Millions of bees in the Cape Peninsula have died due to possible accidental poisoning…

Millions of bees in the Cape Peninsula have died due to possible accidental poisoning from agricultural activities. Vice-Chairperson of the Western Cape Bee Industry Association, Brendan Ashley-Cooper, says many farmers are uninformed about the effects of pesticides on bees. He says they have sent samples for testing and are expecting the results soon: “About a week and a half ago we started getting calls from beekeepers in the Cape Peninsula, Tokai, Constantia, Bergvliet area, reporting massive bee die-offs in front of their hives, piles and piles of dead bees. We’ve taken samples, sent off for testing to get to the bottom of it. It seems to be a very intense poison that has killed the bees over a very short period of time.”
