• Bees are some of the hardest working creatures on the planet. Because of their hard work ethic, we owe many thanks to this under appreciated insect.

    Bees are responsible for:

    •  Pollinating about one-sixth of the flowering plant species worldwide and approximately 400 different agricultural types of plants.
    • They provide us with approximately $19 billion worth of agricultural crops in the U.S. that’s estimated to be one-third of everything we eat!

    Without bees, we wouldn’t have broccoli, asparagus, cantaloupes, cucumbers, pumpkins, blueberries, watermelons, almonds, apples, cranberries, or cherries. Imagine that!

    Bees provide us with our favorite fruits and vegetables, delicious honey, and beautiful gardens. These humble, buzzing bugs deserve a huge thanks!
