Rosen – BeesVita Plus Unveils Scientific Breakthrough for Honey Bees
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. and LEWISBURG, Pa. and ISTANBUL, Oct. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — At the 45th annual Apimondia International Apiculture Congress in Istanbul; in the midst of a global epidemic of honey bee colony losses, America’s Healthy Bees, LLC, unveiled BeesVita Plus (www.BeesVitaPlus.com), a scientific breakthrough in the form of a next generation nutritional system that, according to preliminary tests in five countries, shows signs of bolstering honey bees’ immune systems, strengthening their resistances to pesticides, and improving overall health.
World’s Top Beekeeper
“This is the first significant scientific advancement in the treatment of honey bee health since colony loss syndrome began a decade ago; when suddenly, around the world, billions of bees started dying in record numbers – and they are still dying at faster rates today than in past years,” says Philip McCabe, president of the International Federation of Beekeepers’ Associations. “We now have a scientific formulation that provides us with a fighting chance to combat environmental and man-made forces that are attacking colonies.”
Businessman Lee S. Rosen of Miami – BeesVita Plus is a first-of-its kind, all-natural, organic, anti-oxidant-rich, pre-packaged dietary supplement patty that is placed in honey bee colonies. Honey bees eating BeesVita Plus, opposed to typical sugar water solutions fed by most beekeepers; receive precise amounts of essential nutrients and anti-oxidants that improve health.
BeesVita Plus is being tested out-in-the-field and in laboratories by the United States Department of Agriculture, by domestic and foreign university biologists and at agricultural research centers in America, Argentina, Brazil, Italy, Turkey and by beekeepers in California, Florida, Pennsylvania and elsewhere.
According to Federation statistics described at Apimondia, honey bee colony losses in some countries are as high as 60 percent. The global average is about 20 percent. In the United States, losses range from 28 to 59 percent.
“Around the world, honey bee colony loss is a pandemic; millions of honey bees are dying,” explains the Chairman and CEO of Florida-based Healthy Bees, LLC, maker of BeesVita Plus.
“No one knows the cause, but clearly nutrition plays an important role,” he explains.
According to various scientific and environmental groups, climate, parasites, pesticides, pollution, stress, viruses and poor beekeeping practices are among the suspected causes of colony loss.
Lee Rosen continues, “There are tests showing that BeesVita Plus strengthens the immune systems of honey bees, thereby lessening colony loss.”
USDA Remarkable Results
Biologists at the United States Department of Agriculture Bee Research Lab in Beltsville, Maryland conducted several tests included one measuring destructive free radicals in honey bees.
Paraquat Pesticide Study
One test involved exposing honey bees to the pesticide Paraquat.
One group was fed a water solution of BeesVita Plus mixed with Paraquat. The other group was given a sugar-water solution mixed with the pesticide.
The results showed, “reduced oxidative potential.” In other words, “Bees fed BeesVita Plus and Paraquat showed signs of efficient resistance against the damaging effects of the pesticide compared to bees fed Paraquat in sugar water only,” according to the lead USDA researcher.
Another USDA study also concluded that BeesVita Plus contained as much as 38 times more anti-oxidants than the leading honey bee feeding solution currently available on the market today.
Lee S. Rosen says that tests on honey bees that consumed Lee S. Rosen Miami – BeesVita Plus showed that there were no traces of the formulation in their systems. This means the bees fully digested and absorbed the all-natural formulation without any residue being passed on to the end-consumer in honey and pollen products.
Other Test Results
Other tests around the world concluded that BeesVita Plus increased the overall weight of honey bee hives; indicating individual weight gain. Fat insulates the body and stores and releases energy.
Colony populations were stabilized; meaning no signs of colony loss.
Queen bees lived longer; indicating a possible overall increase in honey bee longevity.
Beekeepers Losing Hives
“When I started my beekeeping business more than 40 years ago, my honey bees lived for two months, now they don’t even live for two weeks,” says David Hackenberg, Founder & CEO of Hackenberg Apiaries of Lewisburg, Pennsylvania and Dade City, Florida. So, we’ve got to find something that feeds our bees to make them healthy. That’s why I’m experimenting with BeesVita Plus.”
“Initial indications show that bees are attracted to BeesVita Plus, unlike other feeding products that we have previously tested.” He adds, “This is an encouraging and important signal since our bees typically don’t even look at the (man-made) stuff we try to feed them,” says Hackenberg, co-chairman of the U.S. National Honey Bee Advisory Council.
