The planet needs bees!

and you can help.

A large proportion of what we eat relies on honey bees. An estimated 87% of flowering plants, are reliant on pollinators, and around 75% of those are crops. The commercial production of more than 90 crops relies on about 3,600 bee species, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

3 reasons why honey bees are awesome!

  • Reason #1

    Efficient and strong – they forage from an estimated two million flowers to make one pound of honey! Plus, bees can carry the equivalent of their own body weight in nectar or pollen loads.

  • Reason #2

    They are brilliant. The architecture of a hexagon (of which they build their combs) is perfect for the least amount of wax used - while also allowing the most space and strength.

  • Reason #3

    They are dancers! That is how bees talk to each other - through dance. Their dances tell the other bees were to find food, the quality of the food source, and the direction and distance.
