Each bee visits up to 100 flowers on a foraging trip, and as they pollinate 170,000 plant species, they are considered the largest pollinators in the world. 80 % of fruit and vegetables need bees to produce honey. A third of the foods that we eat are dependent on pollination. Bees require fresh water in a garden, and they play an important role in the environmental health. . Honey is the only food made by insects and eaten by insects, animals and man. Bees are responsible for the 265 billion euros industry worldwide and it's for this reason that the bee keepers want to have them declared as an endangered specie.
