Pollination is the key to maintaining vegetation on the planet. Bees are our major pollinators which is why they are so important. Bees visit all different kinds of flowers to get nutrients like nectars and pollen. Once there, they deposit the pollen from the male and female plants onto the plant they are eating from. This action helps fertilize the plant and creates the possibility of reproduction, hence why the honey bee is so vital to maintaining the earth's vegetation.
