I feel like a hipster because thanks to this video I knew about the mass bee deaths going around before Time magazine wrote an article about it.

so is it a question of ethics when Chinese traditional medicine men use bees to sting patients, since they believe it can help prevent fatal disease?

that was the trigger for the bees to rise they arent dead they were hiding training for this day to wings my friends

Rory Dimond says:

Actually, native solitary bees and bumblebees are better pollinators than honewybees. A mason bee can pollinate 3x more flowers than a honeybee in a given time.
That said, they are suffering the same impacts as honeybees, alongside habitat loss in agricultural landscapes. Hence why farmers are reliant on ‘proffessional’ honeybees.

there part of a food chain, a just feed mosquitoes has high nutrients level making it good to feed one.

flees and bedbug are put of a food chain but more impotent they encourage grooming, witch is helping build a better relationship between the herd

Gremunky says:

mosquitoes pollinate which is why we can’t kill them in africa like we did in france. but i have no idea what fleas are good for.

Honey bees pollinate the vast majority plants. The others don’t function on the same level. We would have mass starvation if we lost all the honey bees.

Sander Duson says:

Bee nice!

Christopher Williams says:

Yes! I wasn’t the only one who immediately thought of Doctor Who… On a more serious note, what about all the other kinds of bees that pollinate other than honey bees?

iamacookiecow says:

I do plan on committing mosquitocide in the future. Their only purpose is to distribute viruses

Spiders, wasps, bats….most of these creatures have a “use” of some kind or another. But not mosquitoes or fleas or bedbugs! Those little devils can go extinct for all I care. >.>

Basically guys, just, just, DON’T KILL ANYTHING! That’s what these recent studies on insects and animals are beginning to suggest.

I believe bees should be treated as first class citizens instead of as insects.

dailydissolution says:

They are suffering immune deficiency from mobile radiation, so they are catching disease.
