The bees are in terrible trouble.

They need a good lawyer – one who is on their side.

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful country called Oblivion.

It had everything growing in it to make its people happy and healthy: raspberries, almonds, peaches, apricots, blueberries, cranberries, lavender, thyme, irises, roses, tulips, daffodils…the list seemed endless.

But it did end, because some of the Thieves of Oblivion wanted to sell all of these wonderful things, and to force Nature to produce more and more and more of them.

These Thieves, running a corporation called BearGenics, had a conflict of interest with Nature. They tampered with the genetics of crop plants.

They never gave a thought to the fact that without honey bees, none of these plants would grow. The Thieves poisoned the plants, and in so doing, poisoned the honey bees.

That’s what happens when you leave the bear guarding the beehive.

The Bear Guarding the Beehive shows a lawyer coming to the defense of her clients: honey bees. The bees face huge legal, scientific, and ecological challenges to their very survival, and the author lays them out quickly and efficiently, with photographs to illustrate each detail. This book is a highly articulate and useful tool for understanding the hazards of neonicotinoids, colony collapse disorder, and more.
