The gardeners little helper
Beekeeping offers a lot of great rewards, They will cross pollinate all your fruits and vegetables, not to mention all that honey. Wow doesn't that make your sweet tooth holler for more.Lets not for get about beeswax and all its uses. Honey was our earliest sweet until Alexander the great brought sugar cane back from an Asiatic exploration.The beeswax has many uses also including your complexion, the face creams of today has its base, the nectar of the flowers transformed by the bees themselves into the beeswax. This is the substance of there own homes, the combs, are built. But none of this equals the bees greatest contribution, and that's cross pollination.The honey bee goes from flower to flower sipping the nectar from the cucumber or the water million,she simultaneously gathers on the hairs of her body and legs a bit of dust like material called pollen.most of the pollen is used to mix with nectar to make food for the baby's.but not all of it . when the bee fly's from one bloom to another, it leaves a bit of pollen on each one as she goes about her daily business she aids in perpetuation of all those beautiful flowers and garden plants that we enjoy through out our lives.
Some plants are self-pollinating,some are wind pollinated,but most of the vegetables, fruits, and legumes, has to be pollinated with insect carried cross-pollination, to be sure there is a sufficient quantity of vegetables, or fruit, and get a satisfactory quality.Do to all the insectasides and poisons sprays used on our crops in such large scale, it has caused an immense destruction, of beneficial as well as harmful insects. This makes the honey bees job our best hope for future pollination:If we are going to have adequate cross-pollination, to secure good crops, and ample plump seed and fruit, These little gardeners helpers will be largely responsible.
