Report Says Active Ingredient In Monsanto's Weedkiller Roundup Is Harmful To Honeybees

Added: 25.09.2018 5:23 | 15 views | 0 comments

New research says one of the most common weedkillers is harmful to the bacteria found in the guts of honeybees which then makes them more prone to fatal infections, according to The Guardian. A new study published this week from researchers at the University of Texas at Austin said the active ingredient in the weedkiller made by Monsanto, Glyphosate, could be contributing to the global decline in bees and a loss of their habitat along with damages to the bees' microbiota. “We demonstrated that the abundances of dominant gut microbiota species are decreased in bees exposed to glyphosate at concentrations documented in the environment,” said Erick Motta and his colleagues from the University...

Common weed killer linked to bee deaths

Added: 24.09.2018 22:45 | 16 views | 0 comments

Honey bees exposed to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, lose some of the beneficial bacteria in their guts and are more susceptible to infection and death from harmful bacteria. Scientists believe this is evidence that glyphosate might be contributing to the decline of honey bees and native bees around the world.
