Many of the foods we enjoy everyday will not produce ‘fruit’ unless the flowers are pollinated by honeybees. Without the faithful work of the humble bee, we would not have apples, pears, plums and raspberries. We would have no zucchini, sunflowers, and many other vegetables. The sweet delicious honey enjoyed by so many people is the result of thousands of flights by thousands of tireless honeybees to thousands of flower blossoms. From those blossoms, the honeybees bring drops of nectar back to the hive. They are deposited in the honeycombs and evaporated into honey by the rapid wing movements of other bees. The hardworking honeybee is so productive that there is usually more honey in a hive than is needed for the survival of the colony. The excess honey is harvested for human use.
