Anti-Zika Spraying Kills Millions Of Honeybees Across South Carolina

Across parts of the US over the past few weeks, a campaign allegedly to prevent the spread of the Zika virus has been underway. We reported just last month with video footage of the planes spraying in Miami. Well Miami has not been the only lands spread with toxic insecticides, South Carolina has also been sprayed and the result is nothing but horrific.

RT News Reports:

Millions of South Carolina’s bees have unexpectedly fallen victim to the US fight against the Zika virus. Hives of bees dropped dead in Dorchester County, attempting to flee an insecticide attack that had primarily targeted mosquitoes.

“My bee yard looks like it’s been nuked,” local Juanita Stanley told AP, describing the devastating effect of the aerial spraying.

Stanley, for whom bees is a major income, is a co-owner of Flowertown Bee Farm and Supply in Summerville. They have lost nearly 2,5 million honeybees from 46 hives.

On Sunday morning, parts of Dorchester County were sprayed with Naled, a common insecticide that kills mosquitoes on contact. In the US, it has been used for nearly six decades, since 1959, primarily to control adult mosquito population.

Given that Dorchester County has seen an increase in insects due to rains and floods, humidity, a mild winter and an extremely hot summer, to local officials it seemed like a helpful move to prevent Zika. Especially after four travel-related cases of the virus were confirmed in Summerville. As of August 26, South Carolina had a total of 43 confirmed Zika cases.

Officials have issued a statement Tuesday, saying they were “aware that some beekeepers in the area that was sprayed on Sunday lost their beehives.” The County has opened a call center to receive information on losses related to mosquito spraying.

In an attempt to stop the spread of what historically was deemed a harmless virus, they are spraying the Environment and it’s inhabitants with a toxic substance which is banned in much of Europe and is linked to Fetus damage among other health issues.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and CDC both say that naled is safe to use in small amounts for the purpose of killing mosquitoes but there are American environmental scientists who disagree. In fact, their beliefs run the gamut, spraying is a “necessary evil” to totally “irresponsible”. – Healthnut News

“On August 4, Dr. Elvia Melendez-Ackerman, an environmental biologist at the University of Puerto Rico’s Rio Piedras campus, sent City of Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado a letter demanding Miami stop spraying naled. We all have heard of the intention to fumigate Miami with naled, and with all due respect, we are starting to see in Florida a repeat of what we went through: Public servants not reading the science that is in front of them,” writes Melendez-Ackerman, who was active in the movement to ban naled in Puerto Rico.”
