Bees

Certain species of bee are on the endangered species list. Does this surprise anyone? Development companies are buying up and developing any area they can which in turn gets rid of wildflowers that bees feed off of. People are planting less flowers because, well they can't in some cases. I plant flowers every year for the bees and butterflies I hope I can this year as well.

Most of these women here couldn't care less about the bees. I agree it's a sad state. The frogs as well.

I could be wrong but I thought it was the use of pesticides that was killing off bees.
I think most underestimate the importance of bees.

Yes that is a huge issue but urban sprawl is taking its toll as well.

My kids, ds especially, flip if a bee is anywhere near them. I dodge them if they fly near me but I don't kill them ever.

You should go check it out frogs, toads, and salamander populations are actually plummeting.

Is mostly due to pestasides. It's creating 'lazy bees'. We raise bees almost any type of pestaside will kill them. They are becoming endangered and they are nessary for crops of almost any kind.
