To explain a bees life it would be necessary a deep understanding of their necessity. It is believed that the honey bee was also originated in Africa, like first human beings, and later spread across northern Europe, India, and China.
The honey-bee relationship with humans can be traced back to the dawn of humankind when early people ‘stole’ honey from wild bee nests. Bees and flowering plants evolved with each other. This evolutionary symbiotic relationship is the most important reason why our world looks like it does today… and still, the vital work of bees goes on.
As people growth rate rises on Earth, the bees population is in decline and everybody is trying to prevent this situation that is evolving on a devastating path for humankind. If we take into consideration some appreciation about bees impact on the earth, on our lives, it can be said that:
“If the bee disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years left to live”. (Maurice Maeterlinck – The Life of the Bee, 1901)
“Remove the bee from the earth, and at the same stroke you remove at least one hundred thousand plants that will not survive.” (Albert Einstein)
