The Disappearance of Bees
Albert Einstein once said that if bees ever disappeared, humans would be in trouble. Many scientists today agree. Bees have been disappearing since 2006. At this rate, bees may be gone entirely in the near future.
Bees are more important to us than you might think. Bees pollinate plants. Without bees, plants could not grow fruit. If bees died out, crops like apples, cucumbers, and grapefruits could die, too!
Why are bees dying more quickly than before? Some scientists believe that mobile phones are a problem for bees. They think the signals from phones confuse bees. This makes it harder for them to find their way back to their hive. The poisons used on crops are another problem. The poisons are supposed to kill bugs that eat the crops, but they kill bees, too!
Governments and scientists are working together to stop bees from disappearing. What can we do to help? One thing we can do is to use less poison when we grow plants. This will make it easier for bees to stay healthy and strong!
