          Pollinators are important because they help fertilize food humans eat, they naturally pollinate and help plants grow and also keeps food prices low. Pollinators are dying and why it's happening. How pollinators pollinate crops to allow them to grow. The consequences of losing the pollinators and how it will affect the environment. At the end the conclusion.

          Pollinators are dying because the use of pesticides for keeping bugs away but it is killing pollinators too. But that is not the only reason they are dying they also are dying because of Colony collapse disorder (CCD) is the phenomenon that occurs when the majority of worker bees in a colony disappear and leave behind a queen, plenty of food and a few nurse bees to care for the remaining immature bees and the queen. Also, pollinators are dying because when farmers grow crops they grow just one crop but the bees need more wildflower so then they don't get enough pollen.

          Pollinators are VERY important because they go to plant-to-plant collecting pollen from one flower to put it into other plant so they can grow properly. This means pollinators are doing us people tremendous favor. So now food companies that use pesticides should either throw them away or make a greenhouse where there would be no pests or grubs. But if companies like Monsanto don't stop doing this they will end up killing all pollinators and having to start going around their field with cue tips and pollin and do it themselves. But not only Monsanto would have to do this it would be the entire world! (Just because of Monsanto)

          Many issues will happen with the environment if pollinators go extinct. First of all the food price would skyrocket because farmers would have to hire people to put pollin into their crops so then it would make the food harder to grow which=more money. Millions of flowers wouldn't grow worldwide because the lack of pollen in the flowers. But most of all the food won't taste good this will happen because many companies such as Monsanto won't bother to pollinate the crops so then they would taste bad. This is the effect on the environment without pollinators.

          In conclusion, all pollinators are important because they help us humans live better because they pollinate ⅓ of the food we eat. Without pollinators we would have to pollinate plant's ourselves which could cause food price increase. When they pollinate they help millions of wildflower so worldwide. This is why pollinators are very important.