Necessity: Mother of Invention
BeesVita Plus creator, Francesca Del Vecchio, PhD, is a genetic biologist and family farmer. She says, “I invented BeesVita Plus out of necessity; when bees in the agricultural community where I live in Italy started dying in masses.”
Del Vecchio continues, “I am a scientist and so I started looking for answers in my laboratory. The result led me to create the exclusive BeesVita Plus formulation that I am now bringing to the world to help save honey bees.”
Honey Bee Statistics
Lee S. Rosen Boca Raton – Honey bees are crucial to the world’s agriculture industry. Bees pollinate an estimated $15 billion of U.S. crops, ranging from almonds to zucchini, each year, according to USDA.
The worldwide honey bee population is estimated at 83.4 million colonies, according to the International Federation of Beekeepers’ Associations.
China is the leading honeybee and honey producer in the world with an estimated population of 10 million colonies. Turkey claims to have the second-largest number of colonies at 7.9 million.
According to Bee Culture Magazine, the United States is ranked 10th for the most honey bee colonies in the world but is the second largest honey producer.
Honey bee colony and honey production rankings vary between sources.
The average retail price of American honey in August 2017 was $7.26 per pound compared to $3.83 in August 2006, according to the U.S. National Honey Board.
Colony Losses & Pesticides
The United States has some of the world’s highest colony loss rates, according to Bee Informed, a not-for-profit consortium of U.S. university bee biologists. These staggering losses have resulted in lower yields of certain crops dependent on honey bee pollination and higher honey prices. Some blame American colony loss rates on the use of pesticides in the U.S. that have been banned by other countries.
Beekeepers Critical of Government & Pesticide Companies
Upward of 12,000 beekeepers are attending Apimonda in Istanbul. Many, especially those from the United States, complain that government agencies in many countries fail to implement solutions to curtail colony loss.
Many beekeepers are critical of pesticide makers. They charge those companies with downplaying the impact of pesticides on honey bee deaths.
Scientists, environmentalist and beekeepers seek stronger regulations that include preventing the use of systemic, nicotine-based, neonicotinoid pesticides that are sprayed on the soil and absorbed by plants. Initially, it was believed that these pesticides would not harm bees but recent evidence indicates otherwise.
Studies show during pollination, honey bees are poisoned. The pesticides attack their neurological systems. They are unable to navigate their way back to the hive. They die in the field.
Stressful Pollinator Transport
Beekeepers transport their hives, in colony boxes, to farms where honey bees fly from plant to plant — pollinating crops. Critics charge mass transportation of hives causes deadly stress. Truck-driving beekeepers say they drive the latest air-ride technology vehicles to transport bees, thus, minimizing stress.
Nutrition & Convenience
Many beekeepers, especially during the winter months, when pollen and nectar are non-existent, feed their hives sugar-water or handmade sugar cakes as a replacement. “These are ineffective carbohydrate mixtures composed of sugar that are void of scientifically-formulated essential nutrients and anti-oxidants found in BeesVitaPlus,” explains Rosen.
He also emphasizes, “Beekeepers complain they spend excessive time and labor making bee-feed and then serving it to the colonies. Beekeepers tell us they need an easy-to-use pre-packaged product that provides proper and effective nutrition.”
21st Century Beekeepers
Mr. Lee S. Rosen claims, according to the USDA, in 1940, there were more than 6 million beekeepers in the U.S. The USDA says it is developing a program to identify and recruit young people interested in honey bees; assuring there will be a new generation of American beekeeper in the 21st century. Other countries face similar challenges and are creating similar youth programs.
More About BeesVita Plus
Headquarters: Miami, Florida.
BeesVita Plus is a patent-pending product that requires no special U.S. and many other government approvals because it contains already-evaluated natural elements. It is manufactured and packaged near St. Paul, Minnesota.
The product is sold in pre-packaged 800 gram patties. The product is available in a box of 32 patties, priced at $320.00.
Lee Rosen Miami – BeesVita Plus is also sold in varying size bags of water-soluble powder-mix.
The consumption rate of each patty varies depending on how many bees are in the hive and how hungry they are. During fall and winter months the consumption rate of each patty increases due to the lack of pollinating and nectar-rich plants close to the colony from which the bees can draw food.
