The Problem

There are less bees because of what people do.

People use insecticide to kill insects that are pests.

But insecticide kills bees too.

‘Overgrazing’ and building destroy the habitats where bees live.

 

We need bees, so that they can pollinate plants.

What would happen if there were no more bees?
