The bee sting epidemic in the U.S. is spiraling out of control, with more than 5,000 cases reported each day.
The most recent data shows the country has reported over 3,000 bee stinging incidents and nearly 600 deaths.
This is more than double the number of bee deaths reported in 2016, according to a new report from the U,S.
Department of Agriculture.
And the problem is getting worse, according a new study from the University of Florida.
The report, “Bees, Bites: A Systematic Review of the Literature on Bee Sting Infections and Related Illness,” is part of the U.,S.
National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.
It was conducted by researchers from the School of Public Health at the University, and was published online in the journal PLOS ONE on May 1.
The researchers examined the literature on bee stinger infections and related health effects in a large cohort of adults.
It’s not known whether there are any specific treatments for bee sting or whether they are common.
The CDC and other health care organizations recommend people avoid close contact with bees or other pollinators and use neonicotinoid pesticides when possible.
The National Beekeepers Association, a trade group for beekeepers, released a statement on Wednesday saying, “It is essential that the public understand the dangers of bee stingers and the many possible side effects they have on the honeybee population.”
A report published last month by the U-M Department of Public and Environmental Health found that the honey bee population in the United States is declining by more than 70 percent since 1970.
The authors of the new report, including co-author and U-F associate professor of health sciences Dr. Michael Cimperman, said that the current rate of decline is a result of the pesticide use, the decline in flowering periods, and a general decline in the bees’ health.
“This is a huge threat to bee populations and to beekeepers because it’s a problem that’s getting worse and worse,” Cimmerman said.
The new study found that among adults, the average age of exposure to the pesticide was 25 years old.
“It’s really important that people understand the impact of bee sting infections and how to reduce them,” Cinque said.
“The more people that know about these risks and get the information about them, the more they can protect themselves.”
This is the third and final in a three-part series on the bee stung epidemic.
The next part of this series is about how the U of F and other research has shown the risk to bees is similar to the risk posed by climate change.
