The idea of killer bees showing up in your backyard and killing you may seem a little far fetched. It isn’t. You could be walking to school not doing anything out of the ordinary and they could attack you. The killer bees you might hear about are what are called Africanized honey bees. They are way more aggressive than the regular bee you would see in the park or in your garden. Until that feeble kind you know are dominated by the Africanized killer bees, and the Africanized ones are the only ones left!
One may want to know the specific components of these formulas that should guarantee the said claims and promises. Do they really contain adequate concentration of pheromones commensurate with their claims?
Do you ever look around and ask yourself, "Where have those fuzzy, black, and yellow worker bees gone?" Well, I do! Bees are hard workers and whether they are pollinating plants, making honey, or just flying around making that "Bzzzzzz" sound they are always working. People underestimate the power of bees and the benefits they bring to this earth. The truth is they are very important to people and to the earth, but people don't realize that, and neither did I. After you get finished reading this essay you're going to know some of the answers to those "why" and "how" questions people always ask about bees. Like "why are bees dying?" or "how can we help them?" So, let's begin!
A honey bees ' wings stroke 11,400 times per minute, making a distinctive buzzing noise (Delaplane). There are many things that people don’t know about bees. Such as when beekeeping started, the difference between hobbyist and commercial beekeepers. There are also different types of bees, different types of honey and different uses of honey. Most people are perfectly fine never encountering a bee or knowing anything about them. A human’s first reaction to a bee is defense. People are convinced that the bee is there to harm them by stinging them. Most people that have experienced an encounter with a bee, wasp or hornet would say it wasn’t a positive encounter. Swinging, swatting and trying to hit the bee away is what people instinctively
Jason Castro writes in, “You Have a Mind” that “Every decision you make is essentially a committee act. Members chime in, options are weighed, and eventually a single proposal for action is approved by consensus. The committee, of course, is the densely knit society of neurons in your head. And “approved by consensus” is really just a delicate way of saying that the opposition was silenced”. The average bee swarm has many more close similarities that you would think.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.
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. With this result, a majority of crops may be lost. According to Justin Moyer, a reporter at the Washington post, “The USDA estimated that honeybees add more than $15 billion to the value of the country’s crops per year” (Moyer 1).The honey
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
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 visit around 50-100 different flowers in one collection trip for honey; What would happen if millions of hives are declining in populations? The decline in bees is a serious problem that could cause the beautiful spring colors to turn dark and saturated without colors. This epidemic is worldwide, and could be a serious problem, more than one third of what goes on your plate is made with products that have been pollinated by bees (The Bees in). The bees have been declining in most of Europe because of the rough cold winters they have had the past years dropping their populations by almost 53%, as well as pesticides dropping the populations and killing of the entirety of a single hive (). This problem could cause a
Life is filled with challenges and conflict. However only a few can overcome and escape the confinements of their problems, others remain left behind to struggle. Sue Monk Kidd displays this with the imprisonment that Lily deals with throughout the book. While Lily does finds liberation at the end, she first had to break free from the imprisonments of her secrets, T-Ray, and the torment from killing her mother.
There are quite a few serious side effects associated with taking Symbicort that you should be aware of. Pneumonia and other lower respiratory tract infections are possible side effects. However, people with COPD have a higher chance of getting pneumonia. 1COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs. Symptoms include a change in the amount or color of mucus, fever, experiencing chills, and increased coughing or breathing problems. Serious allergic reactions such as a rash, hives, swelling of the face, mouth, or tongue are also possible side effects. This medication can cause an immune system effect that can heighten your risk for infection. If you have stopped taking oral corticosteroid medicines and start taking inhaled corticosteroid medicine, this may lead to adrenal insufficiency. 2Adrenal insufficiency is a disorder in which the adrenal glands above the kidney do not produce enough hormones. 3Corticosteroid medications are drugs that mimic the effect of hormones that your body
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 .
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.
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”
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.
