Fast Facts - Bees and Pollination - page 211

Pollination is crucial for the health and survival of natural plant communities, and is mega-important for agricultural production.

Pollination moves pollen from the male to the female part of the flower, where it fertilizers the plants ovules, allowing seed production.

The European honeybee is the most important managed pollinator, but wild bees and other insects are  often more valuable for transferring pollen. A Diversity of bees is optimal for maximum crop yield.

Honeybees and wild bees face the threats of habit loss, climate change, pesticide use and the spread of their natural enemies, so we need to manage them prudently.

We can act now to help pollinators by managing our landscape, providing nest sites, and taking care when using pesticides.

We can also propagate certain pollinator species to boost their populations.
