You wouldn't say that if all the bees were gone.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dying_Star

You should not be saying that all. Bees are good, even when they sting you. ;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/esperanto1887

I think you both are against the sentence, each in his own words. I too think it is as inappropriate


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/clh335763

Why would that be inappropriate? Biodiversity only benefits us and bees are important pollinators. And many of us love bees :):) Couldn't they have given us "nyuki ni mdudu mzuri" or something?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vtopphol

Are you all agreeing with me or disagreeing? This just seems like a chain of misunderstandings.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MfonUdoiny

Exactly! Or they could've just said, "Bees sting" which would be factual but neutral at the same time.

bees are actually good bugs

Ikiwa nyuki akafa, tunakufa


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AbbyCordes

As a beekeeper, this one hurt my soul.

Nyuki ni wadudu mzuri sana.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dieprinzessin

Asali yao ni mzuri. Nyuki ni wadudu manufaa.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Els288789

Duo please change this sentence. Bees are very necessary and good insects


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Renata725212

Asali ni dawa na nyuki ni mpole.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jimothey

Bees are good! They are so important for life, and also so cute!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/frank856835

bees are good insects


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BB8eZ2Cd

why not use cockroaches are bad insects?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hashi97

Bees give us sweet honey. They aren't bad.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Athena_Drakerav

Nyuki ni wadudu wazuri!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MfonUdoiny

You must be kidding, right? I mean, have you heard of something really realy awesome called "honey"? And do you know about pollination by bees?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HenningAll1

Bees are good insects. No plant life without them. This sentence is just plain wrong and should be changed.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/andi448928

Without bees mankind could not survive!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/frank856835

really, bugs are neither bad or good. they're necessary


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DavidJevin

Kufikiri nyuki ni wadudu wabaya kumaanisha unajua siyo kitu.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sikubali1

I already requested on twitter you stopp this nonsense. We are facing mass extinction of insects we may not like but that are extremely important for us. I'd be happy to discuss


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anthony101199

Every creature is crucial to the environment in its own way.
