In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Agriculture and Forestry - April 3, 2014


The senators continue their study on the importance of bees and bee health in the production of honey, food and seed in Canada. Dr. Dave Shutler, a professor in the department of biology at Acadia University, believes honey bee losses can be attributed to stress. He explains the main stresses for bees as being transportation, nutrition, pesticides and parasites. In the second hour the senators hear from Brent Ash, owner and operator of Ash Apiaries, who believes the biggest challenge is being able to source bees for replacement because there is a shortage of available bees. The committee also hears from Peter Awram, owner and operator of Honeyview Farm. He describes that disease is a major problem in the bee industry.
