Bees are major factor in our environment. But recent studies show that we are to blame for the decline in the Bee populations. The main reasons are industrial agriculture (pesticides), mites and climate change. And we should care about them because they provide us with honey and beeswax, and provide a major ecosystem service in the form of pollination. Bees pollinate a lot of crops like apple, citrus, strawberry, blueberry, tomato, melon, oilseed rape, carrot, etc.
Eat Your Bugs vs. Insect Farmers The texts “Eat Your Bugs” by Miguel Vila and Laura Allen and “Insect Farmers...” by The Washington Post have both similarities and differences. First, both articles show and explain that eating bugs is good for the environment. For example, on page 24 of “Eat Your Bugs” the text states “But the poisons wash away in the rain. They end up in rivers and kill fish and other living things.” Similarly, on page 2 of “Insect Farmers” it says “It would also reduce the environmental footprint.” This is similar because both articles are saying that eating bugs is good for the environment with different reasons. The poisons that the average citizen uses to kill bugs washes away in the rain and could not only kill bugs, but other wildlife too.
These reasons, including many more, are why Animal Farm fails. One reason Animal Farm fails, is because of power grabs by animals. There are many examples of this throughout the book. One power grab that failed Animal Farm, was when the pigs take the milk along with the apples for themselves. “So it was agreed without further argument that the milk and windfall apples (and also the main crop of apples when they ripened) should be reserved for the pigs alone.” (P.g 36) This is unfair because the pigs being selfish, but they are the leader, it immediately grants them permission to do so.
[Difference] Bees are many people’s enemies because they sting and seem like man’s enemy, but bees make honey, and pollinate plants, which can help give us our food; however, flies have no such redeeming qualities. [Analogy] As dirt is useless unless it has a plant growing in it, so flies are more pests then bees. Epilogue  I could continue to write about how invaluable flies are, but flies are buzzing [onomatopoeia] around and over running our world; therefore let us cease speaking of them so we can go out and attempt to "Decrease the surplus population." [Quote from Christmas
These people that considered themselves vegetarian and vegan strongly believe that killing animals is unethical because of the pain that the animals have to endure. However, these people who refuse to eat meat are unaware that there are animals being harmed during the process of harvesting crops. For instance, in Barbara Kingsolver’s “Animal, Vegetable Miracle,” she describes of how the harvest of crops kills animals as well, both directly and indirectly (Source B). To prevent crops from being destroyed by insects, they are sprayed with pesticides, these toxic gases are harmful to other animals as well such as birds, killing approximately 67 million a year. Likewise, machines used to harvest these crops like the sickle mower harms the environment of small animals such as rabbits and foxes by demolishing their homes, causing a disturbance in their way of life.
If an animal is to be treated for other conditions besides fleas, such as expression of anal glands, these procedures should be done before the insecticide application to minimize insecticide contact with interior mucosal membranes. A wide range of insecticides are available for flea control. The pyrethrins and pyrethroids have the lowest mammalian toxicity. These insecticides come in many formulations including shampoo, dust and powder, mousse, aerosol
Introduction and Justification: Introduction: Verbena bonariensis is a fast growing NEMBA category 1b alien invasive species known for growing in grasslands, moist areas and along pavements and roadsides (Invasive Species South Africa, 2018) The plant possess threat to local plant life as it takes up growing space and uses up resources such as water. Justification: I live one street away from Delta Park and have noticed the clean-up operations that are ongoing in the Florence Bloom Bird Sanctuary. I would like to further my understanding on alien invasive species Verbena bonariensis, which is the main targeted alien invasive in the sanctuary and the reason as to why the plant pose a threat to the local plant life of the sanctuary. Hypothesis: The average amount of Verbena bonariensis will be higher than the average amount of other natural occurring plants growing in the Florence Bloom Bird Sanctuary. Aim: To determine the average amount of Verbena bonariensis versus the average amount of other natural occurring plants growing in the Florence Bloom Bird Sanctuary.
Bees vs Pesticides Argumentative By:Amaja Grimm Bees work to pollinate and make honey, that is why we need to stop using pesticides. The chemicals in the pesticides are toxic to not only wasps, flies, and other pesky insects the pesticides are also toxic to bees. Bees pollinate at least one third of the world’s flowers and other pollinated plants such as pears, apples, cherry, cantaloupe, almonds, blueberries, cranberries, kiwi, plums, carrots, and some other plants too. We need to stop using pesticides wild pollinators, which include bees, wasps, beetles, flies, butterflies, moths, birds, bats, and even some non-flying mammals, have suffered and dies from the chemicals. This includes habitat destruction which puts more animals
In summary, Sinclair’s the Jungle tackles problems about the capitalist system and uses instances of literary elements to connect two concepts, like animals in the Slaughterhouse and immigrants in the US, but these are not Sinclair’s primary concern. Upton Sinclair wrote the Jungle with a desire for money. This claim is proven by the overwhelming instances of impossible levels of misfortune, excessively gory imagery, and disturbing descriptions of the food you eat and how it’s truly prepared. The main character’s dad dies, then his wife, then his son, from drowning in mud, then his other family member gets eaten by rats. To have that many horrible things happen to one family is impossible.
