Sciences that believe they have found out Finland is the first vaccine in the world to protect bees and avoiding population degradation of populations, which may cause food crisis in the world.
The bees are activated by & # 39; suggestion 90% of the main crops in the world
But in recent years these precious insects ended with "Colony collapse syndrome", bad secret. It is stated that it will bring to your mouths, pesticides, viruses or mushrooms, and even a combination of some of these factors.
According to the UN, there are more than 40% of invertebrates, especially bees and butterflies threat of extinction.
Due to severe decline, according to scientists, can create a rising food prices, and the risk of cruelty.
A vaccine, work of teamwork work University of Helsinki, to provide the necessary struggle bees to & # 39; Fighting with bigger diseases, which could be fatal to destroy communities.
"If we can save even a small part of the bees with this device, I think we'll do a good job, which will save the globe," he said. Dalial Freitak, a researcher who is managing a & # 39; the project.
"It would even have a huge increase of 2 to 3% of the population of the bees", to confirm the AFP.
He had previously believed that it was not possible to immunize antibiotics, because they have no antibodies, one of the main tools that humans and other animals have; used to fight a fight.
But in 2014, Freitak, insecticide and immunology, realized that butterflies were fed by a particular bacteria; give their protection to their ones.
Freitak and Heli Salmela, who worked on bees and protesters, faced a vaccine against American sad pants, the widest and worst of bacterial diseases of the bee.
The medicine is administered to the queen of the sugar bees, in the same way that children and children; get their anti-polio vaccine. Then his / her queen will protecting his descendants.
The team attempts to "#; vaccine in the market, but "There are many regulatory obstacles in" so wait "four to five years to get to the market the amazing estimate," according to Freitak.
A variety of reasons
Scientists believe there are diseases they are just one of the many reasons of losing pollinators. So, there is intense agriculture, which reduces the diversity of insects and poisonous.
But the Freitak team believes that the protection of infection countertops becomes stronger, and thus better equipped to do it; stand against other threats.
An European Union and Canada They voted to leave the prohibition of neonicotinoids, considered to be very harmful for the replication of bees.
According to the UN survey published in 2016, the equivalent of 507,000 million euros of food that has been growing every year depends just on pollination. The amount of food that relies on polyesters up by 300% in the last 50 years.
With the decline of policemen, some farmers have turned to attend or go to; making poles, as it is in fruit trees in some parts of China.
In Helsinki, the project is supported by external funding, but the team plans to continue its inquiry Graz University in Austria, famous scientist Karl von Frisch. He discovered a bee dancing as a means of communication and won a Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1973.
