Millions of Bees Mysteriously Die in Florida

MICCO, Fla. (CBS Tampa/AP) – Florida officials are abuzz as to how millions of honey bees were killed in Brevard County.

Several beekeepers in the county have reported lost colonies this week. Charles Smith of Smith Family Honey Company told Stuart News Thursday he lost 400 beehives. He says the bees appeared to have been poisoned.

“I’ll never get completely compensated for this unless someone handed me 400 beehives,” Smith told Stuart News. “I lost the bees, the ability to make honey and the ability to sell the bees.”

Smith told Florida Today that he lost $150,000 from the incident.

State officials are testing the bees to determine what type of chemicals contributed to their deaths.

Experts say pesticides might be behind the lost beehives.

“The fact that it was so widespread and so rapid, I think you can pretty much rule out disease,” Bill Kern, an entomologist with the University of Florida’s Research and Education Center, told Florida Today. “It happened essentially almost in one day. Usually diseases affect adults or the brood, you don’t have something that kills them both.”

The case in Micco, 18 miles south of Melbourne, is being investigated by state agriculture officials and the sheriff’s office.

    Not to worry. They were merely northern bees that retired and moved to Florida.

        You have a good thought there, but I live and study the weather here in Florida and I don’t see any connection to BP in the G.O.M. The daily summertime tropical storm movements, the wind directions, humidity, and other factors don’t stack up for that week of the bee kill. I might be more inclined to suspect and investigate the local NASA and AirForce facilities up and down the East coast of Florida. Nasa pop’s off rockets very frequently, along with AirForce and Navy Aircraft the fly heavily up and down the coast. Rocket fuel is heavy in Iodine and jet fuel in very heavy with mercury, lead and other cemicals. Research has shown that the Bee’s themselves, are by nature very sensitive to the pesticides that are used in the extermination of Mosquitos. Nice try. LOL

      3. Avitar says:

        Melbourne and Bavard county are on the east side of the state Two hundred miles from the Gulf and a thousand from the BP spill We are talking less than 30 miles to NASA
        This is grapefruit and orange country and supports cattle too.

        Thank you for this linked Artical. It makes sense.

    1. Jerri Remov says:

      That might explain why my father has reported about 4- 5 bees dead every day in the walkway of his over- 55 condo in Naples. The bees know.

      1. b says:

        🙂 The bees do know.

    2. s says:

      Try looking at the New Industry pesticides combined with GM plants For example Chinook, used on oilseed rape and Bayer UK 720

      1. Edward says:

        I am stuck here in stupidville California. I spray around my house twice a year an have appleblossom which the bees like not one bee has died an i use the strongest pesticeds i can find, not trying to kill the bees just the ants an other unwanted bugs.. Went to replenish my supply of bug killer only to find out the EPA or the state of stupid banned everything that works…. Now i have bug issues an will have to hire a pro for much $$$… You people need to use your brains, how would a company profit by killing its customers?

      2. CABeekeeper says:

        Hey Edward,
        Whether or not you see dead bees after you spray poisons, you are killing them. Usually if a bees feels itself sick or dangerous to the hive, it will not return to the hive after foraging. It will fly off into sunset, so to say. If enough bees do not return, the hive suffers a slow death. Bee population in CA is 30%. We don’t have enough hives here to pollinate all our crops. Hope you like wheat and corn because that’s what you’ll be eating when the bees disappear.

      3. CABeekeeper says:

        Amendment: I meant the bee population is down 30%.

      4. mtn man says:

        Hey Edward:
        How does a company profit by killing its customers? Can you say “big tobacco”
        They kill tons of customers. BUT these dead customers help tobacco get more addict customers before they die.

    3. Lance says:

      Over 100 bees died in my attic back in May. It occurred shortly after a geomagnetic storm, solar flare. The bees couldn’t find their way back to the colony. There are not pesticide around the house or in the area. It’s mostly wild flowers. The reason they got lost was because of the magnetic fluctuations that wreak havoc on their highly sensitive magnetic compass (that’s how they navigate for 50 miles). They sought refuge in my attic, because at night, it is still relatively warm from the day, and the outside temperature dropped.IN the morning they were trapped because they went towards the screened windows instead of the flue of the roof (smallest opening). And died because of the heat. Pesticide is not the sole answer to colony collapse disorder.

      1. Mike Notsaying says:

        dont forget chem spraying

    3. jay kellog says:

      If history holds…Monsanto would just sue the beekeeper for unauthorized use of it’s insecticide, and win! Then a Democrat-appointed appeals court would uphold the ruling. The beekeepers land would then be seized in the judgement and given to Monsanto.

