What would happen if bees die out
• What happens if the
Urgent stocked with honey and jam - in 2035 on the ground can disappear all the bees.
For several decades, scientists around the world has witnessed an alarming decline in the number of both domestic bees, and their wild relatives. If this trend continues, the bee as a species could disappear in just 17 years. Because of this it will be impossible to breed up to a third major agricultures.
It is thanks to the bees apple fruit, grow tomatoes, there are coffee beans - bees pollinate up to 80 percent of the plant world. But the bee population is rapidly declining in recent decades. According to the Institute of Statistical Studies "Higher School of Economics", the number of bees in Russia decreased by 40% since 2008. In the US, 90% of deaths of wild and 80% of domestic bees.
In China, the total disappearance of bees has led to the fact that farmers are now pollinated by hand. For example, in Sichuan workers themselves pollinate apple trees. With the help of special devices made from chicken feathers and cigarette filters, which are dipped in plastic bottles filled with pollen, one person can pollinate 5-10 trees per day.
The problems already experienced by farmers in China, give an idea of what can happen on a global scale. Imagine a world without bees - our supermarkets are empty half. Scientists explain the extinction of bees several factors - that the spread of bee diseases and the use of pesticides, and the emergence of genetically modified crops, as well as the impact of electromagnetic radiation, including the millions of mobile phones.
Some experts believe that the bees are dying because of a certain frequency of electromagnetic radiation. It is a widespread mobile communications system "third generation" with a working frequency in the range of 2 gigahertz (somewhere within this range, it is possible, and is "Bee wave death").
If the bees die after all, the hope remains only on bumblebees: already appeared "farm" of all sizes, which are bred these furry pollinators of plants, including for export. These insects help to significantly increase the yield of fruit and vegetables and, possibly, in the future, the savior of mankind.
