Declining bee populations could cause shortage of food crops

The declining bee populations in agricultural areas is affecting food crops, according to a new study by the Rutgers University, published by the Royal Society. Wild bees are suffering due to the climate crisis, loss of habitat and the use of toxic pesticides. This comes as a major warning sign as three quarters of the world’s food crops are dependent on pollinators. The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization states that over the last 50 years, the amount of crops dependent on insects and pollinators has grown 300%. With this decline in bee population, certain fruit and vegetable varieties could become rarer, and thus more expensive.
