HONEY BEE POLLINATION

What is pollination?

The process by which plant pollen is transferred from the male reproductive organ (anther) to the female reproductive organ (stigma) to form seeds.

Why are honey bees vital?
  • 130 agricultural plants are pollinated by honey bees
  • Honey bees increase crop yields by an annual value of 15+ billion dollars
  • A wide variety of wild flowers are pollinated helping to feed animals
  • Farmers must rent honey bees due to the decimation of the wild bee population and the trend towards larger farm acreages
Preparing for pollination?
  • Farmers should contact beekeepers ahead of time before the pollination season.
  • Communication and mutual agreement between beekeepers and farmers are the key to avoid any misunderstandings.