      Hey, ask farmers how many of them have lost everything to Monsanto that way…

      1. Wood Yi says:

        all too true. Americans refuse to believe in justice. No reason to trust anyone in this country anymore, all rotten, top to bottom.

      2. Jodi says:

        You nailed it, Jay. Unfortunately.

        Our planet is doomed because we’re too freakin’ lazy and stupid to care for it the right way. And our government idiots keep siding with the mega-corporations and the almighty dollar instead of doing a little research and exercising common sense. And yep, Monsanto has destroyed the livelihoods and lives of farmers who were doing everything right; and in doing so, has succeeded in dooming us all.

    5. ryan says:

      Chemtrails! Heavy aersol spraying has done the same to honey bees and bumble bees here in upstate NY too.

      1. BobPDX says:

        Chemtrails for ever baby.

        I saw 12 lines across the sky in Oregon one day last week.

        They must have turned up the juice in Florida.

    6. Pikkon says:

      Beeologics is focused on biological research. Current projects in its pipeline – including a product candidate being developed to help protect bee health – use a naturally-occurring process to provide targeted pest and disease control.

      http://monsanto.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=43&item=980

      1. blah blah blah says:

        if it’s “naturally-occurring” does that mean Monsanto won’t seek a patent? This seems like a big deal, will they’d do this for the greater good for free? No, I didn’t think so. Just introduce another product, another revenue stream.

      2. lisa says:

        oh just great, now Monsanto wants to genectically engineer bees so they wont die when sprayed with their own (monsantos)synthetic chemicals.. its the same thing they did to all of our corn, soybeans, canola and cotton,and now 15 years later all the crops are starting to fail, the soil is degraded, the pests are immune, the weeds are even bigger and the crops are falling to disease. I wouldnt trust the bees with Monsanto! EVER!

    7. blah blah blah says:

      Would not be suprised. But if the bees ingested the GM pollen, wouldn’t Monsanto then “own” the bees?

      There have been ENORMOUS amounts of chemtrails in this area the last few days. I believe it’s a combination of pesticides, chemtrails, cell towers and GMOs.

      1. treasurecoastskywatch says:

        Sure has been a lot of chemtrails in this area , how else can they push GMO seeds . they need to destroy the Ph of the soil

      2. hillcoguy says:

        The Ph of the soil can only be corrected by human feces tilled into the soil. Invite a bunch of friends over for DUMP party!

      3. Bruce says:

        I assume that you, and the others parroting the “chemtrail” statements who might also be you, are refering to contrails from airplanes. I can assure you that the trails you see are caused by hot air from the engines squeezing humidity out of the air, which then immediately, if it’s cold enough, refreeze into a cloud of ice crystals. They are not chemicals or pesticides or florides or mind control drugs.
        I have the feeling that I’m wasting my breath as I would be if I tried to convince you we had landed on the moon, that George Bush didn’t blow up the World Trade Centers, or that President Obama is a US citizen, but it was worth a try.

    2. MikeSpike365 says:

      The first flower in my yard each is the lowly dandylion. The bees love them. Herbicides on peoples lawns kill off the flower the bees need. Now I appreciate the bees and try to keep a fresh perspective on the beauty of dandylions!

      1. Jodi says:

        Bravo, Mike! Me too. Dandelions are the first honey bee food source to bloom here every year. And this spring, our idiot homeowners association put up signs around the neighborhood encouraging us all to “spray the dandelions” and thus “help make our neighborhood more beautiful!” Seriously! (Just thinking about it, I think I threw up in my mouth a bit… again!)

        We have far too many short-sighted, easily led folks (like ol’ California Edward, above) who fall for the lies and have only the level of patience that calls for quick fixes. Meanwhile, they spray their Monsanto chemicals to temporarily solve the problems that last year’s chemicals created, and continue the cycle of ruining the land they live on.

        Give me dandelions (which, by the way, are edible for us, too!) and healthy honey bees any day over artificially green lawns and manicured shrubs!

      2. lisa says:

        bruce is one of those who thinks the elite govt/corp will take care of us and care about us! WOW, wonder if he has ever heard of operation northwoods? LOOk it up! and I have more evidence of crooked/corruption. LOTS.. and this is just the stuff that gets thru! Most of it is hidden, and never comes to light of day! GULLIBLE people!!

