Bees are the flying insects you see in summer, usually traveling from flower to flower collecting nectar to create their precious bee honey. Although closely related to wasps, they’re the kinder and more useful variety of yellow striped insect. Where wasps will try and sting a human on sight, a bee is more bothered about nectar and less about aggression.
Honey bees are super-important not only for the surrounding environment, but also the world economies. As humans, we rely on bees and the wide range of insects to pollinate nearly all of our food, including vegetables and fruit. If our bees did not pollinate our crops, farmers would have to use chemicals and non-organic ways to produce food.
During 2017 and 2018 there were many different types of bee added to the endangered species list. There are around 30% of species endangered in Europe. This is concerning to all of us as humans and we need to take positive action to curb this decline.
