The magic of bees

Without bees, how would we get our food? Pollination is one of the most important things that bees do. Pollination is the transfer of pollen from the anther (male part) of a flower to the stigma (female part) of a flower. The transfer of pollen results in fertilization and the formation of seeds. The seeds stimulate growth of the surrounding ovarian tissue or the flesh of the fruit. Flowers with higher levels of fertilization produce more seeds and thus bigger fruit.

 

Fruit crops especially need insect pollinators for pollination (e.g. cherries, guava, passion fruit, jamun and pomegranates. We actually need bees and other insects in our garden when those blooms appear so that we can reap some fruit.  Proper pollination can increase fruit size, yield, cause fruit to ripen quicker and improve the shape of the fruit. In plants that are not self-pollinating, pollination is done by wind or animals, mainly bees. So now do you see how important bees are?