  4. patriot888 says:

    First check into Eco-terrorists who want to exaggerate global warming.

    1. OGolly says:

      My first thoughts precisely …

    2. lisa says:

      dandeliions were brought to USA from EU for the fact that they were completetly edilble and gave habitat to bees.!!!!!!

    3. lisa says:

      we are talking about global poisoning. It can alter weather as well.

  5. DianeCee says:

    The federal “gubmint” is hard at work killing off our food supply. It’s time to keep them at bay. In Florida, they have a “you loot, we shoot” law. It’s time to apply that law.

  6. WakeUpAmerica says:

    It’s obviously a terrorist attack, the people that control the food supply control the population. We were sucker punched on 9/11 and it’s happening again. The communists and radical islam are working together to take this country down in ways both big and small.

  7. Janie Sims says:

    Some years ago I heard about the alarming fact that bees are dissappearing (around the world). Many reports have stated CCD (colony collapse disease) where colonies just disappeared is a mystery. This article states these bees were poisoned. My thoughts were also focused on Monsanto. With current crop shortages, without bees to pollenate the crops, future produce/food supply will dwindle. A plan for the government to control our food supply, or lack of???

    1. kathy says:

      Hubby (who works in agriculture) and I talked about this phenomenon just yesterday. He said that Bayer (of aspirin fame) developed a chemical that lives in the soil for something like 15 years and that it was responsible for a lot of these bee deaths, especially European bees that already have compromised immune systems. I’m sure there’s probably more to the story, but this is a beginning place to research.

      1. newenglandbeekeeper says:

        You are correct. My husband and I are commercial beekeepers. Bayer produces systemic pesticides. And the people from Bayer have shown up on the doorsteps of the ag researchers to threaten them. I’m not saying anymore. These people creep me out.

  8. SmartMetersSuck says:

    It appears that Florida now has Smart Meters. Congratulations!

    1. Silvina says:

      Florida Power & Light recemtly installed a Smart Meter and everyday since then, I am finding dead bees. No pesticides were involved, which is what I thought at first. Upon researching the Smart Meters, I am finding all sorts of troubling things about them.

  9. Catherine Crabill says:

    MONSANTO is RIGHT! Genetically Modified Foods are designed to produce their OWN INSECTICIDE/PESTICIDE!
    Today the honey bees, tomorrow it’s YOU! Demand the labeling of GMO foods in America and shut down this genocide!

    1. Denver says:

      what nonsense.

      1. Janie Sims says:

        Before you say nonsense, maybe you should research GMO (Genetically Modified Foods) and then respond. You do know that Monsanto owns GMO seeds. AND, Monsano is sueing farmers for saving seeds. Google Monsanto illegal to save seed. You will see that it is illegal for farmers to save seed. THIS IS INSANE… AND SCARY AS HE**. And the word ‘nonsense’ doesn’t even come close to what our government is doing.

      2. What? says:

        Whats the refute, its Monsato, Duh!

      3. Jack J. says:

        Hey Janie Sims, you are completely wrong and have bought off on the Monsanto propaganda. Sigh…

        WHen a farmer plants GMO seed next to farmer B who does not use GMO seed, the GMO filed contaminates the no GMO filed. Monsanto finds out who does not use GMO in the area, waits till their fields are harvested, sends their goons down to take samples of the non-GM crop, and viola! Of course there is natural cross contamination, by bees, wind, etc.So Monsanto sues the farmer for patent infringement saying the farmer is using patented seed from Monsanto. Which is completely BS, because Monsanto seed is “Terminator” seed, genetically modified not to produce more seed so every farmer will have to return to Monsanto to buy more seed.

        So you are the farmer being sued by a multibillion dollar corporation (which now owns XE, formerly Blackwater). What do you do? Dump your 401k and hire a lawyer to fight in court for 10 years and destroy your life? Or do you roll over and say you are guilty and settle out of court?

        I will keep typing, as long as it takes to show others the truth.

  12. Rhonda Zuti Hough says:

    It’s already been mentioned that all the cellular towers are scrambling the bees brains so they don’t return to the hives. Ironic to think that our need to stay in touch could be the complete undoing of the agricultural nation.

  13. JR says:

    Something else is going on that isn’t natural. It wouldn’t be disease or sporadic pesticide use. It sounds like something purposeful.

    1. Tony says:

      Posted on Way awomese, some legitimate factors! I recognize you creating this short article obtainable, the remainder of the website can be higher top quality. Have a very entertaining.

