Well that's the problem then. Wikipedia isn't a great source of true information. Anyone can edit it and the people in power have their biases. As I said, 90% of our crops we use don't even need pollination from insects. Most that need pollination are grown in a way that wind does the entire job. What you have read is something written from the 70s that has been shown many times to be a lie and is still used. Even with your untrue Wikipedia information it doesn't say how much is done by bee's... Not that untrue information is worth anything in the first place
I did. From Wikipedia 'It is estimated that one third of the human food supply depends on pollination by insects, birds and bats, most of which is accomplished by bees, whether wild or domesticated'
No. This is not true. I have already stated why. Google the facts.
I agree, it is about education. Spreading falls information doesn't help as once someone see's they have been told a lie they tend to not believe anything related to it. Those crops are spread by wind and not bee's. They're some of the most used crops. Bee's are all not the online bug or insect that pollinate. We should help bee's and understand what they actually do. We shouldn't believe that and spread myths. It is one reason people roll their eyes and ignore things like this... Because they know most is untrue. Surely deluding ourselves isn't the right thing? I got these. I also have a beehive in my allotment. Most crops I grow and most grown here have absolutely no need for bee's... But bee's need help. Saying that 90% of crops need them is complete lies... But it's said that in most conversations about bee's. Just lies sailboat by people ignorant on the issue. It isn't even close to 90% and the people who actually could most help bee's know this because they're farmers and crop growers... They see the lies and it makes them not care... I've seen it.
Not quite true, wind pollination helps to a point and bees help stem higher pollination as the majority of plants have flowers so bees encourage pollination. Anyone can grow what’s known as simple crops like corn or tomatoes although “you have to shake” said crops to self pollinate so it includes us humans as well. its not a case of spreading lies it’s more about education and encourage the world to look after our bees. but then I won’t have a clue even with 25 years experience within the industry, then again you’ve probably been eating the food from our growers for a considerable time now? Small world isn’t it?
