Do you imagine that many days you can live without food? Well, if you have water to drink, it will last two or three days. We all need food to survive. But the future of our food production is in jeopardy with the massive decline in the bee population. Bees play an important role in pollination. And according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAQ), bees are responsible for pollinating 75% of the world’s crops. 

Therefore, you can understand the consequences of their deaths on the ecosystem. Significantly, more than 500 million bees have died in Brazil in just three months. Especially, beekeepers in four Brazilian provinces have lost 400 million beekeepers in the Rio Grande do Sul, 7 million in Mato Grosso do Sul., 50 million in Sanaa Catarina, and 45 million in Mato Grosso do Sul. 

Aldo Machado, vice president of the Rio Grande do Sul Beekeeping Association in Brazil, said that within 48 hours, tens of thousands of bees in his colony became ill and died.

As soon as healthy bees began to remove bees from the hive, they became unclean. They began to die en masse.”

Many researchers have approved nearly 300 new pesticides in Brazil since January. And the increase in use has directly impacted the rat population revolution. Police suspect the use of these pesticides is a result. Some researchers were even able to detect pesticide particles, such as fipronil, in dead bees. Insecticides are widely used to remove fleas and ticks. 

“The death of all these bees is a sign that we are drinking poison,” said Alberto Bastos, president of the Brazilian Federal District Breeding Association.

We will soon experience a tragic death! Because of the damage to nature or the consumption of products that we have poisoned ourselves.
