When people think of bees, they usually think of annoying buzzing pests that fly into their soda can on a hot summer day. No one ever considers the positive effects that bees have on this world. Although they may sting people, their task is vital to agriculture. Bees pollinate flowers, crops, and plants. Without bees, a majority of the crops around the world would be destroyed.

Canola, responsible for fuel and cooking oil, needs bee pollination. We need pollination for cotton, if bees become extinct our clothing choice would become very limited. Due to the fact of bees pollinating the majority of crops all over the world- we would pretty much be left with bread and rice. Apples, grapes, mangos, walnuts, coffee, berries, and peppers are just a few things we lose if we lose bees. Limited food is already a huge problem is certain locations, I couldn't imagine losing any of what we already
