Learn About Bees

The relationship between honeybees and flowers is remarkable.  While we often think of honey as the gift that bees give, the true gift is pollination.

Flowers depend on bees to produce fruit and seeds. To attract bees, flowers produce sweet nectar that bees use to make honey.  While visiting flowers, bees also collect pollen which gets sprinkled from one flower to the next, pollinating the flowers.
