Why don't Bees Sneeze?

I even get near pollen and I’m sneezing like crazy. Bees can wallow in it and no problem.
Seriously, I’m a bit concerned about the latest studies related to Colony Collapse Disorder and the discovery of significant amounts of neonicotinoids in the dead bees. Neonicotinoids is an insecticide which Bayer manufactures. Bayer is adamant that the study was flawed and there is no link to Colony Collapse. (Tobacco doesn’t cause cancer either). I listened to the rebuttal by the Bayer scientist that developed the compound. I find it difficult to take this scientist serious, especially since a significant part of his income is royalties from the insecticide in question. Maybe Monsanto can develop a gene which eliminates the need for bees.
