Why are bees important for the environment?

Bees are pollinators and they are a key component for the ecosystem. These small creatures are essential for most ecosystems due to the fact that they fertilize flowers. Pollination is used to help plants grow and prosper in health and for breeding. They carry pollen from male flowers to female flowers, which allows for new flowers to grow. This is a continuous process.

30% of the world’s crops and at least 90% of plants need cross pollination. For example, bees are important pollinators in Canada. Plants need to germinate in order to grow, but they need pollen to do that. Bees pollinate billions of plants every year, including some that are in agriculture. Pollination helps the plants grow or else the plants will die off and farmers can not plant on top of those dead plants.

Bees create honey, and it is not only for humans to eat. The birds, insects, and other animals also eat honey because it tastes sweet. Bees also help in the food chain, and it is a prey to many insects such as dragonflies and praying mantises. The hives of bees are used as shelter for them. They can also be a good source of food for predators, but can also be deadly since there are so many of them.
