“It’s been stated that every third bite of food you take is thanks directly or indirectly to a honey bee,” said beekeeper Orin Johnson. The beekeeper is exactly right. Approximately 70 percent of all the food we eat was pollinated by honeybees. Feed devoured by the livestock we eat is also pollinated by bees. Keeping the junior high science lesson super short- if the bees die, the human race will not be far behind.
Honeybees in the California Central Valley always pollinate the fruit and almond trees which provide produce and nuts shipped around the world. The state literally requires billions of honeybees to generate a healthy and solid crop each year.
