Evidence: POISONING bees and the Manuka honey industry. NZ’s Dept of Conservation try to wriggle around the fact that 1080 is an insecticide – but DOC even registered it as such in NZ as wasp bait.

And here we have evidence of honeybees gathering poison. NZ has NO accredited test for 1080 in honey. Do you feel safe eating honey now? Tell DOC by email email@example.com
Is 1080 an insecticide? Here is the registration data for 1080 insect bait: Name:Fish paste containing 10 g sodium fluoroacetate/kgCAS Number: Synonyms:1.0% 1080 Wasp Paste, 1080Approval number:HSR002425. 1080 also sold in peanut butter paste as well as pellets. Check out the factory website www.pestoff.co.nz
1080 takes 1.5 to 2 hours to kill bees, enough to complete about 4 foraging trips.

Mapara South Road, NZ. Bees fed for 6 days from 14th September 2018.
(Above) 1 honeycomb tested Landcare Research Tongariro National Park 0.0046 ppm 1080 poison 2002 – 7 years after 1080 jam banned.
2 honeycomb samples tested LR Lab Tongariro National Park 0.009 ppm 1080 poison 2003 – 8 years after 1080 jam banned. No further 1080 tests despite this obvious threat to consumers. Other toxins found in bees from DOC “pest control” operations. 32 dead bees, washed prior to analysis 7.86 ug/g pindone 37 dead bees, washed prior to analysis 4.03 ug/g pindone 52 dead bees, washed prior to analysis 3.64 ug/g pindone 25 live bees, washed prior to analysis 0.74 ug/g pindone
1 of 2 bees found dead 90.3 ug/g pindone The highest concentration of 1080 detected in the honey was 15 ppb and subsequent tests showed a gradual decay down to 3 ppb after 59 days. The honey source that the samples were taken from would have eventually gone on sale after 16 weeks, hence there would not have been any detectable level of 1080 in the sale product, although under different circumstances, this time could be considerably shorter. Zero studies were done to see if the 1080 samples “lost” 1080 due to the toxin binding to the plastic sample pots – 1080 is well known for binding. What this could mean is the samples tested lower over time while the drums of honey remained high and were then sold. 1080 IN HONEY FROM POSSUM BAITS RAHOTU – TARANAKI Murray Lowe HEALTH PROTECTION OFFICER TARANAKI HEALTHCARE
