For the past couple of years, the wild honey bees are becoming an endangered species in Mexico. Different activists are establishing bee hives so that the bees will continue to thrive. The lack of bees can lead to a lack of food being produced within the country since bees are one of the major pollinators in nature.
Let’s look at one of the reasons why the population of bees are dwindling in Mexico. Over the past year, agriculturists have caused for the tequila market to boom. The reason why is due to genetically modified agave. That’s right – GMO agave.
That means that the genetic altering of agave allows for pesticides to be sprayed on fields all throughout Mexico. The more pesticides sprayed means that the bee population will continue to go down.
