The estimated value of crops lost if bees were no longer able to pollinate fruits and vegetables is around $15 billion. Share this post if you want to raise awareness to save the bees!

In the 1950′s, the honeybee population numbered 5 million strong, while today despite the advent of improved farming methods and technology, the bee population has dwindled to 2.5 million. A significant loss considering that one out of every three bites of food has been pollinated by a honeybee. What has brought us to this point? And more importantly, what can we do about it?
