Honey bees are an excellent addition to any property that they are installed on. Not only do honey bees give us honey, but they are a necessary pollinator to the majority of plants in an ecosystem.
Honey and humanity have been linked much longer than one might think. An ancient cave dating back to at least 8,000 years ago in Valencia Spain depicts a human figure removing honey from a hive. On top of the many culinary uses of honey in our modern day cuisine, humans, honey bees, and honey, have been, and will always be interwoven.
Honey bees are pollinators, meaning that they pollinate flowers by transferring pollen between flowers. This is a crucial service because many plants cannot reproduce without the help of honey bees.
The USDA notes that “three-fourths of the world’s flowering plants and about 35 percent of the world’s food crops depend on animal pollinators to reproduce.” This demonstrates the importance of pollination in global food systems.
