Transcript of Bee Pollination Process

Bee Pollination Process
Whats The Buzz About Bees?

STEP 1: A little honey bee is attracted to a certain flower, and seeks nectar from that flower. The bee lands, and starts the process. If the flower has pesticides on it, once the bee steps on it she dies. This is a huge conflict for our environment, wax supply, and honey supply.
STEP 2: While gathering the flower's nectar from the nectaries the honeybee brushes against the anthers.
STEP 3: The pollen on the flower's anther gets stuck on the bee's hairy body. They bring this honey back to the hive, and that's what they eat, and the beekeepers collect.
STEP 4: The bee has successfully taken the pollen from that flower! The bee now moves to a new flower, on another plant. Good work, Little Honey Bee!
STEP 5: As the bee collects nectar some of the pollen from the other plant is rubbed onto the stigma of the new plant! Now this plant will reproduce! This a huge job that bees do, one by one, little by little.
stigma
STEP 6: The pollen on the stigma of the flower grows a tube that travels to the ovule, and fertilization takes place.
STEP 7: The fertilized ovule develops into seed that will soon be a beautiful flower! This happens to be the last step of the pollination process. Do you see how 1 bee makes a huge difference? Imagine what 1 bee does, and never underestimate bees again!!! Got it?
Now that you have heard about what bees have done, can you imagine our life without bees? We wouldn't have any crops flowers, trees, bushes, etc. They wouldn't be able to reproduce without pollination. Continued next slot
CONTINUED: All of the crops would wither and die. Bees do a big job, and frankly I think that they are unappreciated. Also our honey ,and wax supply would decrease rapidly, and greatly. Bees are a huge part of our environment, and without them our lives wouldn't be as colorful or enjoyable. WE NEED BEES!!!!
FUN FACTS
*The honey bee has been around for 30 million years
*Honeybee's wing stroke is 11,400 times a minute.
* The honeybee is the only insect who makes food for man kind.
