US Named First Native Endangered Bee

By on

The US Fish and Wildlife has named the native rusty-patched bumblebee to become the first endangered bee.

It has been reported that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has noticed a sudden decline but sadly the officials don’t know what’s causing this.

In a talk with Serina Jepson, Director of Endangered Species and Aquatic Programs, she said that there could be several reasons behind deaths of bee but the two most obvious reasons are diseases and pesticides.

Another report from the concerned department says that colonies of these bees have decreased by 87 percent since the 1990s, which is a drastic fall.

The report also adds that the bees previously thrived in 31 states but as per as current report, they are left only in 13 US states.
