Bees pollinate a lot of crops like apple, citrus, strawberry, blueberry, tomato, melon, oilseed rape, carrot, etc. We may not be realizing, but long term monitoring of the changes in global crop production over the past 50 years shows we are becoming more reliant on pollinator-dependent crops. Without bees, there could be serious problems for agriculture productivity and even food security in some regions of the world might have problems.
Levels found from these samples were enough to cause detrimental health effects. In a separate study, they found that over half of plants at a major garden store contained neonicotinoids. These levels were high enough to kill a bee instantly. In a study from 2016, 35 different pesticides and fungicides were collected from pollen that bees used to pollinate food crops in five U.S. states. Bees that came in contact with these combinations of chemicals were more likely to be infected with the Varroa Mite, a parasite that is associated with Colony Collapse Disorder.
Bees are an important, if not the MOST important part of creating food. In order for plants to actually produce a crop, they need to be cross pollinated with other plants. Neonicotinoids, chemicals used to control pests on plants, are widely use in industrial agriculture (Morelle). With the use of neonicotinoids on plants, bees are exposed to this chemical which “[causes] an immediate hyper-activation - so an epileptic type activity - [which is] preceded by neuronal inactivation, where the brain goes quiet and cannot communicate any more” (Morelle). There are major side effects of bees being neurally deactivated; they wouldn’t know which plants to go to, and without knowing where to go they wouldn’t go anywhere.
They receive most of their lipids, protein, and amino acids from the production and handling of pollen.” (http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/in868) Pollen is like air to bees, and they make sure they incorporate in their daily lives which also affects us as humans. Bees affect our environment more than we know. If we did not have bees our environment would look drastically different than what we see today. Bees pollinate over ninety percent of Earth’s vegetation, and they work together with other animals to spread the rest. “An estimated eighty percent of food in grocery stores is available on the shelves, thanks to bee-pollinated crops.”(How Bees Benefit Others) Avocados, blueberries, and broccoli are just some crops that would very scarce if bees did not help us.
Situation Honey bee is One of the world's most important creatures. These little insects are the pollinators that most of our crops depend on to set fruit. Honey bees are so important, in fact, that we have them to thank for 1/3 of the food We eat, including 80% of our fruits and vegetables. Crops that are highly dependant on honey bee pollination include avocado, almonds, kiwi and apples. But, Nowaday the shrinking of bees population related to human activity, such as pesticides, urban development/rural encroachment, radio frequencies, global warming etc.Recording to some experiments, Non Lethal exposure of honey bees to Thiamethoxam causes high mortality due to homing failure at levels that could put a bee colony at risk of collapse.Simulated exposure events on free-ranging foragers labeled with a radio-frequency.identification tag suggest that homing is impaired by thiamethoxam intoxication.
If we didn’t most of the plants we have, including farm crops and any type of garden, would die off. If all the plants die off the animals that eat the plants will die off and then would follow the animals that ate those animals and so on. This is why we need to start raising bees, not just for the bees, but for plants and the environment.
In order to fulfill our desires for almonds, fruit, and honey, humans are disrupting the social hierarchy that bees strictly follow. One third of our food would not exist without the bees. However, in our attempts to produce this food, we are encouraging the collapse of honeybee populations all over the world. Although I found it
These crops have been modified to increase natural toxin levels and contain proteins known to cause allergic reactions and lead to health risks. Monsanto’s herbicide “roundup” has been linked to severe drops in bee and monarch butterfly populations along with the creation of herbicide resistant super weeds.
In our world, there insects and other living things that we don't know about.there is one thing that makes us live is the Honeybees,they help us live by helping the plants stay alive.the plants are also important because because the plants give off oxygen. we need oxygen to live or we will die. why we need honeybees and why people don't have to kill them.we need honey bees so much for their tasty honey and also for their spread of pollen.the pollen is for the plants to live without pollen the plants die without plants we humans die as well.we need bees so much its there job for bees to spread the pollen on the plants.honeybees do to d be harm because bees are such nice insects they are always calm insects they do not mess with no one they are always calm people mess with them and that is why bees attack because they protect their nest. we can save the honey bees by not spraying repellent on them when they are near your house.we all know that y'all people think they are dangerous and can harm your children and yourselves.alright lets talk about how we can
