Its sting hurts a lot, but if they were to disappear, it would hurt
Earthwatch Institute concluded in the last debate of the
Royal Geographical Society of London, that bees are the most
important living being on the planet, however, scientists have also
made an announcement:
Bees have already
entered into extinction
Bees around the world have disappeared up to 90% according to recent
studies, the reasons are different depending on the region, but
among the main reasons are,
WHY HAS BEES
BEEN DECLARED AS THE MOST VALUABLE LIVING BEING ON OUR PLANET?
Entrepreneurship Center of the Universidad Mayor (CeapiMayor)
Corporation of Chile (Cach)
with the support
of the Foundation for Agrarian Innovation (FIA),
...conducted a study
where it was determined that bees are the only living being that it
is not a carrier of any type of pathogen, regardless of whether it
is a fungus, a virus or a bacterium.
The agriculture of the world depends on 70% of these
insects, to put it more clearly and directly,
we could say that 70
of 100 foods are intervened in favor by bees...
Also the pollination that
the bees make allows the plants to reproduce, of which millions of
without them, the fauna would soon begin to disappear.
The honey produced by bees, not only serve as food, but also provide
many benefits to our health and our skin.
"According to a quote
humans would have 4 years to live..."
WHAT ARE THE
REASONS AND HYPOTHESES ATTRIBUTED TO THE EARLY DISAPPEARANCE OF
Federal Institute of Technology of Switzerland, proposes
a theory that blames the
waves produced thanks to mobile telephony.
They explain that these
waves emitted during calls are capable of disorienting bees, causing
them to lose their sense of direction and therefore their life is
put in danger.
The researcher and biologist Daniel Favre, along with other
researchers, made 83 experiments that show that bees in the presence
of these waves, produce a noise ten times higher than usual,
behavior that has been observed to make it known to other bees they
are in danger and it is important to leave the hive.
Undoubtedly, the greatest reason for its disappearance is attributed
constant fumigation of crops, an
example of this is what happens in Colombia, since during the last
three years 34% of bees with agrotoxins have died of poisoning.
SOLUTIONS TO THE PROBLEM?
There are indeed solutions, the problem is that it is very difficult
to carry them out, because there are very entrenched practices in
production and agriculture.
However, three solutions are proposed with the hope that they can be
done in a short time:
reduce, the use of toxic pesticides.
completely natural agricultural alternatives.
research and monitoring of the health, welfare and
conservation of bees.
This is an example of the
problem that is being experienced with bees and the urgency of
creating changes in our management of resources, says
Grisales, representative to the Chamber of Commerce of
"It is of
to establish the
strategic nature of the protection
of bees and other pollinators,
since not to do
so in 10 years
would not be
counted on bees in Colombia.
This would lead
to a food catastrophe
and a health
crisis in the country."