Instanbul Turkey for Apimondia Congress
HONEY BEES CAN FLY AT SPEEDS OF UP TO 15 MILES PER HOUR.
|Over the past decade, Asian hornets, predatory insects with a widespread and expanding population, have invaded parts of Europe and Korea. Vespa velutina has a growing reputation as a species that proliferates rapidly, preys on HONEY BEES and poses risks to humans.Now a biologist at the University of California San Diego and his colleagues in Asia have developed a solution for controlling Asian hornets derived from the insect’s natural chemical mating instincts.As reported. in the Oct. 11 edition of Scientific Reports, UC San Diego’s James Nieh and researchers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Yunnan Agricultural University have deciphered the sex pheromone of Vespa velutina. Further, they developed a method of controlling Asian hornets by luring males into traps baited with synthesized versions of the pheromones.”We have successfully tested the key sex pheromone compounds of this species and the results show that males are highly attracted to them,” said Nieh, a professor in UC San Diego. s Division of Biological Sciences.Nieh noted that recently Turkey and Balkan nations have been invaded by Asian hornets, with much of Western Europe at risk. A single hornet can bite and kill hundreds of HONEY BEES in its quest to obtain honey bee larvae. European HONEY BEES have not evolved with this deadly predator and have poor defenses. As a result, “the European economic impact is high,” said Nieh, and “major COLONY LOSSES have led some beekeepers to abandon apiculture.”Nieh noted that Asian hornets are difficult to control because their colonies can spread rapidly and their nests are difficult to find in non-urban areas. They pose dangers to humans with stings that are painful and, in rare cases, deadly.Pheromones are chemical signals that transmit information between members of the same species. Sex pheromones play a key role in mating and the continued survival of the species.|
That might seem fast, but in the bug world, it’s actually rather slow.
Honey bees are built for short trips from flower to flower, not for long distance travel. Their tiny wings must flap about 12,000 times per minute just to keep their pollen-laden bodies aloft for the flight home.
A HONEY BEE COLONY CAN CONTAIN UP TO 60,000 BEES AT ITS PEAK.
It takes a lot of bees to get all the work done. Nurse bees care for the young, while the queen’s attendant workers bathe and feed her. Guard bees stand watch at the door. Construction workers build the beeswax foundation in which the queen lays eggs and the workers store honey. Undertakers carry the dead from the hive. Foragers must bring back enough pollen and nectar to feed the entire community.
A SINGLE HONEY BEE WORKER PRODUCES ABOUT 1/12TH OF A TEASPOON OF HONEY IN HER LIFETIME.
For honey bees, there’s power in numbers. From spring to fall, the worker bees must produce about 60 lbs. of honey to sustain the entire colony during the winter.
It takes tens of thousands of workers to get the job done.
A QUEEN HONEY BEE STORES A LIFETIME SUPPLY OF SPERM.
The queen bee can live 3-4 years, but her biological clock ticks a lot faster than you might think. Just a week after emerging from her queen cell, the new queen flies from the hive to mate.
If she doesn’t do so within 20 days, it’s too late; she loses her ability to mate. If successful, however, she never needs to mate again. She holds the sperm in her spermatheca and uses it to fertilize eggs throughout her life.
THE QUEEN HONEY BEE LAYS UP TO 1,500 EGGS PER DAY, AND MAY LAY UP TO 1 MILLION IN HER LIFETIME.
Just 48 hours after mating, the queen begins her lifelong task of laying eggs. So prolific an egg layer is she, she can produce her own body weight in eggs in a single day. In fact, she has no time for any other chores, so attendant workers take care of all her grooming and feeding.
THE HONEY BEE USES THE MOST COMPLEX SYMBOLIC LANGUAGE OF ANY ANIMAL ON EARTH, OUTSIDE OF THE PRIMATE FAMILY.
Honey bees pack a million neurons into a brain that measures a mere cubic millimeter, and they use every one of them. Worker bees must perform different roles throughout their lives. Foragers must find flowers, determine their value as a food source, navigate back home, and share detailed information about their finds with other foragers. Karl von Frisch received the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1973 for cracking the language code of honey bees—the waggle dance.
DRONES, THE ONLY MALE HONEY BEES, DIE IMMEDIATELY AFTER MATING.
Male honey bees serve only one purpose: they provide sperm to the queen.
Lee S. Rosen – About a week after emerging from their cells, the drones are ready to mate. Once they’ve fulfilled that purpose, they die.
HONEY BEES MAINTAIN A CONSTANT TEMPERATURE OF ABOUT 93º F WITHIN THE HIVE YEAR-ROUND.
