‘Safe’ Zika Pesticide Nukes Millions of Bees

By Jon Rappaport | No More Fake News

Bees and nectar

Millions of bees have just died in South Carolina, because Dorchester County officials decided to attack Zika mosquitoes from the air, from planes, with a pesticide called Naled.


The Washington Post reports, in an article headlined: “‘Like it’s been nuked’: Millions of bees dead after South Carolina sprays for Zika mosquitoes.”

“The county acknowledged the bee deaths Tuesday. ‘Dorchester County is aware that some beekeepers in the area that was sprayed on Sunday lost their beehives,’ Jason Ward, county administrator, said in a news release. He added, according to the Charleston Post and Courier, ‘I am not pleased that so many bees were killed.’

That’s the highest degree of outrage County Administrator Ward can muster? He’s not pleased?

Who said this Naled pesticide was safe? None other than the CDC. Sort of.

On the agency’s web page titled “Zika Virus: Information on aerial spraying,”we have several remarkable and inconsistent statements, obviously designed to straddle the fence and cover the agency and pesticide companies:

“Spraying Naled can kill bees outside of their hives at the time of spraying; therefore, spraying is limited to dawn or dusk when bees are inside their hives…”

“Because Naled breaks down quickly, it does not pose a risk to the honey beepopulations…”

“Studies show that honey production between hives in treated and untreated sites did not show significantly different quantities of honey over the course of a season…” [But suppose millions of bees are killed and their colonies are destroyed?]

“For additional protection, urban bee keepers inside the spray zone can cover their hives when spraying occurs…”

A masterpiece of slippery contradiction. Naled is safe, but it isn’t, but it is.

Regardless, Dorchester County, in South Carolina, just learned a lesson about pesticide safety.

And for what? To kill mosquitoes purportedly carrying the Zika virus.

This is the virus that hasn’t been proved to cause anything. Zika. I have covered this hoax extensively in past articles. In a nutshell, no researchers anywhere in the world have been able to demonstrate a strong correlation between the presence of Zika and cases of the birth defect called microcephaly. The correlation isn’t there.

  1. I guess these fools didn’t get the memo. Don’t kill the bee’s.

  2. Rick Alan Rick Alan says:

    And the Republicans in Congress will not give the CDC a dime unless these perverts can tell women what the can and can’t do with bodies .

  3. Dumber then rocking horse shit, what a bunch of dopes.

  4. unfortunately, SC people do not understand that the death of bees mean their own mortality. we are ranked 49th in “undereducated” for a reason.

  5. All done to make reliance on gmo crops as no bees means no natural crops

  6. IDIOTS. Guess who released the Zika carrying mosquitoes to begin with? The same morons who introduced killer bees. Division of Monsanto. See the connection, here? Selling chemicals.

  7. Stop giving suicidal people money…

  8. Very sad, how money comes first hand in hand with ignorance, volatile combination..

  9. Don’t they do any environmental study before nailing the Zika mosqitoes with Naled? Do they take into consideration what else can be affected by the sprays? The killing of the bees directly affects us…and one fine day they will wipe out ‘humanity. They couldn’t get more dumber with this reckless act. The mosquitoes could have been smoked out.

  10. Stacy Dee Stacy Dee says:

    They are now spraying central Florida.

  11. I don’t know what to say I’m so disgusted.

  12. We wasting money. U not going to kill all the mosquitoes that has Zika. Best thing to do is spray yourself with Deep Woods Off. Go about your Day.

  13. Nothing to like about this post.
    A half-wit would know spraying Zika virus poison is going to kill bees.
    Men in suits with blown out bellies allow for this.
    Can’t be called scientists for the good of man.

  14. US-authorities are insane. Norwegian authorities are brainless and follow the big brothers. Well they follow mostly the EU. In this case the EU may be somewhat better than the US, but having authorities unable to think is inherently bad.

  15. They know what the spraying will do…is it really to control the zika virus?…I have my doubts…

  16. The misquitoes don’t cause the birth defects. The pesticides do.

  17. MW Simpson MW Simpson says:

    THE CAMPAIGN TO FDEP-OIG IS ACTUALLY WORKING BUT WE NEED MORE SIGNATURES TO MAKE A HUGE (10,000 NAME) DIFFERENCE IN COMPLAINT(S), EVERY SIGNATURE COUNTS AS ONE COMPLAINT AND THEY HAVE A COPY TO OBSERVE!

  18. Dumb asses now you can kill everyone when the bees go we go.

  19. If it kills the bees……… Hmmm.
