Save our Bumble Bees.

Hello friends, hope you are all well. Today I would like to bring to your attention the near extinction of the humble bumblebee.
They provide so much for humanity, they keep us alive, they work harder than any other civilization except maybe ants, and yet they are close to dying off for good.
There are currently 24 species of Bumblebees in the UK. and even bees which were extinct in the late eighties are believed to be getting reintroduced to our shores, it is the short-haired bumblebee.

Impact of bumblebee declines.

It is well-known that bumblebees are great pollinators, and therefore have a key role in producing much of the food that we eat. Through the pollination of many commercial crops such as tomatoes, peas, apples and strawberries, insects are estimated to contribute over £600 million per annum to the UK economy (2015), and in doing so prop up the £108 billion-per-year food and drink industry in Britain. Across the EU, insect pollinators are estimated to contribute €14.2 billion annually to the EU economy (2012). If bumblebee and other insect pollinator declines continue, the extremely high cost of pollinating these plants by other means could significantly increase the cost of fruit and vegetables (hand-pollinating British crops has been estimated to cost £1.8 billion annually).
We will eventually die after the bees as everything we eat is practically pollinated with a bumblebee.

Please do your bit and encourage bumblebees in your garden, they will not harm you in any way, they are only interested in the flowers and shrubs.

we need them to survive.
