ABOUT THE BEES

The Bees

It's estimated that if we continue as we are, the bees could be gone in 10 years. After the bees go extinct, they say we will have about 4 years left. That means that if we don't make a change soon, we will have 14 years left. 

If that alone doesn't convince you, there are many other reasons why we need to save the bees. 

Bee pollination is needed for the production of about one-third of our food crops. Examples are: 

  • Cucumber

  • Currants

  • Eggplant

  • Flax

  • Garlic

  • Gooseberries

  • Grapes

  • Horseradish

  • Kale

  • Lettuce

  • Mustard

  • Onions

  • Parsley

  • Peaches

  • Pears

  • Plums

  • Pumpkins

  • Radishes

  • Raspberries

  • Rhubarb

  • Squash

  • Strawberries

  • Sunflowers

  • Alfalfa

  • Almonds

  • Apples

  • Asparagus

  • Beans

  • Beets

  • Blackberries

  • Blueberries

  • Brussels sprouts

  • Buckwheat

  • Cabbage

  • Cantaloupe

  • Cauliflower

  • Celery

  • Cherries

  • Chestnuts

  • Chives

  • Clover

  • Cranberries

  • Sweet potatoes

  • Turnip

  • Watermelon

Its not just the fruits and veggies we would be losing, its most of the flowers as well. Many of the beautiful natural areas would die. 

Bees are also a critical part of the ecosystem. They help the trees, flowers, and food grow and stay alive. The trees, flowers and food are all habitats and resources necessary for most wildlife in the ecosystems. If we didn't have the bees, we would lose many other species with them.
