  1. Thank you for posting this. I posted the article link to my Beekeeping Club's fb page. Beekeepers in the US are paying attention to how this pans out.

      I entirely agree with you.
      Without our support they cant exist. They need our money. Im not giving them anything because i dont buy their pesticides and i buy only food which is Organic. I also buy clothes in a second hand shop. I also grow my organic food.
      Give them nothing!
