With spring arrival, we can expect our beloved honeybee leaving their winter abode to greet us wholeheartedly. Just like Pooh Bear, I too love honey. But as a MG, I love the honeybee more for its role in pollination of fruits and vegetables.
I learned that some crops such as blueberries and cherries are 90 percent dependent on honey bee pollination. And if you like almonds, they depend entirely on the honeybee for pollination. (Source: American Bee Keeper Association)
Honeybees are beneficial insects. Therefore, keep them in mind when you are using pesticides. Some pesticides do not discriminate and will hurt all life forms.
