ape mortaNew bee massive death registered due to clear and indisputable symptoms of poisoning by chemical molecules in an apiary site in the hills of Piacenza (Municipality of Borgonuovo Tidone). In the apiary surroundings there were just two main sources of foraging: alfalfa and corn in the bloom.

The most likely hypothesis is that bee death has been caused by the treatment of maize seeds with the insecticide Santana produced by Sumitomo Chemical Italy, containing the neonicotinoid clothianidin.
