Important for more than just honey.

Bees are the most important domesticated animal on the planet

One third of everything that people eat exists because a bee pollinated the flower.

Pollinators play a significant role in the production of over 150 food crops in the North America ‚ among them apples, alfalfa, almonds, blueberries, cranberries, kiwi fruit, melons, pears, plums, raspberries and squash.

In the North America, the increased yield and quality of agricultural crops as a result of honey bee pollination is valued at more than $14.6 billion per year.

Without the honey bees pollination work, the quantity and quality of many crops would be reduced and some would not yield at all.

Honeybees are the major pollinator of plants in the world

It has been estimated that 80 percent of insect crop pollination is accomplished by honey bees. While other insects can pollinate plants, honey bees are premier pollinators because they are available throughout the growing season, they pollinate a wide range of crops and they can be concentrated whenever and wherever they are needed.
