Planning Ahead

Honey bees produce or collect a variety of products that benefit people. These products include honey, beeswax, pollen, royal jelly, and propolis. Although honey bees can be managed to produce large quantities of these products, they are especially valued for the major role they play in pollination.

While other insects and animals also are pollinators, people have had little control over the actions or numbers of these pollinators. Honey bees’ colonies, however can be placed wherever and whenever they are needed. Also, honey bees have additional advantages over other pollinators, such as their availability in large numbers and their instinctive pollen-hoarding behavior. Without the pollinating service of honey bees, the cost of many fruits, vegetables, legumes, and seeds would be many times what it is today.
