Importance of honey bee for human and nature

importance of honeybee in history

A honeybee is no ordinary insect, but rather than the extraordinary insect! Honeybees are amazing creatures! A honeybee is one of the most fascinating and marvelous insects whom usefulness is known to mankind since prehistoric times.

Honey harvesting dates back to 7000 B.C. and is perhaps the only industry which besides the production of sweet honey, beeswax, pollen and bee venom and also helps in increased crop production through pollination of crop, continuation, and propagation of many plants growing in nature thereby maintaining the stability of ecosystem, environmental quality and biodiversity.

In broad terms, it is their ability to pollinate plants that make them so important.

They also play an often unrecognized role in maintaining vegetation cover: more pollination means more seeds, more young plants, and eventually more biomass, providing food and habitats for birds, insects, and other animals.

Honeybees are important for agricultural well-being; they represent the natural biological interdependence that comes from insects, pollination, and production of seeds.

Some sources suggest that one-third of the food that we consume each day relies on pollination mainly done by honey bees and also by other insects, birds, and bats.

Albert Einstein estimated that if all the bees were destroyed, man would follow in four years.
