Without bees in our world, we, the human race, will be nearly extinct within 4 years
Why in the world should I worry about the bees? Well, if we eliminated the bees, it would mean that perhaps not all, but at least a big part of the world population would not survive. We need the honeybees to pollinate a large percentage of our crops.
If the bees pollinate no more, it would lead to mass starvation. Bees play such an important role in mass flowering crops. Only some plants would survive if the bees are gone.
What bees mean to our world
If they go missing, you will do without more than just not having honey at breakfast. There are a lot more things involved than that sweet and healthy product. Did you know there are 20.000 bee species? They are doing a monumental job, as they are responsible for pollinating one-third of the food we eat.
Here you can see a nice PDF from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, giving a lot of insight into this busy insect.
Bees are very important for biodiversity and maintaining the ecosystems, which are important for plants, humans, and the bees. Each year, on the 20th of May, we celebrate World Bee Day worldwide, so we realize what we have to be thankful for.
You can do your part, whether in your garden or on your balcony, grow some plants bees love. It is easy and the bees will be grateful.
Some bee stories
Sadly, the bees are in decline and it started over 100 years ago when the first bee warning became visible. On the southern coast of England, you will find the Isle of Wight. On that island, in early 1900, Guglielmo Marconi built the world’s first permanent radio station. It did not take long before the bees started dying.
In 1906 Agustus Imms from Christ College wrote that the bees were getting weak and soon afterward would drop dead. The attempt to import new colonies from the mainland was a catastrophe, as the new bees died by the thousands within a week.
At that time one did not know what caused this, so they gave it the name Isle of Wight disease. It was the first warning, but we did not understand.
This is a cute video just under 6 minutes you should not miss.
The harrowing effects of 5G
In 2019, more than a century after the Isle of Wight die off, when on the 19th of November, an antenna was placed some 250 meters away from the home of Angela in Melbourne, Australia. She took a photograph when the mast was put up and the next day observed something alarming. Her driveway was covered with dead and dying bees.
Only 2 months later, her once beautiful garden full of plants and trees had become completely silent. No more insect, no more bees and the little kumquat that once would be full of fruit did not show any sign of growing more. The olive had also stopped producing. Such a sad panorama, to be surrounded by dying nature must be awful.
Now there are protests on the Isle of Wight. The people do not want to live on a “smart” island. Radio waves are dangerous for humans and all living things. Radio waves penetrate skin and bones, cell walls and mitochondria.
When you put your food in the microwave oven, it alters your food on the cellular level. Radio waves cause cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Migratory birds get confused and nature as a whole is suffering and slowly dying, just like us. Listen, the bees are sending us a wake-up call.
An enjoyable book on beekeeping
Are you thinking to give beekeeping a try? You will need some guidance and that is why this little book will be a big help. Jamie Stevens takes you by the hand and shows you how to keep bees.
Slovenia has become the first country to put 5G on hold for the moment and now Switzerland has followed. That is fantastic news and I hope many more countries will follow, as 5G is bad for you, your family, and friends. It is also bad for bees and nature as a whole. Let us put a stop to this before it is too late.
The EU has banned another bee-killing pesticide. That is also wonderful news. This is the fourth neonicotinoid that is banned from use on crops in an effort to protect the busy pollinators. The sad thing is, that the U.S. is still backing the pesticide industry.
One wonders why, as scientific studies have pointed out, it is very harmful to nature and is killing birds, fish and of-course the bees. Then it is harmful to humans. Why are we doing this to ourselves? Perhaps I should rephrase the question a tic differently. Why do we accept others to decide we should eat harmful stuff?
Many species suffer from pesticides
We are poisoning the earth, and many species suffer the consequences. Take, for example, the White-tailed deer.
This medium-sized pretty deer lives in North America, Central America, Ecuador, and South America. It is present in quite a few European countries as well as in New Zealand, Cuba, Jamaica, and the Bahamas. You all know this deer from the Walt Disney film “Bambi”
What does a deer eat?
The menu of a deer depends on the season and where he or she lives. Each year they can eat up to 2000 lb (910 kg) of vegetable matter. They eat things like shoots, leaves, plants, grasses, legumes, acorns, fruit, and corn. Corn? that is a crop which is heavily sprayed and there we have the problem.
Nature Scientific Reports published a study which included 2 years of information. Deer suffered debilitating conditions and fawn (babies) suffered increased mortality rates. They fed these deer corn and soy, 2 crops that are normally sprayed for insect control.
We, the human species, also suffer greatly because of pesticides. Did you hear that sad story of 3 babies who were born in Florida in 2005? They were born with severe birth defects from mothers who were working at Ag-Mart Produce. This company produces chemically treated tomatoes and other agriculture produce.
Look at this list of how health can be affected by pesticides
Neurodevelopmental delays and cognitive impairment. Your child has a higher risk to develop brain cancer, autism and attention deficit, ASD and AD/HD. I mean, why are we doing this? We are harming future generations. With our actions, we are harming the total creation.
We have to come to our senses and demand our leaders to protect us and nature. We need the bees and everything else which makes our world so beautiful, to live a healthy and happy life.
When you buy honey, take care it is good, raw honey. Like that, you can be sure to have all the benefits of the many vitamins and minerals it contains.
