Rio de Janeiro: Bees promote agriculture and farming. If these flies are gone today, humanity will be fed for food in just a few months.
Now the news has come from Brazil that the bees’ death there has been growing very fast and since the first month of 2019, there have been 50 million beekeepers, while experts have seen piles of dead bees themselves. ۔
According to Alda Makhno, head of the Beekeeping Organization, when live bees came to clear a pile of dead bees, they became infected and died of illness, and thus the endless stream of bees began.
After careful estimates, experts said that half a billion, or 50 million bees, have been killed in four southern provinces of Brazil so far this year. This is due to the indiscriminate use of pesticides used in agriculture that is nothing short of poisonous for bees.
Often flies have found the effects of ‘fipronil’ drugs, which have already been banned in the US and Europe under human cancer concerns, but in Brazil, not only is this widely used insecticide used, but more laws are being softened. Freedom to sell prohibited drugs has been provided.
Brazilian farms are now plagued with hazardous chemicals as the use of pesticides on crops has increased sevenfold from 1990 to 2016. Thus 20% of commodities, fruits, and vegetables are badly contaminated with hazardous chemicals, but they are the first prey flies that guarantee the survival of every agricultural piece.
In 2018 alone, more than 15,000 human-infected cases of pesticide poisoning have been registered in Brazil, and poor farmers are the first victims. In 2018, a woman was killed, some were diagnosed with lung disease and one person was blind.
