Save the Bees

According to Alex Shenker (2017), honey bees are going extinct because of the excessive use of pesticides in crops and certain blood-sucking parasites that only reproduce in bee colonies. It was stated that bee extinction would affect plants, animals, availability of fuels, topography, clothing, and human life in a negative way. In addition, out of the 100 crop species that provide us with 90% of our food, 70% are pollinated by bees because they are the primary initiators of reproduction among plants. Without bees, hunger and poverty will be very common because there will be less production of crops.

Since the excessive use of pesticides has had a major role in the bees’ decline, this petition promotes to save the bees by banning the use of pesticides/insecticides in crops.
