The effects that would proceed bees completely dying out are not fully known to scientists. What they do know is that if the bee population dwindled too much or even died out completely, it would have serious consequences. The effects of bees going extinct would cause a chain reaction in the earths delicate Eco-System. It would most likely go as follows:

Die out of plants

Die Out of the Bottom of The Food Chain

Lower food supply and diversity for humans


The first thing that would happen is plants that rely on pollination would die out, "they pollinate 70 of the around 100 crop species that feed 90% of the world. Honey bees are responsible for $30 billion a year in crops." (What Would Happen If Bees Went Extinct). Those animals at the bottom of the food chain rely on plants to sustain themselves. "That’s only the start. We may lose all the plants that bees pollinate, all of the animals that eat those plants and so on up the food chain. Which means a world without bees could struggle to sustain the global human population of 7 billion. Our supermarkets would have half the amount of fruit and vegetables." (What Would Happen If Bees Went Extinct). Without bees the world economy would be in serious danger. To put it in a practical sense, "colony collapse disorder also affects the beef and dairy industries. Bees pollinate clover, hay, and other forage crops. As they die off, it raises the cost of feedstock. That increases beef and milk prices at the grocery store." (Amadeo, Kimberly). Next time you are shopping realize that if something is not done, chances are bees may go extinct and the consequences would be brutal.
