Send this post everywhere, stop and stop this disaster that we all beekeepers live in. Strong poisons on crops poison our BEES. Farmers have chosen a road that has no backward return. 
If the Honey is lost, we are finished!

The greater value of the bee is found in its contribution to the pollination of plants, that is, the transport of pollen from the anthers of a flower to the position of another, resulting in fertilization, fruit making and ultimately the production of fruit and fruits, and also ensuring the reproduction of plants . The bee is responsible for polluting 70-75% of all crops. 
The economic benefit of the bee’s offer to pollination, according to studies in the US, is 60-143 times greater than the total value of its products.

Apart from the cultivated species, the bee pollinates thousands of wild plant species, which are part of the natural environment and its offer in this case is impossible to express in economic benefit. 

One of the serious problems in both Greek and world beekeeping is the poisoning of bees by the use of plant protection products (pesticides). 

Bees are poisoned either:

– by their direct contact with the pesticide following application to crops or wild vegetation, or 

– by harvesting polluted pollen or nectar or water.

The result of bee poisoning from pesticides is either their immediate death or the long-term reduced functioning of the various systems of their organism, which is why they do not do their job. 

We ask growers to be aware of:

1) proper use of plant protection products in order to comply with the instructions for use and precautions on their label, including precautions for the protection of bees (if required); 

2) sprays in beekeeping hours (afternoon), 

3) alternatives to weed control (cutting), 

4) avoiding sprays during flowering,

5) to inform the beekeepers of the area of ​​imminent spraying.
