Why bees are so important to the environment

 Probably because of the pace of life that the cities have, you have not paid attention to the species of bees that also live in the same space and that make an enormous effort to adapt and survive, but, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the various pollinating species such as birds, bees and bats, have an influence of 35 percent on agricultural production worldwide.

Which people can have in their tables the fruit, vegetables, seeds, and oils is the final result of crop pollination. 

This process occurs when pollen is taken from the male anther to the female stigma with the help of bees and other pollinating insects. Without pollination food crops are impossible. Some studies show that for every 10 crop foods we consume a third comes from bees’ pollination.

In the agroindustry, neonicotinoids are a type of pesticide responsible for the decline in bee populations. Endangered pollinators are a worldwide problem that could be very serious for humankind.

A few years ago, the world took measures to protect bees from harmful pesticides. Unfortunately, the current governments in many countries has lifted the prohibition to use these pesticides, which is extremely dangerous for these pollinators.

It is of great importance that governments all over the world enforce environmental policies to counteract the damage that these harmful substances have on pollinator populations that are responsible for food crops.

In their houses, people can also contribute to saving bees by planting gardens that make suitable habitats for them.

Some plants that bees love are:

  • Lavender
  • Rosemary
  • Sage
  • Redbud
  • Aster
  • Oregano or marjoram
  • Sunflower
  • Verbena
