Bees are very interesting insects. In one way they are defying the natural law of weight compared to flight and in other ways they are very efficient and precise little creatures.
They are built very large and have very small wings. Strangely, they can fly which is interesting because they don’t have the large wings that would be needed for its size.
They are very strong and have an interesting life system. There are many different types of bees like the: bumblebee, hornet, honey bee, western honey bee, etc. Each type has its own features. A bee has a standard defense system but has a complicated outcome.
Queen and worker bumblebees can sting. Unlike in honeybees, the bee can sting repeatedly without injuring itself; by the same token, the stinger is not left in the wound. Bumblebee species are not normally aggressive, but may sting in defence of their nest, or if it feels endangered itself.
There are many bees that have a complication. If a bee feels like it is in danger it will sting, but the stinger will be left behind. The bee needs its stinger or it will die.
Certain bees are in danger of going extinct and many have been put on the endangered list.
The main causes for the extinction of bees is pesticides and parasites. Ever since WWII the use of pesticides has increased by extreme amounts.
One third of the world’s food supply is made by bees. If all bees go extinct we would be left with no crops, flowers, or plants. If bees disappeared off the earth mankind would estimatedly only have four years or so to live. We wouldn’t be able to regrow any plants to make more food. If bees don’t have food then we don’t have food.
Easy ways to help protect them is to plant more flowers and plants in your yard, try to eat bee friendly foods that don’t contain too much honey and things, and most importantly, don’t kill them. You can easily find a safe way to move their home somewhere new or just let them stay where they set up camp. Always remember that if you don’t bother them, then they won’t bother you.
