Honeybees are disappearing, afer my recent conversation with my family, I can’t believe what is going on with the honeybees, this is our first summer without seeing bees, it is so strange not to be able to actually hear them buzzing or see them fly into our home like they used to occasionally.
Kids in most places are not being stung on playgrounds, and in their backyards. This is a major environmental imbalance that can have far-reaching implications for the agricultural supply.
From Europe honeybees were brought in sixteen hundreds and have become widespread across North America, also are bred for their abilities in producing honey, and to pollinate the crops. Lately the population has decreased by as much ss seventy percent.
Chemicals May Be Killing the Honeybees
In most cases it has decreased because of the pesticides and herbicides, the honeybees ingest during daily pollinating rounds, and is largely to be the problem. The commericals beehives are subjected to direct chemical furnigation at regular intervals, this is to get rid of destructive mites, not to intentionally kill off the honeybees.
Radiation a cause to bees disappearing
The recent increase in atmospheric electromagnetic radiation like the increase of cell phones, and wireless communication towers, and the increased radiation of these devices could also be interfering with bees. During a recent study it was pointed out that bees will not go into their hives when cell phones were placed nearby.
Global Warming , Partly to Blame for Honeybee Deaths
The mites, viruses, and fungi that are familiar to attack bee colonies, the temperatures of weather hot and cold, has fluctuated over the recent years, is also to be blamed for such disturbances.
In twenty four states in the United States of America, thousands of bees were gone missing, unexplained of their disappearances, after these mysterious cases, it is called colony collapse disorder. Honeybees pollinate over fourteen billion worth off seeds annually and crops, in the United States, the fruits, vegetables and nuts. This is not normal to society
There are less beekeepers but more plants to pollinate, and less bees. No matter where you live, the bees are dying this is a huge problem which most scientist are trying to work out.
