I'm re-reading these old threads and the tale is true .We have had a massive increase in the amount of GE canola planted around here this year .And I do have trouble pollinating some things .I did have several rogue hives of Eoropean honey bees in hollow Grey Box trees that have now disappeared for whatever reason ,very worrying .
But ,I have had native bees back for the first time in ten years . We have quite a bit of cape weed in our lawn that has spread from an errant neighbour ,and its full of native bees when the flowers are out ,so are the gazzinias .I'm still trying to track them and hope they are here on my place as many small native herbage plants need the smaller bees to pollinate them .
As for Monsanto ,unfortunately for us ,their chairman , board members and shareholders have already mutated into greedy swill-drinking pigs !!! -and we wallow in their faeces !!
