What Happens If All The Bees Die?

The weather is turning increasingly summery outside, allowing me to ride to work without a waterproof coat (for the most part) and sit outside in the garden with a few beers at the weekend.  Inevitably the warmer weather brings with it insects, specifically bees.

Before you curse them for lingering around the BBQ food and buzzing around your pint of cider in the afternoon sun just remember that without them things would be very different.

In being “directly responsible for 70% of the fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts we consume” they actually form a rather critical element in our human lives.

Without bees “our diets would consist mainly of corn, rice, and wheat”, not that appetising I’m sure you’ll agree.  Oh, and a it looks like you’ll also be a good deal poorer and possibly naked too due to a mass decline in the availability of cotton.

So, let’s look after the bees and definitely don’t confuse them with wasps.

Thanks to AsapSCIENCE for the video.
