Bees evolved from carnivorous wasps over 100 million years ago along with the appearance of flowering plants. Since that time, bees have become the primary pollinators of the plant kingdom.
Currently bees are challenged. Colony Collapse from habitat loss, deadly disease, pesticides, commercial beekeeping, and other interventions by man threaten not only the bees, but also humans and animals that eat fruits, vegetables, nuts and flowers.
