Due to the difficulties that bees are facing recently, beekeeping and the attitude towards these animals is undergoing a change. The old paradigms do not entirely work anymore, new ways have yet to be found. A lot of contemporary valuable knowledge and experience can be found online – however has to be consumed with a grain of salt:

In February 2013, EFSA (European Food Safety Agency) acknowledges that three neonicotinoids are to be classified as toxic to bees. A ban of these substances for 2 years should be voted for on a European level on 25th of February 2013.

As a reaction, Bayer und Syngenta – the main producers of pesticides containing these substances – threaten with massive lawsuits in case of prohibition of the substances. A study spreads fear for the loss of 50 000 jobs.
Some European countries have partly banned the use of neonicotinoids as insecticides (Germany, Slowenia, France, Italy). Online petitions for a ban are ongoing in many European countries. A voting in the European Commission is scheduled for mid March.

A study on “Existing Scientific Evidence of the Effects of Neonicotinoid Pesticides on Bees” was published by DG Internal Policies of the European Commission here:
