I support the Saving America’s Pollinators Act of 2019, banning insecticides that harm bees and other pollinators. Most of us understand the environmental impacts that these pollinators have on us as an entire species, but some argue that insecticides are more beneficial to crops and other food sources than just some bees. Bees are an important part of every human’s life whether they know it or not, according to authors at pollinator.org, “between 75% and 95% of all flowering plants on the earth need help with pollination – they need pollinators.” A large majority of these plants would be extinct from our planet if it weren’t for bees, flowers that absorb carbon dioxide in the air and turn it into the oxygen we breathe. To put the impact of bees into a more understandable perspective, it is suggested that one out of every three bites of food you eat is there because of pollinators. If America continues to use dangerous insecticides to help efficiency in food production, soon enough we will be hurting ourselves by wiping out several core species. Although the misuse of these chemicals is not the only reason our pollinators are dying, they play a large role in the epidemic and banning them will only do good for the situation.
