The population of bees is now declining on a global scale. One of the things at the very forefront of the dangers affecting the population of bees is the use of pesticides in agriculture. As reported by NPR, a group of scientists from the UK recently investigated how bumblebee queens are affected by neonicotinoids, also called neonics, some of the most widely used – and incredibly controversial – pesticides.
According to the study, published in the journal Nature Ecology and Evolution, queen bees that were exposed to the pesticide were 26 percent less likely to lay eggs, in comparison with those that were not. But exposure to neonics is just one of the factors that affect the decline of the bees’ population, like nutrition limitation due to the disappearance of wildflowers – but it is a big and dangerous one, based on the data.
70 of the top 100 food crops grown worldwide depend on pollinators – which translates to 90 percent of the world’s nutrition! We need bees and right now, they need us. Here are some ways to help:
1. Plant bee-friendly plants in your garden
2. Support organic farmers who do not use chemicals on their crops
3. Spread the word about the importance of bees and their declining population
