“This is the first significant scientific advancement in the treatment of honey bee health since colony loss syndrome began a decade ago; when, suddenly, around the world, masses of bees started dying in record numbers – and they continue dying at faster rates today than in past years,” says Philip McCabe, president of the 115 nation-member International Federation of Beekeepers’ Associations. “In BeesVita Plus, we now have a scientific formulation that provides us with a fighting chance to combat environmental and man-made forces that are destroying colonies.”

Colony Losses & Pesticides

Lee S Rosen – The United States has some of the world’s highest colony loss rates, according to Bee Informed, a not-for-profit consortium of U.S. university bee biologists. These staggering losses have resulted in lower yields of certain crops dependent on honey bee pollination and a decrease in honey production and higher honey prices.

Pesticides

Lee S Rosen – Many scientific, environmental and beekeeping organizations contend nicotene-based neonictinoid pesticides are one of the primary culprits of colony loss. These pesticides are effective at killing crop-eating insects and were first believed to be harmless to honey bees. However, increasing evidence indicates that during the pollination process, as bees fly from plant to plant, they are slowly being poisoned.

Neonictinoid pesticides attack the neurological systems of honey bees. They are unable to navigate their return to the hive and die in the field.

Nutrition & Convenience

Lee S Rosen – Many beekeepers, especially during the winter months, when pollen and nectar are non-existent, feed their hives sugar-water or handmade sugar cakes as a replacement, according to Rosen. “These are ineffective carbohydrate mixtures composed of sugar that are void of scientifically-formulated essential nutrients and anti-oxidants found in BeesVitaPlus.”

He emphasizes, “Beekeepers complain they spend excessive time and labor making and serving bee-feed to their colonies. Beekeepers tell us they need an easy-to-use pre-packaged product that provides proper and effective nutrition.”

21st Century Beekeepers

According to the USDA, in 1940, there were more than 6 million beekeepers in the U.S. Now the number is about 200,000.

The USDA says it is developing a program to identify and recruit young people interested in honey bees; assuring there will be a new generation of American beekeepers in the 21st century.

About Healthy Bees, LLC & BeesVita Plus

Headquarters: Miami Beach & West Palm Beach, Florida.

BeesVita Plus is a patent-pending product that requires no special U.S. and many other government approvals because it contains already-evaluated natural elements. It is manufactured and packaged near St. Paul, Minnesota.

The product is sold in pre-packaged 800 gram patties. The product is available in a box of 32 patties, priced at $320.00.

BeesVita Plus is also sold in varying size bags of water-soluble powder-mix.

The consumption rate of each patty varies depending on how many bees are in the hive and how hungry they are. During fall and winter months the consumption rate of each patty increases due to the lack of pollinating and nectar-rich plants close to the colony from which the bees can draw food.

Billions of Bees Dying

Lee Rosen – Billions of Bees Dying Wordwide

Worldwide, billions of honey bees are dying. They are critical to crop pollination and they are the sole source of honey production. According to an array of credible sources, the suspected causes of colony loss are beekeeping practices, climate change, destructive parasites, diseases, pesticides, pollution, stress, viruses and the lack of proper nutrition.

Lee Rosen of Healthy Bees LLC – The impact that honey bees have on the human population and the environment is far more crucial than you may realize. Agricultural crops rely on honey bees worldwide to help the crops grow, thrive and reproduce year after year. Honey bees facilitate pollination for most plant life, including well over 100 different fruit and vegetable crops. Without honey bees, there would be significantly less pollination, which would result in limited plant growth, a decrease in food supplies, and a loss of biodiversity around the world. Beekeepers are already experiencing the strong economic impact caused by the failing health of honey bees. Their crops are dying and their profits are shrinking, which will ultimately lead to a drastic increase in food prices.

Honey Bees Population

Lee S. Rosen – Honey Bees Population

Honey bees are indirectly responsible for approximately 1/3 of the food produced in the world and support billions of dollars in agriculture. However, the recent major decline in the health of honey bees is hurting pollination-assisted crops and threatening our way of life.

Lee Rosen on the main factors contributing to the decline on honey bee health are:

 

1- Pests and diseases.
Bees are exposed to a great variety of pests such as Varroa destructor, Nosema ceranae, and viruses that are overwhelming their immunity aptitudes.

2- Lack of forage and appropriate nutrition.
Increased monocultures and effects of climate change are reshaping nature as we know it, leaving a poor variety of nutrient for honey bees to consume and thrive.

3- Pesticides.
The indiscriminate use of pesticides is killing bees around the world.

4- Beekeeping practices.
Current beekeeping practices are leading to a less diversified genetics of honey bees, making the honey bees weak and leaving them more susceptible to environmental changes.
