Dennis vanEngelsdorp: A Plea for Bees

Bees are extraordinary creatures.They helped to keep what we have left of trees and plants. Bees help plants to keep plants and others alive. Bees help to produce need plants by traveling and pollinating.

We are killing bees and it is helping to cause global warming.

Dennis vanEnglesdrop is a bee evolutionist. He explains how bees effect our environment. In this talk he says the reason the bee hives are dying off is because of the pesticides we use n our plants.

Dennis has brought to our attention a global problem. Thirty-six percent of bees are dying every year. If our pollinators dye we could go with them.
so we need to watch out with what we put on our lawns. The point I get from this is that the desire for a beautiful lawn is not as important as letting our world die.

The pollinators in the world determine how our plants grow and breed and the largest number of pollinators is bees. IN Pennsylvania 400 known species have been discovered and now many cannot be found.

I think if we do not pay attention to the animals around us, we will die too.
