Albert Einstein was obviously a fan of bees. He is supposed to have said,

“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.”

While there is some doubt that Einstein actually said this, there is little doubt that the humble bee is a vital part of the earth’s ecosystem. Honey bees collect pollen and nectar as food for the entire colony, and as they do, they pollinate plants. Nectar stored within their stomachs is passed from one worker to the next until the water within it diminishes. At this point, the nectar becomes honey, which workers store in the cells of the honeycomb.

The bees’ pollination activity is an essential part of the production of food crops of all kinds.

Celebrate the Bee

There are festivals that celebrate the bee all over the world. The Honeybee Centre in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada is just one place that shares their enthusiasm for this little insect.

“If you love fun (and we have a feeling you do) you’d be crazy to miss the excitement we offer with our free family festivals! Here at Honeybee Centre we love to go that extra mile….

…for what other festivals can you name that offer front row seats to the wildest and most extreme stunts this side of the bee yard?  (Did we mention admission is free?), check out our Honeybee Festival this summer.”

What we can learn from bees

  • Bees are pollinators vital to our food chain. One third of the food we eat would not be available but for bees.
  • Bees, like other insects, are part of a food chain.
  • The social life of the honey bee colony provides a controversial start to thinking about the structure of societies.
  • The tools which have evolved on the limbs and mouthparts of bees are neat examples of adaptation and engineering.
  • The harvest from honey bees of honey, pollen, wax and propolis has nutritional, craft, manufacturing, and medical applications.
  • Pollination by bees is important for genetic sustainability. Genes that have evolved in other animals are important to our future, too.