  14. Melanie Smith says:

    It has already been concluded that this sudden colony collapse has been linked to the use of “systemic” pesticides (NOT older topically applied pesticides like Sevin, etc.) The beekeepers in France have been through this already and determined this correlation with the systemic (the type that the plant absorbs through the root and enters the interior part of the plant) type of pesticide. When the colonies were kept away from crops with “systemic” pesticides, there was no longer sudden colony collapse. I would not blame one organization. Blame the TYPE of pesticide and seek to curtail its use.

    1. Chuck Baby says:

      Melanie, You are the only writer in this hogwallow of panic and ignorance with a plausible explanation. The beekeepers and the public deserve a responsible approach to this problem. Persons who cannot pass the science portion of the GED should just not be allowed to post.

      1. ctinpvb says:

        Think Melanie has put a ‘capital’ on many of the thoughts expressed here. Bayer/Monsanto create sytemic pesticides. Add the Government (proscriptions/prescriptions et al) to Monsanto. Add ‘worst interest per ideological agendas’ equal; in so many words not just ‘eco-terrorisim’ but a Government-at-work; preparing their own version of Brave New World – and Beyond. . .

  15. ygtr says:

    Chemtrails + HARRP

  16. OGolly says:

    I concur that there is sufficient evidence to suspect eco-terrorism, not only by the usual suspects, but large multi-national corporations such as Monsato which seek to control the food supply and thereby the population. It is high time we wake up to the global elitists who wish to rule the world the way the aristocrats of the “dark ages” ruled the known world.

    pesticides from some spray not that far away

  18. No thank you says:

    There was very heavy chemtrail coverage over Tampa Bay on around Sept 21 and I videoed the jets laying down line after line of it. Authorities won’t say what they put in the mix but some sources say it is Aluminum Oxide an Barium and this stuff gets on the planst and your lungs. Aluminum is bad for humans, imagine what it does to a tiny bee.
    Supposedly this aerosolized chemtrail is done for our own good, but I think the results on human food an respiration will end up similar to bees, it’ll just take longer.
    PS If you really support our troops STOP spraying their wives and children that live in Tampa. I have videoed the jets laying for several months, some days it is heavy, some days your don’t see chemtrails at all

      2. lisa says:

        India is suing Monsanto for stealing their seeds. Monsanto does not care about much else except profit and control of the food supply. Monsanto and USAID are hooked up and many think they are a wonderful entity, BUT think again…The USA funded a serilization program thru vaccines in the phillipines (no one who got the vaccines knew they were being rendered sterile) via USAID in 2005 I believe… USAID tried to give patented seed away in Haiti after the earthquake. but thousands of Haitians marched in protest. These seeds are patented to make money.. PERIOD. And once you have planted them in a field almost nothing else will grow in that field for 3 years except the GMO seed. The seed has been altered so that it is capable of accepting a toxin that would normally kill the plant, so when you go to plant anything else in a field that used GMOs noting will grow. IT is a trap. plain and simple. GMOs cause soil degradation, plant disease, and tolerant bugs, and weeds. super pests…. it also does not discriminate and will kill beneficial plants and insects. We lived for thousands of years without Monsanto and the like. What they spin out of their mouths is nothing but glitter coated lies to produce revenue. They boast of feeding the worlds rising population and helping the starving. they cannot nor ever will be able to stop starvation.. nor do they really care.NO one can. EVER. stop starvation,, its a sad fact of life.

Do some research and your’ll find out that Monsanto has a horrible, toxic track record.

  29. Kirsten says:

    I am sure this has nothing to do with chemtrails and all of the garbage that has been sprayed !! Look up people, those planes that are leaving chemtrails that hang around for hours after the plane has passed is not a contrail. Get educated, it is a dangerous business. Oh, and one of the chemicals sprayed is aluminum, and coincidently Monsanto is the only argi-business that now sells seeds impervious to aluminum–WE ARE NOT DUMB!!!!!

    1. Pam says:

      Your 100% correct. Look up people and see what is being dumped on you. Not only insects are being wiped out but birds and animals too. Veternarian’s are dealing with many cases of small animal deaths in our area this summer.

  30. ELI says:

    Britain has banned the use of a certain pesticide that if you spray it today it remains in our envoirnment for 37 YEARS and continues to kill insects at the same time.

    As bees are transported from the West Coast in the fall and then make the return trip East in the spring the trucks are driving thru areas where these chemicals have been sprayed.

