Honeybees perform more than 85% of pollination of many of our cultivated crops


More than 100 important crops are pollinated by honeybees. This includes many of the fruits and vegetables that we eat, but also several important crops such as nuts, herbs, spices oilseed crops, forage for dairy and beef cattle, as well as medicinal and numerous ornamental plants. Even plants that are not grown for their fruits require pollination to propagate them by seed. Which means no dairy products and fruits, that is why bees play such an important role in our lives.

The plant gets its energy from the sun and grows from the water and gets its nutrition from the soil this is known as the producers which can also be defined as the abiotic components. Then the bees get pollen from these plants and goes to other plants pollinating many plants and seeds, the bees play the role of the primary consumers. The bees are consumed by many such as the bear, skunk, and raccoon these can be known as the consumers. Consumers get their energy from the plants or other animals. Then this energy is transferred to the next predators which includes cougar also known by many other names such as mountain lion, the cougars are consumed by wolves, which then is passed on to the grizzly bear. This part of the food web is known as the secondary consumers the secondary consumers get their energy from the consumers.
