We are beginning to get reports of bee kills from around the U.S. and from NE Canada from neonicotinoid dust from corn planting. We don’t know if this will be a problem in Boulder County, but you should be alert to the symptoms if your bees are close to corn. The YouTube below was just done by James Cook a beekeeper working for Steve Ellis in Minnesota and it will give you a good idea of what to look for. We did an interview with Steve Ellis that will run on The Neonicotinoid View Monday, 5-20-13. I don’t have a link for the interview yet.
