The Honey Bee

Consider that every third bite of food is the result of pollination by bees.



Honeybees have provided us with honey and beeswax and other hive products.

Commercial uses have produced a large beekeeping industry, but many species still occur in the wild.




Why are Honey Bees and Beekeeping Important?

Let's Break It Down To Basics


Bees are responsible for one out of every three bites of food you eat, according to the National Research Council (NRC) of the National Academy of Sciences.

This means that bees pollinate one-third of all the food we eat!


If you let the fact above sink in a bit, it's mind boggling!

Without bees, we wouldn't be able to bite into those big juicy ruby red strawberries in early summer, or get some strawberry shortcake at the county fair!

We wouldn't have onion rings, chili powder to make chili, cashew nuts, watermelon, cherries, avocados, or mustard to spread on our hotdog!

We wouldn't even have black-eyed peas and cabbage eat on New Year's Day for good luck and riches!

Bottom line, our menu would be rather boring without bees.

Honey bees quite literally feed the world, not just with their delicious honey, but with all the many crops they pollinate.

Given all they give us, don't we owe it to them to them to figure out why and help them recover?

Don't we owe it to ourselves to protect these food allies?


How Beekeeping Helps Native Bees That Aren't Part of the Colony

Beekeeping is a hobby (or profession) that helps to keep our honey bee populations growing.

Some critics suggest that beekeepers only keep certain species of bee populations growing.

However, this isn't true. Think about it.

When the honey bees that beekeepers raise go out and pollinate all the flowers in the neighborhood, they are doing a good service to the native bee species too.

Why is this true?

It's because pollinating the flowers of all the different plants helps these plants thrive and grow even more flowers next season not only for the honey bees beekeepers raise but also for all their native cousins as well.
