Bees and Honey 2018-03-31T16:26:13+00:00

BEES ARE ARGUABLY THE MOST INVALUABLE SPECIES TO LIFE ON EARTH!

Bees play one of the most important roles in human society, more than we know. If you’ve ever enjoyed most fruit, vegetables and other crops you should generally thank the bees.

Pollination

HONEY BEES PLAY A CRITICAL ROLE IN AGRICULTURE

The most important role honey bees play is actually not honey production, but pollination. There is also a trend to consume more bee-pollinated crops (such as fruits and vegetables), making honey bees more and more important in agriculture.

Bees are directly linked to one in every three bites we eat. Hundreds of essential food sources in the world have the bees to thank for their pollination. Stop and think for a moment about all the flowering plants that require bees for pollination. The list of foods we eat alone is almost too many to list here but these include, Almonds, Apples, Blueberries, Watermelons, Cherries, Onions, Beets, Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Various Chili Peppers, Tangerine, Coconuts, Hazelnuts, Cucumber, Lemons, Limes, Carrots, Strawberries, Cotton, Walnuts, Sunflowers, Various Beans, Apricots, Plums, Pomegranates, Pears, Black Berries, Sesame, Eggplant, Cocoa, Cranberries, Vanilla, Tomato, and Grapes.

Production

WHAT BEES PRODUCE DIRECTLY

Honey bees also produce honey and beeswax, which are highly valued worldwide.  Besides that bees also produce pollen, propolis, royal jelly, and bee venom that are playing increasing roles in health food and alternative medicine.  Bee stings are routinely used for the treatment of arthritis, multiple sclerosis and other auto-immune diseases.
