- What can beat flowers in your garden, patio, or little pot? Well lots of things but they are really great to have around right? They take pollutes out of the air, decorate the room, and you get to speak to them without the plant talking back! It's like a Teddy bear that you can love just the same but at the same times it's alive. For the people who are not allowed to have even a fish, a plant can be a sure fire way to convince your parents to get something alive but never really having to take care of it. As long as appropriate sunlight and water is applied you'll have a healthy and beautiful plants for years to come!
Now, since that was the introduction, let's get down to the basics. The real reason this topic was created was because we need to save the bees. Yeah, you know the thing you might be allergic to or the thing that makes honey for you to add to your cereal or green tea. Those buzzing insects we believe are an annoying nuisance is actually the one thing we need to survive on earth.
Think about it, bees pollinate. That means they keep the flowers healthy by going around and collecting pollen and nectar then moving on to another flower.
What if the bees disappeared completely?
We. Die. Simple as that.
It's not just flowers that bees affect, it's EVERY PLANT. Apples, oranges, cherries, mainly all vegetables, mainly all fruits. Without bees all these major food spruces will disappear and we'll die off. You might be thinking that we can survive off of fruits and veggies and live on meats and other food groups. WRONG.
Bees affect everything! Remember that? Well remember when I said flowers and plants take out harmful pollutes in the air? Well without bees to properly care for them the plants die and we are left with a smoggy sky that slowly chokes all animals and us. It will be like when a meteor struck the earth and a dust cloud so large it killed the plants and eventually the dinosaurs. It won't go away because there won't be enough plants to produce enough healthy oxygen.
We need bees, you might not think so but we do. Millions of bees have died already but there is still hope!
