The European Honey is the most common type of bee.

There are more than 800 species of bees in the world, and seven species are now under the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as critically endangered, says “The Conversation”.
Bees are unlikely to go extinct in the next few years, if the bee population continues to decline.

“The bee population has “plummeted by 87 percent” after a decline in the 1990s.” the FWS told News.

The biggest things affecting the bee population”The Conversation”states are…
Invasive Species-pathogens\; a bacterium, virus, or other microorganism that can cause disease, having been causing a downfall in the bee population. The Asian Hornet, which is located in Europe has been killing bee hives.
Habitat Destruction-The growing economy has proven to be somewhat negative to the bees since many of their habitats are destroyed in the processes.
Climate Change-Warm climate has also become a problem with Global Warming, bees have had to relocate to colder climates.
Pesticides-Chemicals that farmers keep their crops have been conterpting to the downfall, many bees find the chemicals harmful to their systems.
