These insects are crucial in pollinating different wild flowers and agricultural plants. Moreover, bees produce unique natural products such as honey, propolis and beeswax. Without bees, we would have less fruit and vegetables; thus less food for humans and animals. Bees need to be protected from harmful pesticides.
