Double threat may WIPE OUT honey bees, scientists warn: Pesticides and dwindling food supplies are killing them off at a record pace

(Natural News) For many years now, scientists have been warning us of the decreasing honey bee population. A new research reveals that honey bees could soon go extinct due to the increased uses of chemical pesticides and the severely low amount of food supplies for these poor creatures. A University of California, San Diego study shows that chemical pesticides, as well as a lack of food for honey bees, are threatening their already low population.

Clothianidin and thiamethoxam are two of the neonicotinoid pesticides that are killing off these vital insects. Researchers found that these chemicals, combined with low nutrition, highly impact the life span of honey bees, and severely increased the number of bee deaths by 50 percent. The effect of both these lethal factors are the same as giving poison to a person suffering from malnutrition – both are lethal individually, but together accelerate mortality. The chemicals as mentioned above affect honey bees by decreasing their hemolymph (bee blood) sugar levels and cause the insect to lose energy.

On the other hand, honey bees’ food supply is greatly decreased by land development. The unnecessary rise of developments for commercial and residential purposes are reducing flower sources for the bees. Deforestation is also a factor, as well as commercial agriculture practices. By creating more “lives” for people, the lives of honey bees become endangered.
