There is an ongoing struggle between man and nature. Society has taken over the earth killing millions of insects each year. The result of this is a depleted ozone layer, food shortages and a medical problem we are only beginning to recognize. Honey bees, in fact, are our most important pollinators. Man has not been able to coexist with these insects because of his cruelty and ignorance.

Nature has a way of providing for the honey bees by providing for their survival. In return, the environment is provided with food, fuel, shelter and clothing. There is a delicate balance that exists between the two, but humans have upset it by destroying and exterminating the honey bees. It may seem that way, but it is very important to know the honey bee’s importance to the environment. By understanding how they are vital to the world and how we impact their survival, we can work toward working out a better balance so both our health and the environment are better off.
