The extinction of the bees continues

The United Nations has expressed great concern due to the strong decrease in the number of bees under the onslaught of numerous pests and pollution, and encouraged to make every effort to stop this process.
According to the UNEP report this problem every year more and more manifest itself, especially in the northern hemisphere. The main reasons that affect the extinction of this pollution, parasites (especially Varroa mite), pesticides, bee decline and some others.

In this case, according to Kompyulenta, referring to materials AFP, it is necessary to understand that in a hundred crops that are the source of 90% of food products, 70 are pollinated by bees. Of these insects, literally, the future of humanity.

Overall, the contribution of bees in the world economy is estimated at € 153 billion ($ 212 billion) — is 9.5% of the total food market. And if all the bees die after all — yield some types of fruit, nut, seed yields were reduced by 90% of the tragic.

In the past few years, the number of bees is not reduced only in Africa, Australia and South America. In Europe, the numbers had dropped from 10 to 30 percent to 85 percent — in the Middle East, 30% in the U.S..

It is still a mystery why this happens for the past 40 years. It is difficult to say why the process intensified in the late 1990s. Probably the thing for several reasons. Hardly anyone would deny that nature, which has remained unchanged for thousands or millions of years, in recent years, had to adapt to changes on an unprecedented scale, caused by human activity.
