Many people fear bees because of the painful sting they give when they feel threatened. For the most part, bees themselves are pretty docile creatures. They don’t usually sting you unless they feel they need to. Bees should never be killed for no reason. They play a key role in our ecosystem, and we would cease to exist if they didn’t exist. A-Tex Pest Management is here to talk about the role bees play in our environment, and why safe removal is important.
Bees Pollinate Our World
The beautiful flowers and plants that color and beautify our world would simply not exist if it weren’t for bees. Their bodies have been designed specifically to gather pollen and help pollinate plants. The fuzzy hairs that line their abdomen and legs allow pollen to stick to them and easily get carried from flower to flower. Bees usually don’t travel from one type of flower to the other, but rather, spend their time working in one area which allows the pollen from the male part of the flower to female part of the flower and the nut, seed or flower is then produced.
Bees & Honey Production
Bees pollinate our flowers and plants, but they also produce honey. Think about it, without honey our own food supply would suffer. This painstaking task that bees perform to produce honey, enriches our food and is one of the healthiest forms of sweetener you can use. Not only does it sweeten your food, but honey has been proven to help with seasonal allergies and has several natural antibiotic properties to it.
Our Food Sources Depend on Bees
Not only do flowers depend on bees for survival, but the plants and trees that produce our fruit and vegetables do as well. Beyond that, the meat that we consume relies on the plants pollinated by bees for survival. Our entire food source requires bees to play their part in pollination.
Benefits of Beeswax
Beeswax is used for a wide variety of things in our world like cosmetics, candles, lip balm and other pharmaceuticals. Much like honey, beeswax has been proven to provide many medical benefits as well. It has been said to help with anti-inflammatory properties as well as anti-oxidant properties.

Because bees play such an important role in our ecosystem, it is important that they are treated with care. If a beehive isn’t bothering anyone, it should be left alone.
