It is estimated that one third of human food is derived from insect-pollinated plants; honey bees are responsible for 80% of this pollination, but the honey bee population is declining at an alarming rate. This exhibit examines the important business of bees and the history of beekeeping.
Exhibit produced by Anita Ezzo and Sheila Bryant. Special thanks to Dr. Gary Parsons and Dr. Walter Pett, MSU Dept. of Entomology, for loan of bee specimens and beekeeping equipment and Dadant & Sons for photo prints.