    Check into stories of Bee transporters and how many bees they lose every time they make the trip to the East coast or the West Coast. It will make you sick.

    I am sorry but I cannot remember the names of the chemicals but its something xxx-nicotine in it.

    When the bees are gone we are done! No food to feed our cows, chickens, goats, birds or us. This means nothing in your garden will grow unless you devise a way to pollenate it all.

    Complete choas will break out over food wars as the survivors will eat all the food remaining and then the whole world will die. Well, the super rich will live on what they have stored but at some point in the future they will run out of refined fuel, roads and airport runways not being maintained and no one to build the parts for their corporated jets and helicopters to fly around in, no one to fix their cars or anything in their homes. In essence, they will die too but at a later date then the rest of us.

    Stop watching TV and sitting on your butts and no knowing what is happening around you. Learn how to garden, fix things yourselves and get ready for what is coming. Its going to be here sooner than you think.

    Or get ready to lay down and die a horrible death from stravation, disease or at the hands of a roving gang hell bent on taking what you have.

    Its monsanto those evil Illumanati /Rothchild backed B*a*s*t*a*r*d*s Why is not rogue scientist conducting test on monsantos crops and the bees to prove this! Its very logical as to what is killing those bees! They should be able to easily track down the source but I bet you monsanto has there people in the area to pay off the officials to cover this up! They will give some lame as excuse as to what killed the bees just you wait! The bottom line is that bee colonies have been dieing off all over the americas and europe and its monsanto or pesticides doing it! The most logical answer is geneticaly altered plants by monsanto that produce there own pesticides to kill bugs well its killing off the plantets bees that polonate our food and flowers that is what GOD created them for! Send this article to all your friends this is important

  38. Big Paul says:

    Neonicantnoids, Produced by monsanto to coat seeds interfears with the bees chemical trail. they just get lost and die. Monsanto says it does not get to the pollen stage but there full of BS. Money money money.

      My grandfather worked for Monsanto for 43 years and he has told me a number of stories about the industry.

This is their trend; the journalists they hire allegedly report on a serious story and invariably an immature headline is attempted. No bees; no cross pollination = no food. Get the picture?

  41. NY9Solyndra says:

    Have the Dems blamed this on the Tea Party yet?

    1. Dontarrious says:

      That’s the smart tinhking we could all benefit from.

  42. American Patriot says:

    China is probably behind this – They do want to control the Honey Market just like every other market. Once the culprit(s) is(are) found, then it could be quite likely that a good investigator would find a link behind the scenes to the Chinese.

  43. john smith says:

    Honey Bees are victims of the United States Labs and Mr Obama’s orders. The rest of the World is not having a proble,=m.

  44. Teresa Franey Howington says:

    He needs to see if they built a cellphone tower nearby. It’s been proven that the high transmission power of the towers are deadly to bees, and will cause cancer in humans if they’re too close.

  45. jayzee says:

    Chemtrails we’re dumped on Florida, killed he bees

  46. Garr Obo says:

    Actually, it’s all George Bush’s fault.

  47. Pat Burneson says:

    What flower has blossomed recently? They need to test on a cellular level. Not just chemical.

  48. FedUpWithBigGovernment says:

    They should check the mosquite killers they have been spraying lately. They have been running the trucks here in Brevard frequently lately to attempt to control the mosquite population.

  49. ken says:

    Municipalities spray mosquitos during daylight hours and people report wild hives for elimination to animal control all the time….its a no brainer!

  50. MA says:

    I’ve seen a lot of dead bees around our home this weekend.

    We’re just south of where these bees died.

    I wish people would do what it takes to stop companies like Monsanto. Where are all our Environmentalists?

  51. Taomaster says:

    Chem-trails is the problem.

  52. Chris says:

    We got sprayed w/ Dibrom(Naled) by airplanes here in NC and now they are doing the same in VA, They doit in MD w/ large Bee die offs everywhere. They come right over private property,they have taken our proerty rights. The chemical co.s have infiltrated the EPA and CDC and are eliminating Entomologists jobs who understand how to larvicide and IPM are most effective instead of blanket covering areas w/ Dibrom and truck spraying. This is the chemical co.s in our administration ,they care not if we have no pollinators just want to sell their chemicals. We must organize to stop them,my only bumble bee is gone after this spray

    1. dave says:

      dibrom is sprayed by air and is done at nite wile bees are in there hives. it is a acid that burns holes thru the mosquito.but bio-mist and malathion are sprayed by ground sprayers and stays on the foliage for hrs.when bees are active. i would say ground spraying would kill them.

