13 Reasons As To Why Bee Extinction Is So Real

The extinction of bees isn't just the extinction of bees.

1) At least one-third of the world's crop yields every year require some action by insects.

Bees are pretty good at what they do.

2) Bees are some of the most efficient pollinators.

Pollinating is an art form for bees.

3) It's not just pesticides and insecticides that kill bees.

Us humans carry quite a bit of responsibility. We produce so much pollution, and we don't seem to care.

4) Environmental and agricultural regulations aren't the only things that are able to help save the bees.

Plant a garden. Grow a few trees. There are a lot of ways to help keep the environment healthy.

5) Taking bees out of nature would be taking out vital parts of so many ecosystems.

Bees feed other animals through the plants they take care of or they become prey -- and, bees have to eat too.

6) The fact that bees are dying directly proves the theory of climate change.

There's no way it's just a coincidence when we are losing vital parts of the animal kingdom and the world's ecosystems. We are destroying bees' natural habitats and creating unsustainable circumstances for the needs of different bee species.

7) It is estimated that each year, upwards of around one-third of the bee population has been going extinct.

With there being no compensation for this, and more bees dying than being born, we are faced with a huge epidemic. If you do the math, after 5 years, theoretically we'd be left with about 13% of the original bee population from the first year.

8) Between the time that bees officially die out, there would be substantial price increases for produce that require insect interaction.

Soon enough, our salad that costs probably around $0.50 to you if you buy bulk produce will increase in price accordingly as to the rate of bees dying. If supply is below demand, demand will have to be rectified in order to meet economic market equilibriums.

9) Coffee will eventually be ridiculously expensive.

The fix for our morning blues won't be as accessible and affordable if we do not compensate for the danger caused to bee colonies. Better start curing those withdrawal symptoms soon!

10) Not only would food production sustainability decrease, but the sustainability of human life as a whole would decrease.

If we lose bees, and then lose too many plants, we won't be able to breathe for much longer, as these plants help heal the ozone as well as producing oxygen for our respiratory needs.

11) Despite how much we hate bees, bees really are our friends.

They help commercial agriculture, personal gardening, flora and fauna of preserved land, and many other parts of nature and the earth.

12) We don't give enough credit to bee farmers and multi-hive beekeepers.

These guys are specially trained to handle bees and to harvest the honey from the nectar that bees carry back to the hive from pollination. They wear special suits that, on the hottest of days, are probably as uncomfortable as a mascot costume on a game day. These guys are totally kick-ass.

13) Because we don't care that bees are dying, and many of those who do care are not active about it, and very passive.

We can talk about bees all we want, but that doesn't slow down the rate of the extinction of the bee population.

There are too many reasons that we need bees, and the entire internet is accessible at your fingertips. Learn something about the world and teach yourself about the importance of insect agriculture and how you can help slow down this process of extinction as well as helping heal our planet!
