A recent article in The Atlantic has a number of beekeepers discussing how polyethylenes can be harmful to bees.
While most of us probably know about the harmful effects of DDT and PCBs, the issue of pesticides being a problem for bees has never really been a major one.
And while the use of DDTs and PCB’s has been declining in the US, there are a number places in the world where it is still common.
The problem is that polyethylenic and other chemical-containing products are still used in agriculture, and it’s hard to imagine a world where beekeepers are not using them.
The article is based on research conducted by the UK’s University of Sheffield.
Researchers collected data from the UK market for pesticides and other chemicals used to kill or control bees, including dicamba, glyphosate, and 2,4-D.
The results revealed that pesticide use was on the rise in Britain in 2015, which means that the number of pesticides in use has increased in just a few years.
A similar rise has been reported in countries around the world, such as the US and Australia.
But there’s another big difference between the US in the 1800s and the UK in the 20th century: the amount of pesticide in use.
While the US was known for its vast pesticide production during the Industrial Revolution, the UK didn’t start using pesticides until the mid-20th century.
This makes sense if you consider the time scale of the Industrial Age.
In the US it was around a year after the end of the Great War.
In Europe, it was in the 1920s.
In Australia, pesticides were only in use for about 20 years before being phased out.
It’s a very small timeframe, and there’s no reason to believe it would be sustainable over the long term.
So what’s the takeaway?
The authors suggest that if you want to use pesticides for your own bees, there’s nothing wrong with using them as long as you know the chemicals are safe.
But if you’re just buying them for your garden or yard, don’t buy them unless you have the proper paperwork.
You can also be safe with other products like wax, wax pellets, or paper mulch that contain chemicals.
