Healthy bee populations are essential to the production of food. Floral nectars and aromas attract bees and thus ensure adequate pollination and the reproductive success of the plant. The honey bee's most significant contribution to human dietary habits has been these pollination activities. Without honey bees human tables and lives would be impoverished by a general lack of fruits, vegetables, flowers, and other bee-pollinated plant products.* Bees pollinate some of our favorite foods: Apples, oranges, lemons, broccoli, onions, blueberries, cherries, avocados and much more.
