Cyprus marked a sharp decrease in the number of bees

The bees are disappearing at an alarming rate, the Pancyprian Environmental Association (Poas) reported.

The Association condemned the "outrageous illegal use of pesticides, the number of which is increasing and has a number of negative consequences that may be irreversible." The worst negative impact on biodiversity is the disappearance of bees.

"It should be noted that in some areas more than 85 percent of the population of bees disappeared," the statement said.

This means that the main products such as fruits, vegetables and greens are under threat, since in the absence of bees there will be no pollination.

According to scientific research, the phenomenon of bee population reduction is also caused by electromagnetic radiation, while it significantly affects the DNA of useful insects. Most of the radiation comes from the use of wireless technology and telecommunications.

The researchers found that bees pollinate 70 percent of 100 species of crops that feed 90 percent of the world's population.
