It is a worldwide problem. It effects the economic stability of commercial beekeeping and pollinating operation in the United States which is very important to us.

IMPORTANCE OF BEES

The most important things that bees do is pollinate. Pollination is needed for plants to reproduce. Bees pollinate at least 80% of the food crops we rely on. They are responsible for every 1/3 bite of food we eat. For the meat eater, bees pollinate crops that feed the cattle such as alfafa and clover. Bees matter! Bees also produce medicinal foods such as: pollen, honey, propolis & royal jelly.
