Some anhropozanic activities are deforestation, urbanization, more consumption of pesticides and increase in atmospheric electromagnetic radiation. The increased radiation given by more uses of cell phones, which are may be create interfere in navigation ability of the Honeybees. A variety of troubles threaten the pollinators: Endless waves of development destroy nesting and feeding grounds; pesticides decimate them along with other beneficial insects. In recent years honeybee populations across the continent have dropped by as much as 70 percent, and biologists are still scratching their heads as to why and what to do about the problem which they have termed “colony collapse disorder.
