Death in the Beehive| 29mins
Director: Berndt Welz | Producer: Bilderfest
Focus Years: 2012 | Country: Germany
In summer 2008, billions of bees died in the area of the Oberrheingraben in Germany within a few hours, officially due to a malfunction of a sowing machine that accidentally distributed a big load of a new pesticide. This pesticide, belonging to the group of so-called Neonikotinoide, is suspected to have a deadly impact on bees. In the meantime, French scientists proved that this pesticide also damages the immune system and the navigation system of the bees. The death in the beehive is about the mass mortality of the bees, the importance of bees for food production and not least about the billion-dollar business volume of the chemical industry.
