There were fewer and fewer food sources, but more pesticides on the Planzen which harm the bees.

  The living conditions for bees are getting worse

" The living conditions for bees are getting worse ," says beekeeper Berthold Tholema from Collinghorst . Especially damaging pesticides and kill the animals . But if the bees die out, and the man has no long life .Collinghorst - It's about more than a few dozen jars of honey . "Without bees nothing runs when there are no more bees , it's soon for the people over," says Berthold Tholema . The beekeeper from Collinghorst is with this statement in good company : " If the bee disappears again from the earth, the man has to live only four years. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants , no more animals , no more man " , Albert Einstein explained the value of the industrious little creatures . From their end , people are hopefully still far away, but they work every day - white Tholema : " The living conditions for bees are getting worse . There is less food, more pesticides that harm the bees and kill them, " explains the 64- year-old.The Collinghorster should know. His father and grandfather kept bees . He helped as a boy in beekeeping with , took over the peoples of his father. " Beekeepers have also had times easier ," he grins . But the work that brings him his hobby , it's not . The only symptom of the disease itself : "Previously, the meadows were here colorful, the bees have always found enough food . Today, the end of May is closing , "he says . Then he invites his sticks in the car and drives it to Mecklenburg- Vorpommern : " As the bees go in the rape , then in the wildflowers that Cornflower . " Such niches of versatility but are now rare .In Oberledinger country the animals come in many places only to corn. " And that is stained. This is a neurotoxin - that take the bees when they drink in the morning from the dew drops on the maize plants . Many animals die from it " Other retardants are indeed bienenungiftig , but" . They are mixed with adhesive , so that the poison does not bead up by the plants. If the bees are in the field when spraying , they stick firmly to the plants and die , "said Tholema . 20 Peoples of Collinghorster - 20 queens who lay around 2000 eggs daily . Bees live only a few weeks , still a people business grows over the summer on good cook 60000-80000 animals to . At its home base in the hedgerows are an important food source for them. " Alder , fireweed , blackberry : The growing here," says Tholema offering in his apiary honey hedge bank .

Even small amounts of pesticides affect the nervous system of bees , as a study shows . It supports reservations neonicotinoids in plant protection.

Even small amounts of various pesticides affect the nervous system of animals, as a team led by neurobiologist Randolf Menzel from the University of Berlin in the online magazine Plos One reported ( Fischer et al. , 2014) .Looking for the perfect food source to bees orient using the sun compass and develop their flight routes around the hive an internal map . That's pretty accurate, easy insects are therefore not dissuade from the right path . In the experiment, the scientists tested to Menzel therefore, is whether , and if so how much influence three different pesticides, the orientation capability.display Specifically, they examined the effect of the two currently banned pesticides imidacloprid and clothianidin as well as the plant protection product thiacloprid . Thus, the researchers trained a group of bees , first, directly to fly an untreated feeding place 400 meters from the hive. Then the researchers captured the bees and left them to offset vacancy. The result: Although Menzel and his team have pulled off her direct way home, the bees , the animals were rapidly returns to its hive .
