Often taken for granted, bees provide an essential service to an ecosystem; pollinating flowers of pollinate 70 of the primary 100 crop species that feed 90% of the world. Without bees, the plants that bees pollinate will die out, as will the animals which feed one them, leading to the collapse of many food webs.
To help, you can reduce the amount of pesticides you use around the house and plant some flowering plants to attract bees to your garden. The wildlife in your area will thank you 😊
