(Hensall Ont Canada)
We are in Huron county in Ontario Canada and have just had a suspected bee kill in the area. Treated corn seed was used and planted with a air seeder and the bees were about 600 feet from the field. It was planted Friday night and Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon the bees were rolling out of the hive and dieing. On the Monday they were throwing out brood.
The scarey part is that by Monday night a lot of the dead bees and brood had disappeared. If the beekeeper did not have the bees in the back yard and was home to see it it would have gone unnoticed and would be wondering what was happening to the spring build up.
