Honey Bees are disappearing World wide at an alarming rate. Already Europe has banned certain pesticides in an attempt to allow Honey Bees to survive. Although not without controversy, chemical companies of course are saying that it is not their chemicals that are causing the loss of trillions of Honey Bees.
America is worrying that there will not be enough Honey Bees to pollinate certain crops this coming season. Even with that worry, the pesticides that are thought to cause the deaths of the Honey Bee, have not been banned.
Scientist World wide think that what certain pesticides are doing to the Honey Bee to cause their death is; they think that the pesticide enters the bloodstream of the Honey Bee when the Bee lands on the flower to collect pollen( for cross pollination of plants) and interferes with their navigation system, so that they can’t find the hive, they then die.
What are we doing to stop the disappearance World wide of the Honey Bee? Not enough. As we stated earlier, Europe has placed bans on certain pesticides. Most other countries have not.
Again, our World leaders are slow to act. Again there is NO unified response or even a unified belief in what is causing the loss of the Honey Bee. As in all crisis that this World of ours is currently enduring, while they argue over who or what is to blame. Nothing happens.
Will any response now actually stop or even slow down the rate at which our World is losing Honey Bees? We don’t know! Is it likely that there will be a unified World response actually take place? I will let you be the judge of that! ( my personal opinion, NO)
If as some are predicting, the total extinction of the Honey Bee, occurs. How will we cross pollinate our crops? How will we produce enough food for our World’s population? There are other insects and some birds that do create cross pollination, however nowhere near as much as is needed or supplied by the Honey Bee.
It appears that yet again our World leaders have allowed Man to interfere with our Environment without thinking through all of the risks.
Again Man has thought that he knows better than Mother nature. What has taken our Planet millions of years to create, Man is again showing just how quickly, he can undo what nature has provided.
