But where are all those viruses coming from is it coming from humans or mutations of a few viruses?
Common weed killer linked to bee deaths. Honey bees exposed to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, lose some of the beneficial bacteria in their guts and are more susceptible to infection and death from harmful bacteria. Scientists believe this is evidence that glyphosate might be contributing to the decline of honey bees and native bees around the world. Source 7s.
Bees on the brink. Using an innovative robotic platform to observe bees' behavior, researchers showed that, following exposure to neonicotinoid pesticides -- the most commonly-used class of pesticides in agriculture -- bees spent less time nursing larvae and were less social that other bees. Additional tests showed that exposure impaired bees ability to warm the nest, and to build insulating wax caps around the colony. Source 3o.
I really wouldn't be surprised if the reason these bees are dying off due to something humans did. Since we've taken over the planet the amount of species which is now extinct is already countless. Not to say humans are bad exactly… but we do have a problem with taking action without considering anything or anyone outside of our personal benefits. We see it with greedy corporations because they treat us that way, but even normal people treat animals and nature the same way billionaires treat us. Like we are worthless, like nature is worthless. Like animals are worthless. Sure there are the relatively small amount of people who are advocates for things like healthy and sustainable farming and agriculture methods and such but when we talk about the human species as a whole, we pretty much have never taken the planet or it's inhabitants into consideration when making any decision amongst our towns and cities.
I really am curious about what we've done this time to cause this problem with the bees. I wonder, if bees go extinct what the consequences to the planet will be.
Pureyang, the consequences would be huge. Much of our agricultural requires pollination to grow produce or fruit. Bees are one of the largest pollinators by far. If they cannot recover from this, It would be difficult to find a domesticated insect that might be able to replace them.
