Why bees are important to us all.
The buzzing of the bees brings life to our gardens, their honey sweetens our life, their poison is used in medicine against inflammation, candles made out of bees wax bring light to dark evenings and propolis is good for our immune systems.
These tiny animals are invaluable to us humans. With their sheer hard work, they achieve amazing things and are one of the most important working animals worldwide. Their most important task is to pollinate plants. Without this free service from the bees, we would have to do without about a third of our foodstuffs.
The honeybee is an essential pillar of our ecosystem. More than 80% of native flowering plants depend on pollination. Without this cross-pollination, many plants would be unable to produce fruit and seeds. Our entire countryside, our diet, and the continuation of many plant and animal species would be threatened.
