NNIs may be the problem with the collapse of the bee hives. Maybe not. Some very smart people are looking into it and have been for a while. The bees started having serious problems about 10 years ago. Here and in Europe. There is a lot of investigating going on but no firm conclusions, yet. I believe that in the USA over 90% of the corn and soybeans are treated with it. The problems with bee colonies is not evenly distributed if compared to the use of NNIs. They may have something to do with the bee problem or maybe its something else.

I was under the impression that mites were the leading suspect in the bee problem.

Since the use of NNIs is pretty universal here and in Europe where are the queen bees being imported from? Why does that location not have a problem with bees dieing off? Since the researchers looking into the problem are not blaming NNIs why are you and the OBA doing it? I know its an easy jump to make but like all jumps use a little caution.
