As we all know, without honey bees as well as other bees, we as humans can not survive easily. Bees of all varieties live on nectar and pollen which they gather from flowering plants. Without bees, pollination would be difficult and time consuming - it is estimated that one-third of the human food supply depends on insect pollination.
The cameraman was able to catch some great footage of just how hard the honey bee works to gather the pollen which you can see attached to its legs just below its wings.
A very fascinating insect.

    Now I am thinking twice about the bee spray I just bought.

      Honey bees and some others are all good. Wasps are a pain. I use to deal with them when outside for a BBQ by tying a piece of meat to a string and hang it over a bowl of water with dish soap. They gorge and fall into the abyss. Never felt bad as they are not such a useful insect

        How about the big fat ones? I think they are called carpenter bees.
