Bees and Wasps




Bees are flying insects closely related to wasps and ants.Of all insect species,the honey bee is perhaps the most beneficial.
 
The honey bee makes its greatest contribution by pollinating plants.
 
More than one half of all fruit and vegetable crops are pollinated by honey bees.Wasps contribute by preying on many pest insects harmful to crops.Unfortunately,bees and wasps can be a threat to human health.Most die from an allergic reaction to venom within one hour of the sting.Those allergic to stings should carry emergency epinephrine injection kits as directed by their doctors.
