MaterialA. The honeybee.1. Tiny animal making big headlines.2. The
honeybee population has taken a major hit and has worried lots of
people.B. Honeybees are essential to our food supply.1. Honeybees
pollinate nearly 100 of our most important crops like fruits,
vegetables, nuts, seeds, and fibers (cotton).2. The value of the
honeybee service in the U.S. is greater than 15 billion dollars.II.
Orienting MaterialA. Honeybees are quickly disappearing.B.
Scientist and beekeepers are in a race against time to solve this
urgent mystery.C. However, we feel that more can be done to help
the honeybees survive with the aid from all citizens, not just
scientists and beekeepers.D. Our information comes from A Spring

History of bees.A. Bees evolved with flowers about 130 million years ago forming a perfect partnership. 1. The secretion of sugary nectar led a species of wasp to evolve into a tiny bee, only 3 millimeters long called Melittosphex burmensis.2. Melittosphex burmensis is the oldest-known bee species, whose story began some 100 million years ago in a Myanmar amber mine located in Southeast Asia.B. The main honeybee species Apis mellifera L., evolved nearly 60 million years ago. (Transition: The effect of honeybees on the show more content
A world without bees.A. No crops for anyone to feed off.B. Unemployment- Farmers and beekeepers would have no jobs because their livelihoods were dependent on bees.C. Since there are no bees to pollinate crops, humans might have to start a task known as hand pollination.1. Southern Sichuan province located in the rural county of Hanyuan has already started hand pollination with pears.2. Hand pollination is an expensive and intense process for humans, a duty once fulfilled by bees for free.3. Hand pollination in the U.S. would cost more than 90 billion dollars a year.4. Hand pollination is predicted to become very difficult.5. Hanyuan shows a glimpse of what life would be like without honeybees, which reminds everyone how irreplaceable these bees are.D. If the bee population continues to decline at this rate bees will be extinct in the U.S. by 2035.(Transition: Lets summarize.)CONCLUSIONI. SummaryA. Bees play a vital role in the world.B. Bees are dying off and there are many factors to why this disappearance is happening.C. A world without bees is a dark, scary world.II. ClincherA. As a human race we cannot take this issue lightly, we must act now before its too
