Transcript of Plan Bee

Causes Man Power Genetically Engineered Bees Robo-Bees Conclusion The Bee Population is dying due to colony collapse disorder which is unknown right now but is believed to be mostly caused by vorroa mites.

There are three major plans to solve this problem robotic bees, genetically engineered bees, and man power replacing the bees. All of these require lots of time, effort and money. Bees and their importance Pesticides-(insecticides)
intended to kill pests, can kill bees too Plan Bee In the Maoxian county of China, all the bees have died. So the people are forced to pollinate the pear and apple trees themselves. Genetically engineered "cleaner bees"
Cleans out dead larvae and pupae that are dead and dying.
this protects against varroa mites. Robotic Bees could replace bees if all the bees died.


Harvard is working on this project to make a robot that could pollinate, do search and rescue, weather research, and traffic control Saving the Declining Bee Population

They also are responsible for pollinating 1/3 of all the food we eat. 35 states have reported cases of bee colony collapse disorder.

Beekeepers have reported an average loss of 45% of bee population. The number of managed honeybee colonies in the U.S. has declined from 5.9 million in 1947 to 2.4 million in 2005

This disorder is called colony collapse disorder Species of Declining Bees in North America

Bombus (Bombus) franklini (Frison)
Bombus (Bombus) occidentalis Greene
Bombus (Bombus) affinis Cresson
Bombus (Bombus) terricola Kirby
Bombus (Fervidobombus) sonorus Say
Bombus (Fervidobombus) pensylvanicus (DeGeer)
Epeoloides pilosula (Cresson) Cell Phones
Queen bee lays less eggs because of radio waves Pathogens
give bees a virus
vorroa mites- killed more than 2 billion bees, that's one in three colonies
Nosema Ceranae (parasite) Global warming
causes more growth in pathogens in colonies
Bees are not accustomed to unusual weather changes Isn't even close to being done, but could be completed in the near future. The Green Brain Project from the United Kingdom proposes to be completed by 2015 They are also engineering "groomer bees"
these bees groom off the mites and parasites Bees provide a service estimated to be worth $15 billion a year in America alone. This could provided thousands of jobs for people, but is that worth the life of all the bees? (NO) Sources The Bee Population is dying due to colony collapse disorder, there are three major plans to solve this: robotic bees, genetically engineered bees, and man power replacing the bees. What can you do to help?
