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.
I think that bees should be included on the zodiac calendar. The reason for it is that we all know that the earth is very connected, and how some organisms need others to survive. Bees are important for the survival of many organism, well technically the whole world would be very different if it didn’t have bees. Crops and plants get pollinated by bees; as in the things we eat and sell for food and income. There are a lot of different types of bees each with jobs they’re good at and they all work to help disperse the pollen to the plants and foods.
Scientists think that one of the main causes of this problem is because of the pesticides that being used called neonicotinoids. Neonicotinoids are used to control insect pests. They are coated on seeds such as corn, soybean, cotton, and wheat. Also, they are sprayed on crops. There is a movement happening now that is trying to stop the usage of neonicotinoids and hopefully save the honeybees before it is too late.
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 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
In conclusion, evidence from David Foster Wallace’s article “Consider the lobster” demonstrates how he uses personification and information from animal activist groups to make the readers feel bad for the way lobsters are being consumed and killed. Lobster are adored by many and consumed at a large quantity for an expensive price. The process of cooking the lobster alive is somewhat disturbing to some people. It is important to know where food is coming from and how the animal feels when it is getting prepared
At this time, there is little to no evidence that these pesticides are increasing yields from plants they are applied to. However, there has been evidence of the pesticides killing bees or causing damage to their nervous systems, which impedes their ability to forage and fly. Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health preformed a study which found that 70% of pollen and honey collected from local bees contained at least trace amounts of neonicotinoids. Levels found from these samples were enough to cause detrimental health effects.
Imagine a world without bees. It might seem like it would be nice, a world without an annoying, stinging pesty insect. Because of industrial agriculture, we are on our way there now. The United States, and other countries, need to make a treaty to ban the use of neonicotinoid, a type of chemical used on plants, and insecticides because these chemicals are mentally and physically disabling bees; causing more and more bees to die; and without these bees, we won't have any food. Bees are an important, if not the MOST important part of creating food.
The author states that salvage logging is beneficial both to damaged forest and to the economy and provides three reasons. In contrast, the professor states that this can result with environmental damage and it 's economical benefit is also questionable and she opposes each of the author 's reasons. First, the article claims that salvage logging removes the remains of dead trees and make room for fresh growth immediately. However, the professor refutes this point by saying that cleaning up does not necessarly create good growth condition for trees. She explained that after the decomposition of dead trees, trees will add nutrient to the soil that beneficial for new growing trees and by rapid removing, it would cause lacking the soil from the nutrient for the new trees.
It may take a dramatic drop in wanted goods and popular foods to be scarce until people actually care about the honey bees. We depend on bees to pollinate our food-producing plants. Without bees transferring pollen from one flower to another to pollinate it, crops and plants will not become pollinated and bear fruit. Some of the fruits and vegetables that rely on pollination include watermelon, apples, pears, strawberries, almonds,
The penny would help the flower slowly heal itself without having to battle of the bacterias eating the flower. There are much more ways the flower could die but the penny is one way to help preserve the flower. This natural antibacterial agent works like an acidifier, which prevents the growth of bacteria because bacteria cannot grow. The
For instance, due to them eating insects and other organisms they help farmers maintain their crops healthy. Spiders can also help prevent more people from getting infected of Malaria. Not only are spiders beneficial predators but they are also the prey for other organisms. Spiders are another food source for many organisms in the food chain. In many ways spiders are important in the food chain; they affect the chain no matter what role they play.
The author enumerates some possible solutions for reducing the number of cane toad, a kind of amphibian native to Central and South America, that was intentionally introduced to Australia to eat harmful insects in that region. The lecturer, however, refutes the proposed suggestions by mentioning some counterclaims, and she believes that they would be unsuccessful and they may bring about some damages to environment. First, the reading asserts that building a national fence would be a practical solution since it prevents the cane toad from entering other new areas like the one that was practiced beforehand. Nonetheless, the professor roles out the probability by mentioning another possibility. She argues that eggs and young children are usually
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.
Although scientists cannot find one main cause for the colony collapse, there is universal agreement that bees are dying due to human efforts for sustainability. Specifically, scientists believe that factors, such as habitat loss due to climate change and urbanization and the increase of pesticide usage, have contributed to the colony collapse. However, all these factors are rooted in human efforts to exploit the environment. While humans try to meet their current needs of land-use expansion, automobiles, and increasing food yields, they are destroying the sustainability of the future. In other words, as humans continue to be unconservative about their current needs, the bee population decreases; therefore, destroying the environment for future generations.
