God made an amazing Earth that is too complex and beautiful for Atheist’s to wrap their head around. God has designed insects, animals and human-beings with the ability to adapt to their environment.
In this article, honeybees have been dying off due to man-made chemicals. However, it looks as if Honeybeekeepers are able to build more colonies by separating larger hives into smaller ones. This forces the hives to re-build their respective colonies by forcing them to reproduce.
This is making the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency look into banning neonic pesticides because of the extreme measures honeybee keepers are having to go in order to maintain healthy bee colonies.
2 Peter 3:5 – For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
Bayer Neonic Pesticides Killing Bees
Bayer states on its website that “no adverse effects to bee colonies were ever observed in field studies at field-realistic exposure conditions.”
Bayer has been shut down by journal Science. In the study, scientists monitored bees — honeybees and two types of wild bees — at 33 sites across Europe, in the United Kingdom, Germany and Hungary. At each site, the bees were placed near large fields of canola. Some of the fields contained canola grown from seeds that were treated with neonicotinoid pesticides, along with a standard fungicide. Other fields were planted with canola treated only with fungicides.
The study confirmed that damage was being caused by pesticides.

Honeybees Thrive From Colony Collapse Disorder
Colony Collapse Disorder losses are down 27% from 2016
The number of U.S. honeybees, a critical component in the agriculture industry, rose in 2017 from a year earlier, and deaths of the insects attributed to a mysterious malady that’s affected hives in North America and Europe declined, according a U.S. Department of Agriculture honeybee health survey released Tuesday.
The number of commercial U.S. honeybee colonies rose 3 percent to 2.89 million as of April 1, 2017 compared with a year earlier, the Agriculture Department reported.
Still, more than two-fifths of beekeepers said mites were harming their hives, and with pesticides and other factors still stressing bees, the overall increase is largely the result of constant replenishment of losses, the study showed.
Environmental groups have expressed alarm over the 90 percent decline during the past two decades in the population of pollinators, from wild bees to Monarch butterflies. Some point to a class of pesticides called neonicotinoids as a possible cause, a link rejected by Bayer AG and other manufacturers.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is reviewing neonicotinoids, proposing bans on spraying them and several dozen other pesticides in fields where bees have been brought in to pollinate a crop.