  53. hillcoguy says:

    Poison? What works?? I had a hive of very aggressive bees in a tree in my front yard. I tried spectracide, black flag and all the other poisons advertised on TV. After two weeks of poisoning, nothing worked. I went to the county agent and wa told that drowning them with water will make them move. Day after day of a hose finally got them yo move to my neighbors tree. This neighbor razzed me everyday of my battle, so he deserved it.

  54. Constitution First says:

    No bees, no food. Dwell on that a minute. They’re not just any bug, our very survival depends on them.

  55. Florida Jim says:

    If you would like to know more about bees please read “The Beekeepers Lament” it is an absolutely wonderful book about a subject everyone knows a little about after reading it you will have a new perspective.

  56. Susystin says:

    I believe you can look towards D.C. You still don’t get it, do you! We are evil Americans and their aim is to make sure we don’t have enough food, water and a life like we aer accustomed to. That is except them, of course.

  57. chris says:

    I have had some experience with the commercial beekeeping industry in FL and other areas in the US. Honey production, pollination services and bee production is a highly competitive and cutthoat business. There is a possibilty that someone intentionally poisoned to get rid of competition…..I have witnessed it before. Just because it is a chemical coesn’t mean it is bad. Are you aware that beekeepers have been using pesticides in their hives to control the mites that can infest honeybees? There is more happening here than meets the eye.

  58. maltboy1 says:

    This isn’t surprising. Florida’s not exactly WASP friendly either.

  59. SGT JT says:

    Can you say HARRP. That’s what this is. Gov testing out it’s toys. You can link this to the birds that died sometime last year, as well as the lank full of fish that died around the same time.

  60. curious man says:

    We spend summers in an area of california that is very much “off-the-grid”. Natural and federally protected environment, very very low population, little electricity, no cell service, no copper wire, only well water. two things of interest to me: 1) the bee population has gone through the roof in the last couple of years. millions of them, literally. There is much flora and fauna, some beekeeping, etc but that cant explain it all. In the middle of the day there are so many around our property and nearby that you can easily hear a constant “buzz”..,2) when i use either my computer (with my wifi inadvertently left on) or a mobile handset from our house phone, the bees (honey, bumble, yellowjackets, we have em all) get very agressive and seem to want to attack the device and/or the user. Curious, no?

    1. noname says:

      I seriously doubt the bee population is what you hear. bees do not create the buzz sound unless one is standing right next to the hive or is close by when a colony is re-locating their nest…
      i live in the woods 8 years now in rural Mendocino county. there are NOT many bees in the coastal forest here where we live…
      However, there ARE millions of yellowjackets; so many the woods are abuzz with them at peak season in summertime. they nest underground, and are both territorial and aggressive if they perceive human actions as threatening to self or hive/nest..
      I’d bet your report is yellowjackets and not honeybees… because they do appear similar to a casual observer.

  61. Tom says:

    The bees may have been in a cult and their leader told them to commit suicide. At least thats my theory.

  62. maggie says:

    Well it has been stated that they want to reduce population and this sure is
    one way to go about it. Never have heard any plausible explanation for
    chemtrails being good for anything. Just rather hard for most people to
    wrap their heads around the idea that any group of people could mean
    so much harm to anyone. If it’s happening around the world this should
    tell you something.

  63. LK says:

    Looik no further than Israel. They have been trying to control the worlds bee supply for years because by doing so they control the world’s food supply and by proxy the world itself. I believe that the bees were in fact poisoned by Israeli agents inside this country. Anyone know if Monsanto is jewish owned? Before you label me a kook like the chemtrail believers check it out for yourself.

  64. Bruce says:

    The contrails from airplanes are simply water vapor being squeezed out of the air from the heat of the engines and then refreezing. Look it up! It isn’t some nefarious program spraying stuff on everything. I know, I’ve flown jets for a really long time, but I suppose to the tin foil hat crowd that just makes me part of the conspiracy…

    1. treasurecoastskywatch says:

      Sure they are Bruce and now they last all day and spread out even in places with high humidity like Arizona . i know what a con trail is and this isnt what we are talking about . what do you do for a living that you are such an expert Bruce ? or is that your real name ? maybe jay reynolds ? thor ? contrail science ?

  65. Myriam says:

    How does one fight the kind of ignorance some of the people who comment possess? Do not know… I am as ignorant as the rest… I don’t have an answer only questions… Why why why….

    1. Sunny says:
