When you see a bee you may have the urge to swat at it or even spray it with a chemical such as Raid. We understand how this can be tempting, especially since bees sting. However, bees are a vital part of the environment and should be protected at all costs. It wasn’t until recently that more and more people begin learning about the importance of bees, but for those who have not, this is for you. Bees quite literally keep our food supply intact, specifically the healthier foods we purchase such as fruits and vegetables. You may be wondering how they do this, and the answer is pollination. Something we all know bees do. But not knowing the extent of how pollination is important has severely harmed the bee population. And it’s up to all of us to educate ourselves and properly preserve bees.
How Does Pollination Help the Environment?
If you are someone who eats fruits and vegetables, enjoys coffee, and wears cotton, then it is in your best interest to help save the bees. Something all of these items have in common is that they come from plants. Plants that bees pollinate. Without this pollination plants and crops would not exist in the large quantities they do now. This means an overall less nutritious diet, potential vitamin deficiencies, and even a more expensive grocery bill. While other insects help out with pollination, none are as effective and productive as bees are. The bees bounce around from plant to plant more frequently and have long tongues that can reach most kinds of plants. To put it simply, bees are genetically the best fit for the pollination job.
Why are the Bees in Danger?
You may not exterminate bees or even see anyone else doing so. This leads to the common question of why are the bees in danger and how this happened. For starters, bees have commonly been seen as a dangerous pest due to their stingers. This has been a big reason as to why many people react to bees with fear and aggression. However, with saving the bees getting more traction and more education being thrown around, people have been more cautious with how they approach these insects. But, loss of habitat is still a major threat to bees. Which is why we sometimes see them choosing to make our homes their nesting site. Our team helps with this by safely relocating the bees away from your home to a habitat that is more suitable for them.
What to Do When There’s a Bee Infestation?
While bee infestations do not happen frequently, they still occur from time to time. You may even be experiencing this problem yourself.
