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.
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
When bees go out and collect nectar from the flower they are actually doing people a favor because that is how they produce beeswax. Next time think before you kill a bee because that could mean you can’t get that great smelling candle you want. Beeswax is the better alternative to burn, because they are better for the environment, healthier for people with respiratory problems, and safer for children. Beeswax is made by very young bees around seventeen days old. Young bees have bigger wax glands so they are the ones that are able to make the beeswax.
The honey bee is an important insect that has been around since the beginning of time. Recently their population has been dramatically decreasing. A large amount of our crops require honey bees to pollinate them to produce resources. As the honey bee fades away, our society seem to be not to acknowledging this. It may take a dramatic drop in wanted goods and popular foods to be scarce until people actually care about the honey bees.
Eiseley described it as “exploding upon the world with truly revolutionary violence”. A large part of their existence remains a mystery because they “appeared so suddenly and spread so fast.” The dawn of the flowers sparked evolution in all life on Earth. Birds used to look like bizarre lizards with wings if their feathers were plucked. Come the flowers, however, and the birds started showing beaks that were perfect for eating the encased seeds and such from the flowering world. Flowers also brought on the creation of the Hummingbird and other insects that were made for pollination.
She uses such word to demonstrate the possible reasons for the sudden reducement in the population of the American burying beetles in lines 71-75, “ One reason for the species’ precipitous decline across its historical range, in addition to habitat loss and fragmentation, is possibly connected with the extinction of the passenger pigeon and the greatly reduced number of black-footed ferrets and prairie chickens, all of which provided carrion of ideal size.” As seen in this short excerpt, the importance of other living organisms is essential to the welfare of these beetles for they provide a substantial amount of resources that allow the beetles’ species to prosper, and Goodall is seen to emphasize this idea with her use of the word “extinction” due to the fact that extinction is the absolute eradication of a living organism. Therefore, if there is one minor tweak in the equilibrium of our surrounding food chains, there will be a domino effect onto the affected species which will most definitely make an appalling impact onto many more species down the food chain
There is a lot of buzz about the Bee Colony Collapse Disorder which is, according to dictionary.com, a pathological condition which leads to a disappearance of worker bees from the hive resulting in the hive’s failure. The reason I am concerned about this topic is because human survival is tied to bee survival. Bees are responsible for ⅓ of the meals we eat, either by pollinating the fruits and vegetables that humans eat or by pollinating crops that feed animals that we eat, like cows. It is difficult to come up with a solution to this issue because there are many root causes. Bee Colony Collapse Disorder is a bigger problem than most people realize, and if it is not solved, it will have a devastating effect by taking away important food that
[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 plants contribute to the food system by feeding animals, aside from humans such as birds and insects. If the food source for these animals was diminished or lost completely, it would cause the entire food chain to suffer. Also, about 80 percent of flower plants depend on pollination. If this process stops, not only do we have the potential to lose beautiful plants, but also food for us, birds, squirrels and all of the other animals that depend on plants for food. There is saying that “if the bees cease to exists, all life forms will be jeopardized” even humans, the realness of this saying is yet to be ascertained as there are still bees on earth and humans too.
Many communities are impacted by exotic species that are introduced over time (Lankau 2009). These exoctic species can result in either positive or negative effects on the community through interacting with the native species (Lankau 2009). Exotic species are moved by humans outside of their native range; species become invasive when they cause harm to their new environment. Earthworms are exotic in many areas that they are introduced to over time. Earthworms are a major influence on soil composition, but to this day there is still many unknown factors about the species (Zirbes L et.
