Illinois Ag. Department Illegally Seizes Privately Owned Bees Resistant to GMO Poison

Terrence Ingram, a world renowned naturalist who once saved the Bald Eagle from being on the endangered species list, was recently met by the Illinois Agricultural Department which seized his privately-owned bees. The department seized his bees that were ‘resistant to GMO pesticides’ and killed the remaining healthy queen bees in his beehives.  

Ingram had been researching the effects of Roundup, the Monsanto franken-food best-selling herbicide meant to make crops more resilient to pests. Roundup itself has long list of negative effects, with the product even shown to kill human kidney cells. Much of the ill effects of Roundup are produced by the active ingredient, glyphosate.

Ingram has been raising his bees for 58 years and researching Roundup’s effects on the bees for 15+ years. “They ruined 15 years of my research,” he told Prairie Advocate, by stealing most of his stock. You can surmise, that the results of his research were not likely a glowing report on the benefits of GMO pesticides.

The Ag Department allegedly seized Ingram’s bees because they were stricken with a disease known as American foulbrood. However, Ingram said he could prove that this is simply not true, and intended to do so at a hearing in April. Unfortunately, his bees were seized in March and are MIA.

The department released this statement to Ingram:

“During a routine inspection of your honeybee colonies by … Inspectors Susan Kivikko and Eleanor Balson on October 23, 2011, the bacterial disease ‘American Foulbrood’ was detected in a number of colonies located behind your house…. Presence of the disease in some of your colonies was confirmed via test results from the USDA Bee Research Laboratory in Beltsville, Maryland that analyzed samples collected from your apiary….”

Monsanto will not be held to any legal action, not in any state in America, especially as it loses stable footing in countries like Hungary. With scientific evidence mounting every day against their faulty seeds, of course they would need to dismantle additional research which proves the long-term negative effects of their GMO crops. Ingram’s bees were ‘inspected’ without his presence and without a warrant. As government regulation of our freedom’s are increasingly suppressed, why are companies like Dow and Monsanto given free reign?

  1. Killing off bees kills off food reproduction. If this is happening to one person what makes us think it is not happening to others? Bees are dying off at an alarming rate. I have not seen a lot of bees in the garden this year.
    I buy honey from a keeper close to me and he was telling me his bees have been dying off but blames cell towers.
    I sent Henry another story How Did GMO Wheat End Up in Oregon Field?
    I have to ask if no one knows how these seeds got in the farmers field then they must have been sown by dropping them from the air or thrown from the road in a drive by. I may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer but I can figure out they are also killing off future generations? Weather it be buy seeds or bees.

  2. This bee farmer looks like he learned a hard lesson as to how these govt. agencies are trying to control everything. The guy looks like he is just another good guy that was robbed buy the ptb. This guy was ripped off and he will probobly never get restitution from the dept. of ag. much less monsanto or the dow co. They are too damned cheap. Monsanto and the Dow co. are our enemies and the farmers have got to start seeing that instead of beleiving in monsanto like they do just for their imediate profits. Monsanto needs to be put down along with all of their supporters in what ever way possible. Monsanto, dow and these others like them are intentionaly killing us all and they cannot stand anyone like this bee farmer or anyone like this bee farmer.

  3. Monsanto is so pathetic. Like a criminal mafia, they say, “Quick! Someone pay someone to get rid of that bee keeper. He and his bees are destroy our scheme to poison and depopulate the planet. Having him around exposes our products as unhealthy and his as healthy. We must get rid of him and his bees now! I don’t care how you do, but do it now or they’ll be hell to pay!”.

  4. I say train the bees to sting every one of them Monsanto agents with a silent but deadly sting. Make them run to the water like they do in Looney Tunes after they sting the shit out of them.

  5. They’ve been hand pollinating crops in China for some time now.

    No doubt all the pollution in their air is killing their bees off too.
