Thousands of dead bees were found in piles outside hives in early May, triggering an investigation by Health Canada and the province's agriculture and environment ministries. An agriculture ministry spokeswoman said Health Canada found residues of the insecticide clothianidin in 28 of 37 samples of bees from various sites. Clothianidin was banned in Germany after widespread honeybee deaths and U.S. beekeepers and environmental groups are campaigning to have it banned there. The spokeswoman wrote in an e-mail that given the large number of potential factors involved, Health Canada hasn't drawn any conclusions yet.
