We all know that bees make honey, but they do much more for the food we eat. Bees and other insects, including wasps and hoverflies, pollinate plants. By transferring pollen from the male parts of flowers to the female parts, they’re a vital part of the process that eventually leads to fruit, nut and seed production. For some crops, such as melons, no pollinators means no fruit. For others, no pollinators means a lesser harvest. This widespread role of insects in food production is reflected in insect pollinators’ economic value – estimated to be around £130bn globally in 2005.
