Bee hives are disappearing daily, not only will this cause some food consumption to go down but also, economic decisions could be different because there will be no choice to have honey, shelter, and fiber, so we should focus more on measure to protect bees, that way they don 't become extinct.
Every day millions of honey bees fly back and forth from their hives. They pollinate a plethora of flowers and produce great amounts of honey. Many people do not realize what bees do for them and their communities. Without bees, people would not have any fresh flowers or produce. The bee population helps provide growth to one-third of the food in the world (Haltiwanger). Without bees, there would not be as much food for humans to survive. Even though we need bees to survive many people go on with their day not ever thinking of what can save the bees. They use pesticides to grow their grass, never buy organic food or honey, and even kill bees that come near them. Scientist today started working on many different experiments to help save the
The bees pollination process also helps to make the world spring into life with beautiful plants to make our day more colorful. (Tucker). All this Shows that bees have a significant environmental impact Bees are dying, which makes all of the fun above go right out the
Imagine ourselves walking to class, professors scurrying to their next class, people having conversations and laughing out loud, maintenance workers taking care of the problems around the campus, police officers watching vigilant, and then all of the sudden they all disappear. The only thing that can be heard is the whispering of the wind, there is no trace of where they went, they just simply –vanished. This terrifying idea is not a joke, it can be seen all across America and around the world, not with humans, but with bees. In last few years there have been significant decrease of bees across the nation and the world. It is a worldwide epidemic that needs our attention and care. If we do not make an effort to help our fellow bees, there will be greater effects on human resources and the environment. There are many factors that play into effect when it comes to the disappearance of bees but if we work together to eliminate every single one of them at a time, we can make a change that will one day bring back the bees.
Over one third of our food supply depends on bees pollinating. What that means is if bees aren’t around to pollinate our food than we won’t have the everyday food we eat, like blueberries and apples. Bees aren’t only essential in the pollination of around 250,000 plants, but In 2015-2016 44.1% was the annual loss of bees in US managed bee colonies surpassing the acceptable amount by 27% (Bee Informed). Worker bees are more than just workers for their hive, they are also workers for us $15 billion was contributed to the nation 's economy by these bees ( Bee Informed). You wouldn’t want to have around 1-2 thirds of our food that requires pollination to disappear, would you?
Honey bees are very important to people in the world. Not only do honeybees produce honey, but they do much more to help people. Malcolm T Sanford, a professor at the University of Florida says “the honey bee is credited with approximately 85% of the pollinating activity necessary to supply about one-third of the nation’s food supply” (Sanford 1). Over 50 major corps rely on honey bees for pollination (Sanford 1). Without the pollination, the crops will not get what they need for them to grow and produce.
Jurassic Bees The environmental risk that we chose was, the fact that bees are dying at an alarming rate, and only a few are trying to stop it. According to the article, “The Role of Bees”, “If wild pollinator declines continue, we run the risk of losing a substantial proportion of the world’s flora” This quote is important because one the pollinators die out, so do we, because they make most of our foods. And bees, are the best pollinators because in the process they also make honey.
Spring is in the air. So we are swarms of bees, looking for new homes. Initially, we have to recognize what kind of “bee” you are handling with. Common “bee” sightings fall into various different groups of potential species, of which most are not really bees. Now we are concentrated on removing honey bees only. We should not throw sticks, rocks or other items at the swarm in an attempt to drive it away. We are not attempting any procedures of bee control other than the advice I am going to give you here. We should not spray any chemicals. This could stimulate the bees, and is completely unnecessary. Given the troubles faced by all bees, we need to take care to protect the ones we have. We have to find a local beekeeping group and contact them.
Based on a scientific analys , the very accelerated loss of species that we are experiencing could be up to 1,000 to 10,000 losses per year. these losses do not only include wild animals or mammals that are constantly haunted , but also small pollinators such as bees. the bee decline is a an issue that is currently affecting most of North America and many countries in Europe , but the number of bee colonies are increasing in China . But if this issue is not solve as soon as possible , and the decline increases it will eventually become a worldwide issue.
These of course are all small ways to help the overall problem, but in mass majority the problem can be easily fixed, getting your voice out there and projected at a federal level could save our bees and our beautiful prosperous springs, and summers. If the population is unwilling to contribute this way, even limiting water can help the eventual collapse of the bee species as a whole, “The yield of vegetables and fruits is very low because of inadequate moisture content in the soil. Changes such as heavy rainfall in unseasonable months and severe water shortages at regular intervals indicate climate change.” (Pramila); climate change is a big deal when it comes for the populations of bees, and limiting water usage or conserving water can help the situation as a whole. Becoming a beekeeper as a hobby would not only grow the populations of bees, but an individual can even relocate the hives in the nature and expand the amount of populations that could repopulate and grow the average of colonies as a whole, “Today, there are half as many beekeepers as there were two decades ago, and the remaining beekeepers are mostly large-scale pollination services with thousands of hives and millions of bees.
One could look at a bee hive as a single living entity (otherwise known as a Superorganism).They ingest and digest food,regulate water control and achieve locomotion as well as many other things that humans do to stay alive. This is were the similarities stop. Bees are raised for certain jobs that are never changed. Queens lay eggs,Drones mate with queens,and workers well….. They work.
This project was chosen to investigate the decline of the honeybee and the impact on Australian agriculture. The honeybee decline is interconnected with environmental sustainability with key environmental challenges threatening the future of the honeybee and the industry of beekeeping. Some of these factors such as land degradation, limited water availability, loss of plant biodiversity, climate change, pests and pesticides loss of public lands such as National Parks, State forests and reserves, all impact on the sustainability and ecosystems which the honeybee depends and likewise, the ecosystems depend on the honeybee. With the disappearance of land to urbanisation and government restrictions on access to public lands some 70% of Australian
The theme of The Secret Life of Bees is that sometimes the bad things that happen in our lives can put us on a path to the good things. “Rosaleen lifted her snugg jug, which was filled with black spit, and calmly poured it across the men’s shoes…” (32). Rosaleen intends to register to vote, and on the way, they run into three white men. The men taunt Rosaleen, who angrily spills chewing-tobacco juice on their shoes.
