Millions of bees die in Murcia

18/05/2018


Hear it!

In spring 2017 we echoed bad news for the environment and humanity:

Millions of bees died in Murcia poisoned by pesticides as a result of the treatments that were carried out by fruit growers in the area. It happened at the beginning of February as reported by the news published by "La Crónica del Pajarito.es" in Mazarrón, today, the domain of conventional industrialised agriculture where pesticide treatments are administered increasingly early in the year.

This has been reported by Greenpeace and beekeepers in the area.

Some say that the death of the bees is due to a pathogen (virus or fungus) and not to pesticides. Maybe it's due to both ... or maybe not.

The fact is that (and luckily - although we do not believe it is a coincidence) on our farm we have not registered any dead bees. The bees that inhabit our farm live happily because they are far from any source of contamination. That is one of the great advantages of cultivating in a protected natural area. The Natura 2000 Network is a real sanctuary for pollinating insects: a refuge for them and a benefit for humanity.
