What's Killing All the Bees?!

WRITTEN BY: Akshay Masand

Often getting a bad rap for their pesky little stingers, bees play a vital role in agricultural production and pollination. However, the population of more than 700 bee species in North American is declining due to a loss of habitat and the use of pesticides. 

Just how valuable are these bees? If you were going to put a price on it, honey bees in the US would affect about $15 billion each year, doing about 80% of the pollination of our crops. 

The team at Sun Leisure put together this infographic to show the dramatic effect the loss of bees has, and will have, on all of us. And we’re not just talking about honey. With honey month right around the corner, take a look and see what we can do to help these little pollinating machines.
