BRUSSELS (AFP) - Bothered by spiking mortality rates for bees, Europe's parliamentarians voted overwhelmingly on Tuesday to urge the European Union to provide more funding for the beekeeping sector.

MEPs voted 534 in favour, with 16 against and 92 abstentions, to support research and development in veterinary medecine to save the declining bee population, while also enforcing legislation on killer pesticides.

'Beekeeping is crucial for our society as pollination plays an essential role in preserving biodiversity and maintaining sustainable European agriculture and food security,' said Hungarian Socialist Csaba Tabajdi, who drafted the resolution.

"Albert Einstein once said that without bees, a person will not live more than four years," he added.

Based on our technology for the application of electromagnetic fields with prescribed parameters, the mortality of bees is reduced and honey collection is double.
