Are Honey bees dying?
#26
:? Here in the UK, over the last several years, I've noticed a staggering number of young bees, dead, on pavements everywhere in early summer. Since bees tend to fly within 10 ft of the ground, they are obviously being killed by cars.

but the bees fly above the trees in cities and in the plains below to the flowers .... I do not know what to say ... I do not think that cars are guilty... :?
If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is "God is crying." And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is "Probably because of something you did."

Bees are extremely vital for life. Without their pollenation the world would lose about 30% of its food source. No bees, no pollen, no plants, no animals, no humans.

All these other forms of life on this planet are extremely vital for our own existence. And it's extremely sad that we get to notice this only after it begins to disappear...

According to a new study in the (PNAS) team The bees may be dying not from a single toxin or disease but rather from an assault directed by a collection of pathogens.

Here's an article explaining that there might be a cure for a sick bees. <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://insects.about.com/b/2009/04/14/researchers-may-have-found-the-cure-for-dying-honey-bees.htm">http://insects.about.com/b/2009/04/14/r ... y-bees.htm</a><!-- m -->

From my point of view it is because global warming, the climate is changing and all the system is suffering. Because of the global warming everyone is suffering. I think that honey bees are dying because the climate is changing every day, in one day it's warm another one is cold, and from this sudden temperature changing bees are dying because they are not get used with such of cold climate and they can not survive in this conditions. It is very sad because these creatures bring us the best natural product - honey, I htink humanity should do something with that, to help in creating good conditions and to bring our climate to normal activity.

Yes, it is true. Scientists still can't found out the reason of such mass dying.Among the possible explanations are te use of pesticides in agriculture, some new types of parasites,also sress what decrease the immunity in bees. There is a serious threat to agriculture,because bees pollinate many crops. Another possible reason of bees dying is cell phones' radiation, it violates the bees orientation system.
