Honey bees are some of the hardest working creatures in the animal kingdom. Worker bees labor tirelessly day in and day out their whole lives, and by the end each one only produces a fraction of a tablespoon of honey!
Did you know that honey bees pollinate more than 85% of the world’s crops, including fruits, vegetables, nuts, cocoa beans, coffee, and tea? When it comes to agriculture, honey bees are arguably the planet’s most important animal! Sadly, because of human interference, honey bees the world over are disappearing. Researchers aren’t exactly sure why, but many factors are possible, including pesticides, cell tower signals, poor nutrition, and the rise of varroa mites.
