The tireless work of bees is one of the main reasons for the possibility of human development on earth. Without them, our planet would be a lot different and the conditions for human development may not have existed. You can save these helpful pollinators by creating a bee-friendly space in your garden.
Bees are the reason flowering plants are able to pollinate and reproduce. Honeybees pollinate plants that produce about a quarter of the food consumed by Americans. If it weren’t for bees, the plants that we get a lot of our food from would not be able to reproduce and therefore quickly die out. Leaving us with very few options. Over recent years, bees have been dying at a rate the U.S. government says is economically unsustainable.
