Save Our Native Bees! sos-bees.org
Bees are vital to our lives as they are among the primary pollinators of plants in the world. It has been deduced that if our bees were to die out the effect on crops and wild flowers would be utterly catastrophic. As these crops and flowers provide food for our wild and farm animals we could easily lose up to a third of our regular diet. This is a very real problem, and one that is not getting the attention it needs.
There have been many suggestions as to the causes of the decline in bees, one of the most popular of which is the widespread use of pesticides. Insecticides such as this may well have an adverse effect on bees and could explain the large numbers that are dying out each year. Other suggestions have included mites that spread disease and also the change in climate of late, but bee-keepers are – in general – at a loss to explain what is happening.
