The Death Of Bees Explained – Parasites, Poison and Humans

120984 ratings | 6512309 views
In 2015 the bees are still dying in masses. Which at first seems not very important until you realize that one third of all food humans consume would disappear with them. Millions could starve. The foes bees face are truly horrifying – some are a direct consequence of human greed. We need to help our small buzzing friends or we will face extremely unpleasant consequences. Check out THE NOVA PROJECT: www.nova.org.au You can make subtitles for the video here: http://www.youtube.com/timedtext_video?v=GqA42M4RtxE Videos, explaining things.

I'm surprised you did not talk about how honey bees are invasive species that we brought to other country's. The honey bees are native to aisa. The bees that are native to America are different but even there disappearing. Bumble bees are local polinaters, Even wasps even though we don't like them there are so many local polinaters in country's its rediculas. Its actualy getting popular to make houses for local bees. Some people are starting to keep local bees to. I know we all like honey and bees wax. But I hear local polinaters and honey bees are competing for resources. I think only South America, and Australia has bees that produce honey that are native. The Aztecs used to keep the south American breed. Also it does not help we eat do many almonds now. They have to transport 25,000 bees to pollinate them each year. I think gmos are bad for bees to because there sterile so they don't produce nector or polen for bees. I think theres multiple things wiping them out. So many that it's dangerous.

My wife told me she read bee populations are on the rise again in recent years in America. Maybe those Brazilian bees escaping genetically modified was good after all.

Our world is like a computer... Apps all over the place like bees and elephants, Beautiful programs like oceans, and forests, One day the world thought of downloading another app, This app was humans, Were they would protect and serve, Care and maintain balance, They downloaded it... Guess what? Humans was a virus, It destroyed other apps... completely deleting them, It anihilated programs, And made the computer unusable anymore Can't humans see... Many animals in the world rely on their instincts and not their thinking, because if they did eventually they would create infrastructures for better living but not for the living of other creatures. For millions of years that passed humans made the biggest mistake...

WARNING! Carry on reading or your soul will be taken, even if you read the word "warning"! There once was a man named Duke Hunapon. He was lazy, and very uncaring. He always wore a jacket, no matter how warm it was outside. He had an older brother named Micheal who always bossed him around. One day, Micheal was killed, and it affected Duke greatly. He went insane and started murdering people. Soon, he got into a fight with someone and got killed. Now, he roams around as a tall skeleton with a red shirt, and the exact same hoodie that Duke wore. This skeleton was known as "Swapfell Papyrus", and he will kill you if you don't post this on 15 comment sections of any website before your bedtime. If you fail, and you wake up when he's in your room, your death will be slow and very painful. A girl named Lily Lilupanin read this, and didn't listen. She was raped and killed in her sleep. If you copy and paste this on 15 comment sections of any website before your bedtime, Swapfell Papyrus will make you feel safe.

Apparently killer or africanized bees are immune to what ever cause is responsible for lowering bee populations. If bees are instrumental in pollinating crops; perhaps the solution is africanized bees.

Jennifer Dumper (27 days ago)
Lets not also forget that the majority of bee farmers also steal ALL the bees honey and feed them with a sugar solution instead. The honey is essential for helping the bee's immune system and the sugar does nothing to help support this. Therefore, greedy farmers that steal all the honey and leave none for the bees are continuously weakening the bees immune systems leaving them more prone to diseases.
