One of the most important species that is responsible for the wellbeing of the planet is in danger. Bees pay a vast contribution to the agricultural field by pollinating. It is estimated that one-third of the food that we consume each day relies on pollination mainly by bees. Brazil has brought us despairing news of losing up to 500 millions of bees.
In the state of Rio Grande do Sul, 400 million dead bees were found. Researchers have blamed the use of pesticides that are used to kill pests.
The main cause of death for these bees has been the use of pesticides containing products that are banned in Europe, such as neonicotinoids and fipronil.
It’s agonizing to watch, how far that humans have come by destroying their own home to reach financial profit.
“If the bee disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years left to live.” Albert Einstien.
The government has approved a vast number of pesticides this year and the bees are dropping dead.
