Bees are Carrying Pesticides into the World’s Honey
Bees are responsible for about 30 percent of the world’s food supply. Our fruits and vegetables would not grow without bees. Many farmers use chemical products known as pesticides to protect food plants from insects. Studies have shown that these chemicals are also hurting the bees.
Now it turns out that the pesticides are also showing up in the world’s honey supply. And researchers are wondering how that could affect us. Richard Glassborow is with the London Beekeepers’ Association. “Well, bees are insects, and pesticides are designed to take out pest insects, but they’re pretty indiscriminate.” The problem is an unusual kind of pesticides called neonicotinoids.
A recent study found evidence of these pesticides in most of the world’s bees. The findings were published in the journal Science.
