According to the USDA, honey bee pollination alone adds more than $15 billion in value to agricultural crops each year in the United States.
If bees were to disappear, many foods would also disappear including onions, tomatoes, apples, cranberries, grapes, peaches and nectarines, pears, bell peppers, kiwi, blueberries, strawberries, chili peppers, watermelon and many, many more!... a world without bees would certainly sting!
Many plants that we commonly see around homes promote honey bee health. Brighten your home or yard with beautiful flowers each year with bee-friendly flowers. Bee friendly home gardens are also great support for native honey bees. For a list of plants that bees love and we can eat, see nrdc.org
