Some fear BEES, some find them irritating!
So, what is there to think about this little creature, that buzzes around ?
Well, if such thoughts pop up in your mind, there is a very simple answer. In this sophisticated modern world, time to think about 'something' simply means 'something' is in danger and if that 'something' is a species, it is nearing extinction due to human activity!
Yes, the sad fact is bees are rapidly disappearing and the prime reason is humans love to speak on the move!
Evidence is fast emerging to support the previously known theory that the use of mobile phones are destroying bees. To be more specific, radiation from mobile phones interferes with bees' navigation systems, preventing the famously homeloving species from finding their way back to their hives.
Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) occurs when a hive's inhabitants suddenly disappear, leaving only queens, eggs and a few immature workers, like so many apian Mary Celestes. The vanished bees are never found, but thought to die singly far from home. The parasites, wildlife and other bees that normally raid the honey and pollen left behind when a colony dies, refuse to go anywhere near the abandoned hives. CCD is found to have a phenomenal spread throughout the world.
The implications of the spread are alarming. Most of the world's crops depend on pollination by bees. Albert Einstein once said that if the bees disappeared, "man would have only four years of life left".
Now, it is for humans to buzz!
