Opinion: Bee Shortage


By Ava Perez, RT reporter

Bees are dying off at an unsustainable rate, with serious consequences for our natural world. 

They play a huge role as pollinators, and losing them would have a devastating effect across all ecosystems.

 I feel like we need to take action quickly before it’s too late. We can try to expand bee habitats and stop the use of bee-killing pesticides. 

Over the last few decades, pesticides have become what beekeepers say are a necessary evil among crop farmers. 

But those chemicals coat the seeds of many crops and the amount of pesticides that reside on plants that honeybees pollinate is a huge factor in bees dying off. 

If we continue to not use pesticides and help the bee environment I’m sure the bee population will increase dramatically.
