Vanishing of the Bees

This film discusses the disturbing trend of the loss of honeybees known as CCD – Colony Collapse Disorder. Beekeepers reveal the mysterious and abrupt disappearance of hive after hive of seemingly healthy bees. Beekeepers are not only concerned about the pollination impact, but also about what this means from a big picture perspective. They believe that this is merely an indicator of the health of the environment and the sustainability of current common practices.

Holistic practices vs. industrial practices are compared including queen bee lifespan and artificial insemination, honey vs. sugar syrup as food for the hive, and local hives vs. migratory or trucked hives. The potential impact of topical and systemic pesticides are reviewed showing the relation of CCD to the introduction of systemic pesticides and GMOs. Also discussed is the increase in honey products being imported and supplemented with lactose and high fructose corn syrup.

You can help support the honeybees by buying local, buying organic, or planting your own garden.