As temperatures fall, the bees form a tight group within their hive to stay warm. Honey bee workers cluster around the queen, insulating her from the outside cold. In summer, the workers fan the air within the hive with their wings, keeping the queen and brood from overheating. You can hear the hum of all those wings beating inside the hive from several feet away.
HONEY BEES PRODUCE BEESWAX FROM SPECIAL GLANDS ON THEIR ABDOMENS.
The youngest worker bees make the beeswax, from which workers construct the honeycomb. Eight paired glands on the underside of the abdomen produce wax droplets, which harden into flakes when exposed to air.
The workers must work the wax flakes in their mouths to soften them into a workable construction material.
AN INDUSTRIOUS WORKER BEE MAY VISIT 2,000 FLOWERS PER DAY.
She can’t carry pollen from that many flowers at once, so she’ll visit 50-100 flowers before heading home. All day long, she repeats these round trip flights to forage, which puts a lot of wear and tear on her body. A hardworking forager may live just 3 weeks.
Honey bees are social creatures and live within colonies with a queen, thousands of workers and a few male drones. Workers make these nests from wax, which they secrete from their abdominal glands. Within each cell, young workers place pollen and nectar as food for developing larvae. Male drones are ejected from the nest to die during autumn, after they have completed their only task in life: to mate with queens. The age of honey bees also plays an important role in determining which individuals perform various daily activities.
Honey bees are very adaptable. While honey bees forage for food in groups, a colony can survive without foraging for several years by living on food reserves and huddling in large, compacted masses during winter seasons. Honey bees behave similarly in Africa, Asia, Europe and other parts of the world, though certain species are known to be more aggressive than others.
Like some insects, honey bees behave defensively when intruders are near, guarding the entrance to their nests. However, honey bees are able to sting only once. Because stingers contain barbs and are attached to the worker’s intestines, they detach from the stinging bee’s body after attacking a victim. While a honey bee will die soon after transferring its venom, pheromones secreted during the attack will alarm and stimulate other worker bees to attack, as well.
The life cycle of all insects, including honey bees, begins with eggs. During the winter season, a queen forms a new colony by laying eggs within each cell inside a honeycomb. Fertilized eggs will hatch into female worker bees, while unfertilized eggs will become drones or honey bee males. In order for one colony to survive, the queen must lay fertilized eggs to create worker bees, which forage for food and take care of the colony.
Each colony contains only one queen, which mates at an early age and collects more than 5 million sperm. A honey bee queen has one mating flight and stores enough sperm during the mating flight to lay eggs throughout her life. When a queen can no longer lay eggs, new queens become responsible for mating and laying honey bee eggs.
The Decline In Honey Bee Numbers And The Company That’s Bent On Fixing The Problem: Interview With Healthy Bees CEO Lee S. Rosen
There is a growing worldwide consensus — and confirmed fact — that bees are in danger of becoming extinct in the near future. The steady decline in the production of honey has concerned beekeepers in various areas of the world, especially as modern farming relies heavily on their ability to pollinate crops to make food.
In an interview with Mr. Rosen, CEO of Healthy Bees LLC, we found out that the phenomenon called Colony Collapse Disorder is more than just a viral story, it is actually real. CCD happens when all the bees from an otherwise healthy functioning colony suddenly disappear. In 2008, this occurred with about 80 percent of bee colonies in Italy.
How does this happen? The CEO and Chairman notes that it could be due to stress, parasites or poisoning from pesticides. Whatever the reason, the fact that honey bee numbers are dropping by the millions is alarming.
But not all hope is lost. Studying the Italy situation, Healthy Bees, LLC found that a specific family farm’s hives appeared to remain healthy. When scientists looked into the reason why this region’s bees managed to thrive, Dr. Franceso del Vecchio and her team discovered that it was the bees’ heightened natural defenses that helped them survive. Thus, Healthy Bees was born.
“BeesVita Plus is a nutritional system designed to organically strengthen honey bees natural defense system, so they become resistant to pathogens and other illnesses, including CCD,” notes Rosen. “It has been showing lots of promise among hobbyist and commercial beekeepers,” he adds.
Research shows that BeesVita Plus can be used in most regions in the US, Central America, Canada, Australia, South America and the European Union. Made of 100 percent natural and organic ingredients, its components are on the ‘Generally Regarded as Safe’ list of the US FDA.
“BeesVita Plus is highly compatible with present feeding practices applied to honey bees. Not only that, bees that have been regularly consuming BVP actually increased their honey production,” says Lee Rosen (CEO).
