Nectar Quest: The ‘Bees and Flowers Mutual Admiration Society’ Under Threat

Bee

Story at-a-glance -

  • A new 30-year study from the University of Bristol in England has revealed that bees and flowers share a symbiotic relationship based on the electric currents each emits. This affects not only the pollination and proliferation of the plants, but also the nourishment of the bees and the hives.
  • Bees not only can sense the negative charge coming from flowers using color, shape, pattern and humidity, but are able to change the electrical charge to tell which ones contain nectar and if another bee has beat them to it.
  • Bees worldwide are threatened by a number of ecological and environmental factors, such as pesticides, fungi, GMOs and cell phone networks.
  • The world’s food supply is threatened because bees and the way they pollinate and carry food to their hives is threatened.
