Bees play a vital role in pollination of crops, it’s important to improve diversity of bee populations and ensure there are enough of them to withstand any future threats. Besides pollination, bees provide us with wonderful natural honey too and for many people this is their main reason for keeping bees.

Bees occur all over the world and honey has been farmed from bees for thousands of years. To most people, a bee is thought of as something that lives in a hive, produces honey and can sting you. In reality this only describes some bees; many people also confuse bees with other insects such as wasps and hornets.
