Apiculture (beekeeping) is wonderful for our environment. Bees are pollinators, which means that they help plants, flowers, trees, and pollinating vegetation to reproduce and thrive. This makes bees a vital piece of our ecosystem. Bees are also essential to the human race; without them, our food supply decrease rapidly. They play such a big role in our planet and the survival of much of the vegetation.
Unfortunately many factors like environmental changes and pesticides have knocked the bee populations to a dangerous low. Keeping bees is not only fun and rewarding, it provides you a deep connection to Mother Earth and the health of our planet.
