Learn About How Bees Feed the World
Because bees spend their days collecting pollen, they help all flowering plans to produce fruit and seed.
Pollination is essential to a plant reproduction. Pollen from a flower's anthers (the male part of the plant) rubs or drops onto a pollinator. The pollinator then take this pollen to another flower, where the pollen sticks to the stigma (the female part). Now fertilized the plant later yields fruit and seeds.
A bees’ body attract pollen grains through electrostatic forces. Stiff hairs on their legs enable them to groom the pollen into specialized brushes or pockets on their legs or body, and then carry it from flower to flower and later back to their bee hive.
