Colony collapse disorder is affecting the honey bees in a big way. In a few short years the population has significantly dropped. The math says that if you lose 30 percent of your bee colonies every year for a few years, you rapidly end up with close to 0 colonies left.The most common factor that many scientists say has been a large contributor to the decline of the honey bees is the amount of stress being put on them. Many researchers have found through the tracking of honey bee activity that they have been forced to go find food or pollen at a young age, ultimately collect less pollen, and die far earlier than generations before. These factors lead to the accelerating of bee colony collapses.
Hook: What is causing the Monarch butterfly to become closer to extinction? Transition:The Monarch butterfly has been having many issues recently over the past years.Monarch butterflies are very important. The Monarch butterfly is a insect that and is currently facing the problem of ,but it can be solved by . The Monarch butterfly is a very special insect .Because Monarch butterflies need milkweed plants to lay their eggs.Monarch butterflies also contribute to the health of our plants.While feeding on nectar, they pollinate many types of flowers.Theirs four stages of the Monarch butterfly life cycle which are egg,larva,pupa and adult butterfly.The Monarch’s migration south usually starts in October.Monarch’s will spend their winter hibernation
The risks begin before the insecticide has fully broken down which does not persist for long periods of time. The most affected creature are the bees that are coming into contact with the insecticide. The aerial spraying in North Carolina resulted in the death of millions of honeybees. The product used, Trump, which contains the pesticide Naled, is labeled to be highly toxic to bees. Many beekeepers were not warned about the aerial spraying which resulted in the loss of their colonies.
They also will have a better chance of being able to survive and reproduce because their food source (field rats) won’t be limited anymore. However, if the populations of field rat continue to increase, the rice plant population soon will decrease until there’s no more left to support the field rat. This will cause a dramatic drop in the field rat’s population because many will have to compete, adapt to another food source but there might be one, starve, and get eaten by the increased snake population. Sooner or later the whole food chain would crash and disappear unless they find another food source. When the population of field rats increases they can cause many things to happen.
Pueblo people built interconnected, year-round “houses” called pueblos. The first pueblos appeared in Mesa Verde sometime after 650 but by 850 more than half of Mesa Verdeans lived in them. The nomadic Puebloans quickly found it hard to support their growing population on just foraging, hunting, and gardening, which made them increasingly reliant on domesticated corn. This change forced them to stay in the area for long periods of time which inevitably put an end to their nomadic lifestyle. A severe drought from 1130 to 1180 led to rapid depopulation in many parts of the San Juan Basin, particularly at Chaco Canyon.
There have been several periods in recent history that bees have been documented to have severe population loss, the 1880’s, 1920’s, and 1960’s. The unexplained loss and conditions of the bees are very similar to our current day Colony Collapse Disorder, but there is no solid proof to confirm this. In Cache Valley in Utah, 1903, 2,000 colonies of bees were lost to an unknown “disappearing disease” and more recently, in 1995-96, bee keepers in Pennsylvania lost 53% of their bee populations without even knowing the cause (ARS: Honey Bees and Colony Collapse
The environment could be at risk if animals start going extinct. Every animal has a job to do, for example, a bumblebee helps pollinate plants. Without the bumblebee the plant population would decrease and that would affect all the animal because plants give off oxygen, and almost every living thing needs oxygen to survive. Without animals, everything would just fall apart and start dying. If the top predator of the food chain were to disappear, other animal populations would start to overpopulate and that would also affect the environment.
Let’s start with pesticides and their effects on both bees and humans. David Schubert, a professor at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, explains, “There is a striking correlation between the decline of the bee population, which was first widely noted in the late 1990s -- soon after the introduction of neonicotinoids and glyphosate resistant crops -- and an increase in the relative frequency of several human diseases, such as autism and gastrointestinal conditions, in the same time frame.” The pesticides mentioned in this quote, (neonicotinoids and glyphosate) are the most common pesticides that are threatening bees and harming humans as well. Neonicotinoids are
Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds The Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Archilochus colubris) is just 1 of 339 species of hummingbirds found worldwide. These unique birds spend the warm seasons in North America, then migrate to Central America for the cold seasons. This tiny bird is the only one of its kind that breeds east of the Mississippi River. So many people love watching the amazing birds hover around their hummingbird feeders that hang on their property in the spring and summer. Most people only know that these hummingbirds are tiny, fast, and love their feeders that are full of sugary goodness.
When money is tight, you can always create your own baby food. Many baby foods found in stores are safe and convenient, however many contain a lot of sugar, water and starch. Homemade ones have lower amounts and are more natural. Babies don't need to consume solid foods until they are at 4-6 months old. Babies younger than 4-6 months old have not learned how to swallow.
Did you know that a sugar is a host to many kinds of terrifying diseases? Having a high sugar diet may lead to diabetes, cancer, heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, and stroke. People are eating more sugar than ever because about every food company is adding sugars to their products. About eighty-five percent of all grocery store item have added sugar in them! Sugar is terrible for people 's health and nutrition.
