Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), is a little understood phenomenon in which worker bees in a colony abruptly disappear: even the existence of this disorder remains disputed. Theories include environmental change-related stresses, malnutrition, unknown pathogens (i.e., disease), mites, agro-pesticides such as neonicotinoids or “neonics” for short, emissions from cellular phones or other man-made devices, and genetically modified (GM) crops.
Specifically, Monsanto’s genetically engineered, cornMon810 corn and chiefly, neonics, have strongly been implicated in CCD for years now. Out of an abundance of caution, Janus Pest Management has elected to eliminate neonic formulations from all bee removal services.
