Erik Leon Guevara is the project leader

Jorge Rathgeb, RN Malleco Deputy  and member of the Committee on Environment and Natural Resources,  with the support of MPs from different parties, seeking to urgently give a serious phenomenon from the food industry, because the mass death of bees in the country "threatening, according to the legislator the food chain as we know it, and its observable effects in a few more five-year periods." In this regard, is that the parliamentary initiative seeks to establish specific control measures, prevention and information, especially in the process of spraying pesticides in fruit orchards, one of the main factors in the population decline of bees and combs in the fields.
