Honey Bees and Us

What did the Honey Bees ever do for us? This short video offers food for thought (if you will pardon the pun) as it explains why we should be concerned about their declining numbers.

One in every three of the meals that we eat is made possible by honey bees, who pollinate the plants that end up on our tables, either directly or through being fed to animal livestock. Consequently, honey bees are an important link in the process by which the food chain is replenished and restored.

As honey bees go, so goes our nations, it would appear.
