It's well-known that bees provide us with various irreplaceable benefits. But we should stop thinking only about the benefits it brings to our health but to value its most extensive function in the natural chain that is pollination, without which life on the planet would definitely be impossible; the bee is the only insect that provides food to human beings.
Bees and biodiversity
Biodiversity is the process of interaction between living beings and the planet, the relationship between them, and of course, the biological response of the environment to species. In this process the bee has a vital function since the world agriculture depends on 70% of these insects, said more clearly 70 of every 100 products that we use to feed depend exclusively on the bees. The balance is self-explanatory: Without pollination plants could not reproduce and without plants the fauna would also disappear and, consequently, humans.
Theories that explain his disappearanceOne of the hypotheses that explains the massive disappearance of bees is mobile telephony. This definitive conclusion was affirmed by the Federal Institute of Technology of Switzerland, after proving that the waves emitted during a conversation are capable of disorienting them to the point of death, losing their sense of direction and thus their life dynamics.
Through more than 83 experiments researcher and biologist Daniel Favre demonstrated that in the presence of cellular communication the bees produce a noise ten times greater than usual and this behavior is what they use to warn the group that it's urgent to leave the hive causing the CCD phenomenon or "colony collapse problem". The other, of course, is the use of pesticides in crop spraying. These products contain chemicals that act like neutoxins and adhere to insects when collecting flowers.
Then, they pull them to the hives where they contaminate the rest of the products they process in common, such as wax, propolis and various honey with the fatal consequence of affecting the rest of the honeycomb including the queen bee without which the hive inevitably disappears. Also when these massive migrations occur, the young insects are abandoned and logically they also disappear.
Solutions:It's very difficult for the scientific community to propose solutions that can be achieved. The technological infrastructure and the current mentality would make it very difficult for people to give up living without the use of telecommunication towers or radio frequencies, as well as to abandon the use of sprays, even at the domestic level, for which a delayed reaction is feared.
The international organization Greenpeace proposes the following urgent measures:
- Research and monitoring of bee health.
- Immediately ban the use of toxic pesticides.
- Promote natural agricultural alternatives.
- Create a system of protected areas free of telecommunications.
" Daily news documents the slightest drop or rise of the stock market or the auction industry. However, we deliberately ignore the balance of the services provided by nature, such as the absorption of carbon dioxide and the release of oxygen; protection against erosion and pollination of fruits and seeds, and without pollination all economic systems would collapse. A world without bees would be a world without people . "
