♔Bumblebee- Species | Britain

The next time you see a bee buzzing around, remember…

A a third of our food crops are pollinated by bees and other insects. Up to 90% of all wild plants exist thanks to bees and other pollinating insects. The economic value of pollination services globally provided by bees amount to some €265bn.

Bee-decline is a global problem.

In recent winters, in Europe alone, bee losses up to 53% became a reality. This dramatic decline in bee populations is the result of multiple factors such as diseases and parasites, climate change and wider industrial agricultural practices. Monocultures and the extensive use of deadly pesticides are of special concern. Some pesticides are real bee-killers.
