Honeybees are highly evolved insects and have been buzzing around this planet for over 100 million years?
Seventy of the one hundred crop species that provide ninety percent of food worldwide, are pollinated by bees?
250 million flowering plants depend on Honeybees and other pollinating insects to reproduce and create healthy, higher yielding offspring?
Pollination services provided by bees are critical for both ecosystem function and crop production and are estimated to be worth between £430 million and £603 million a year to the UK agricultural industry (based on 2017 figures)?
Raw hive products produced by honeybees such as beeswax, honey, propolis, bee venom and Royal Jelly are used in cosmetics, natural health foods and products, medicine, pharmaceutical preparations, manufacturing and industry?
But did you also know that since 1970, bees have been rapidly declining in numbers? Various factors are responsible for the downward freefall of the bee and insect populations and if this is not addressed and reversed soon, ultimately our ecosystem and quality of life on this planet will be compromised.
Through education, training and management services, Bee responsible… supports individuals, families, businesses and communities who choose to invest in Honeybees, their local environment, biodiversity and the future.
