On World Bee day, human activity blamed for falling pollinator numbers

If you think you’re busy, then spare a thought for the world’s bees; for they, along with other insects and animals, are responsible for pollinating more than 75 per cent of the planet’s favourite food crops.

The problem is, pollinators are under threat, and their numbers are falling because of human impact. We are likely losing some species forever, FAO believes, based on available data in the U.S and Europe.

It’s a warning that the UN’s Food and Agricultural Organization, FAO, highlighted on World Bee Day, which is observed on Monday 20 May.

Examples of URTIs include the common cold, tonsillitis and laryngitis, while the flu can be an upper or a lower RTI, the NHS explains.

Fungus provides powerful medicine in fighting honey bee viruses

A mushroom extract fed to honey bees greatly reduces virus levels, according to a new paper. In field trials, colonies fed mycelium extract showed a 79-fold reduction in deformed wing virus and a 45,000-fold reduction in Lake Sinai virus compared to control colonies. The hope is that the results of this research will help dwindling honey bee colonies fight viruses that are known to play a role in colony collapse disorder.

What is The Most Important Insect On The Planet

The Most Important Insect On The Planet – The Bee – Is On The Verge Of Extinction, Which Will End Humanity As Well

High-Rise-Honey-BeeBees have officially been added to the list of endangered species close to extinction in the very near future if humans don’t do anything about saving these most beneficial insects.

The loss of bees on this earth will be a disaster for mankind because they are irreplaceable insects. The relation that bees have to all flowering plants is the most interdependent, cooperative, harmonious and important things on the planet. This relationship has lasted for over 100 million years, which led to the creation of all the diverse species we have in nature. Having all these readily available species have also promoted the human species through food and nutrients.

There are over 20,000 species of bees on this earth, and surprisingly, most of them do not live in hives. 75% of the food that produce seed and fruits that are consumed are partly done by pollination, with the bees’ help. 87 of crops worldwide are wholly created by pollination. These crops feed thousand of animals and birds.
