Filed under: Science!Scary!InsectsBugsGIFs

Zombees found in Vermont! Infection spreads to Eastern U.S.!

Vermont is already lost to us. We need to send in a nuke NOW!

But… all those innocent people!

Damnit man, it’s for the greater good! There’s a “zombee” outbreak!! Oh no! "Not the bees!!"

Vermont beekeepers already have enough hardship when it comes to facing wild temperature swings, colony collapse, and mite infestations, but now the latest hurdle they must cross is…. Zombie bees. Zombees.

This is the first instance of a zombie bee infection in the Eastern U.S. of A., but luckily, these aren’t magical undead bees from hell, they’re just full of

Giant Monster Hornets Are Going To KILL You!!

Filed under: Scary!InsectsDanger!Bugs

Giant monster hornets are coming to kill you!!

Have you heard of these giant Asian hornets??

They're pretty much exactly how they sound… they're hornets and they're huge. (Also, they're from Asia!)

And they're killing the shiz out of everyone!!*

*(Not actually everyone…)

At least 28 people have died from these bees and hundreds more have been injured in attacks!

The bees will chase people for hundreds of meters and sting them hundreds of times.

Oh, and did we mention the average stinger length of a giant Asian hornet is about a quarter-inch??

Right now, they're said to only be in China, but the fear is they're spreading, especially since some were reported being seen in Illinois last year.

Well, guess we're gonna buy some plate armor and never leave the house! LOLz!

Short-Haired Bumblebees Reintroduced Into The UK After 25 Years

Filed under: Science!InsectsBugs

This is so ahmayzing!! Go science!!

Conservationists in the UK are trying to bring back an extinct species of bumblebee!!

The short-haired bumblebee is being reintroduced into the Kent area.

Several queens have been raised and released into the area in an attempt to start a breeding population.

Since the project started, they've recorded young worker bees in a 2.5 mile area… the first to be seen in 25 years!!

Clearly, the program is working! That's so great!

The whole point of bringing these bees back is to help bring flowering meadows back to the British countryside.

Sounds like a beautiful idea!

Check out the video (above) to see how they're raising and releasing these queens!

Science Figures Out How Bees Fly!

Filed under: Science!InsectsBugs

We didn't know that this was such a mystery!

Insects have to beat their wings up to 500 times a second to stay aloft! That shiz cray!

Exactly how bees are able to do this, science didn't know… until now!!

Two biophysicists at the Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute were studying the difference between insect flight muscles and vertebrate muscles.

The researchers said:

U.S. Government Steps In To Protect Bees!!

Filed under: InsectsBugs

The U.S. Government is stepping in to protect bees!

This nation's bees are dying and no one was doing anything to help them…

Until the U.S. government came riding in on a bald eagle, an American flag waving in the wind behind them.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is stepping in to make sure warning labels are placed on common neonictinoid pesticides.

Those specific types of pesticides are detrimental to bees and can cause Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD).

CCD is basically when worker bees just start disappearing from a hive for no reason.

Without a work force, the hive can't survive, and so the colony collapses.

Bees are responsible for pollinating about $30 BILLION worth of crops every year! That's a third of the food we consume!!

We had no idea that bees were THAT integral to our daily lives! This is really a big deal!!

C'mon, government! Let's save those bees!!
