I'm sure they did it for altruistic reasons.
They'll have that research firm find out the real reason for the bee collapse and announce to the world that it is NOT due to their tampering with mother nature.

That should be enough evidence for countries that have banned Monsanto products to allow them to do business.

Monsanto is going to fix the problem they are accused of causing.

Blamed for Bee Collapse, Monsanto Buys Bee Research Firm | Natural Society
Monsanto scooped up the Beeologics firm back in September 2011.
..
Owning a major organization that focuses heavily on the bee collapse and is recognized by the USDA for their mission statement of “restoring bee health and protecting the future of insect pollination” could be very advantageous for Monsanto.


And for those that think the link (natural society) makes up stuff..an announcement by the company itself.

This quote from the article:
"Steve Censky, chief executive officer of the American Soybean Association, states it quite plainly. It was a move to help Monsanto and other biotechnology giants squash competition and make profits. After all, who cares about public health?"
