Bees are some of the hardest working creatures on the planet, and because of their hard work ethic, we owe them many thanks to this amazing yet often 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!
If bees did not exist, there would no longer be broccoli, asparagus, cantaloupes, cucumbers, pumpkins, blueberries, watermelons, almonds, apples, cranberries, and cherries. Imagine that!! These humble, buzzing bugs deserve a huge thanks! – for helping provide us with our favorite fruits and vegetables, their delicious honey, and beautiful flowery gardens.
