Save bees by leaving a spoonful of sugar in your backyard

Save bees by leaving a spoonful of sugar in your backyard

Bees might seem like they’re insignificant because of their size. However, we were surprised to find out just how important they were to our ecosystem. Did you know that it’s impossible to live in the world if these flying creatures suddenly disappeared?

Newsner reports that bees have the enormous responsibility of “feeding 90 percent of the world’s population.”

One of the most famous advocates for preserving the life of bees is Sir David Attenborough. The British zoologist implores as much people as he can to save these insects from extinction.

It turns out that in the last five years, the bee population has been reduced by a third. People who are unaware of these creatures’ task would not take this fact seriously. But Sir David Attenborough isn’t going to stop with his warnings.

He recently wrote this on Facebook in the hopes of garnering some attention:

“If bees were to disappear from the face of the earth, humans would have just 4 years left to live.”

This is because a big chunk of our food is pollinated by bees and if they disappear, we can kiss all those produce goodbye. What we can do to help these insects is to leave a simple mixture of sugar and water in a spoon and leave it outside our homes.

The renowned environmentalist left an explanation on social media

“If you find a tired bee in your home, a simple solution of sugar and water will help revive an exhausted bee. Simply mix two tablespoons of white, granulated sugar with one tablespoon of water, and place on a spoon for the bee to reach. You can also help by sharing this post to raise awareness.”
