Bee kills from neonicotinoid planting dust

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.
