Drought in Mexico is not only hurting producers but also for the bee population

The ongoing drought in Mexico could soon hurt the local bee population.

The North American Drought Monitor shows producers in anywhere from abnormal to exceptionally dry levels. It is estimated that more than 60 million people in Mexico are dealing with impacts. The drought is leading to a lack of vegetation, which bees thrive on.

Farmers fear the loss of pollinators will threaten their livelihoods.
One farmer told Reuters that without bees, there would be no type of food production, from the smallest grass to the gigantic watermelons.

Scientists are also warning of declining bee populations in other parts of the world.
