Is Bayer Poisoning Your Pet While They Kill the Bees?

Posted on November 3, 2014


Bayer uses the same insecticide that has been banned throughout the EU in one of their best selling flea and tick products, Advantix. They have no problem selling imidacloprid-containing insecticides to U.S. dog and cat owners, even though it has been linked to seizures in anecdotal accounts, and is certainly a neurotoxin which is not entirely safe for your favorite furry friend.

This product is brought to you by the same company that is happy to poison the planet in other ways, too – namely through the creation of neonicotinoid pesticides which coat about 90% of U.S. corn seeds and seeds of increasing portions of other major crops like soy. These chemicals have emerged as a likely trigger for colony collapse disorder, as evidenced again here in this NBC News report.
Imidacloprid is in the neonicotinoid class of insecticides. It is included in the European Food Safety Authority’s (EFSA) scientific report, which identified “high acute risks” for bees as they are exposed via dust in several crops such as corn, cereals and sunflowers, to residues in pollen and nectar in crops like oilseed rape and sunflower and to guttation in corn. Nonetheless, the US Environmental Protection Agency has not banned the product, nor made any provisions to limit its use.
As if GMO poisons weren’t enough – Bayer Animal ‘Health’ brings you pet poison too.
The company also recently admitted that there is no way to stop the uncontrolled spread of its genetically modified crops.

“Even the best practices can’t guarantee perfection,” said Mark Ferguson, the company’s defense lawyer in a recent trial launched by two Missouri farmers suffered from contaminated crops caused by Bayer’s GMO seed.
Yet we will trust them with our pets?
There is a much safer solution to fleas and ticks.

Borax, sold in the same place as laundry soap at your grocery store, will easily kill fleas and ticks in your home. It is a more natural alternative, and it won’t cause colony collapse disorder, or harm your pet. While it can take some time in order to eradicate fleas completely, sometimes up to several months, those fleas will be gone for good, and you won’t have harmed the environment and supported a GMO-promoting company in the process.
Bayer AG has had to pay over $750 million in damages to farmers to end legal battles over their GMO rice,. Should we really wait until the evidence is conclusive that its Advantix products are killing our pets? We already know that the company’s insecticide is killing our bees – we shouldn’t be supporting their chemical monopoly any longer.

Thank you ksp for this article. I was told  Advantix was one of the best to use. I most usually use Prevention,but that is probably not good for them either. This GMO business is a disaster for all life.

37 Million Bees Found Dead in Canada After Large GMO Crop Planting

37 Million Bees Found Dead in Canada After Large GMO Crop Planting





by Christina Sarich
Posted on November 9, 2014


The makers of neonicotinoids, the bee-killing insecticide that was banned all over Europe, won’t be able to refute this latest phenomenon. Millions of bees were found dead after GMO corn was planted in Ontario, Canada. This isn’t new news, but it should be known news.
The keeper of these bees, Dave Schuit, who produces honey, reported that he lost over 600 hives – around 37 million bees.

“Once the corn started to get planted our bees died by the millions,” Schuit said.
With increasing bee deaths and consumer petitions targeted to places like Home Depot and Lowe’s who sell neonics, the US Department of Agriculture has failed to ban neonicotinoids, manufactured primarily by Bayer CropScience Inc., as well as other biotech companies.
Two of Bayer’s best sellers are suspect this time around: Imidacloprid and Clothianidin. They are both known to seep into pollen and nectar, damaging beneficial insects such as bees.
The more widely they are used, the more bees seem to die.
Schuit’s report of dead bees is corroborated by other farmers, too. Nathan Carey is another local farmer who noticed a disappearance of bees on his farm this past Spring. There were so few that he could not count on them as he normally did to help pollinate his crops. He correlates their absence to the use of these toxic insecticides.
While many scientists are still unconvinced that “colony collapse disorder” (CCD) is caused by neonicotinoids, there has been a consecutive die-off of bees in the U.S. for seven years now – directly correlated to higher insecticide spraying.
Even US scientists have found 121 different pesticides in samples of bees, wax and pollen, lending credence to the notion that pesticides are in fact a problem.
Jeffery Pettis, of the ARS’s bee research laboratory, says:
“We believe that some subtle interactions between nutrition, pesticide exposure and other stressors are converging to kill colonies.”
A recently released study published in the Journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences described that neonicotinoid pesticides kill honeybees by damaging their immune system, making them unable to fight diseases and bacteria.
The study abstract concluded:
“The occurrence at sublethal doses of this insecticide-induced viral proliferation suggests that the studied neonicotinoids might have a negative effect at the field level. Our experiments uncover a further level of regulation of the immune response in insects and set the stage for studies on neural modulation of immunity in animals. Furthermore, this study has implications for the conservation of bees, as it will contribute to the definition of more appropriate guidelines for testing chronic or sublethal effects of pesticides used in agriculture.”
A third of everything we eat is pollinated by bees and other beneficial insects. This accounts for over 30 billion in the global economy. If bees die, our food supplies die, too. Here is a list of foods we would lose without the bees.
Bayer denies that their insecticides are causing CCD. Will they be responsible for feeding the world when 30% of our food supply is gone with the bees?
