Five Reasons We Need Bees

  • Over 80% of the food crops have been pollinated by bees.
  • Bees also pollinate cotton crops used to make our clothes
  • Propolis, the resin bees collect from trees, has naturally occurring antibiotic, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • The substance secreted by bees to feed potential new queens is called Royal Jelly and has been found to boost the immune system and help fight various medical conditions.
  • Honey is a great skin healer and is used in many skin care products.
