Bees are flower feeding insects. They have four wings, hairy bodies and stingers on the ends of their abdomens. Bees need nectar from flowers to survive. We need bees to pollinate flowers for food production.
Pollination
Bees collect pollen and nectar from flowers. Pollen in used as a protein. and nectar is used for energy. A bee travels from one flower to another, transferring the pollen that sticks to the hair on their bodies in the process. This fertilizes the plant.
Bee Suvivial
Bees cannot survive without flowers. They need the nectar in from the flower to provides them with fats, protein, vitamins and minerals. Bees collect nectar in a sack in their stomachs, then travel back to their hives and use the nectar to make honey.
Our Food Source Survival
We depend on bees to fertilize our food-producing plant. Without bees transferring pollen from one flower to another to fertilize it, crops and plants will not become fertilized and bear fruit. Some of the fruits and vegetables that rely on pollination include watermelon, apples, pears, strawberries, almonds, corn, cucumbers and tomatoes.
