An Illinois beekeeper with more than a decade's worth of expertise about how to successfully raise organic, chemical-free bees is the latest victim of flagrant government tyranny.
According to the Prairie Advocate,
Terrence "Terry" Ingram of Apple River, Ill., owner of
Apple Creek Apiaries, recently had his bees and beehives stolen from
him by the Illinois Department of Agriculture (IDofA),
as well as more than 15 years' worth of research proving
Roundup to be the cause of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD)
Ingram explained that his bees would not
touch the comb, and asked Kivikko if it could be tested for chemical
When the test allegedly came back
positive, Kivikko proceeded to get the ball rolling on a witch hunt
that would eventually lead to the illegal seizure and destruction of
Ingram's personal property.
...for his research linking Roundup to CCD
He later determined that Roundup
sprayings near his property were to blame, which prompted him to
actively research the subject and closely monitor his hives in
conjunction with this research from that point onward.
He also used this information and his many years of experience to develop and refine ways of growing strong, chemical-free bees in spite of Roundup sprayings, a move that apparently upset IDofA, which operates primarily to serve the interests of chemical companies rather than the interests of the people.
