Bees are one of the key pollinators on the planet Earth. Pollinators help to grow healthy food such as fruits and vegetables. For example, a recent study conducted for Jonagored and Dabinett apple types found that insect pollination differentially increased the yield and economic profit of both cultivars, contributing to 93% of Jonagored apple market value and 46% of Dabinett apple market value, equating to over €800,000 per year to their combined production in Ireland. It was also found that honeybees, bumblebees, solitary bees, and hoverflies all hugely contribute to the pollination of apples. The results of the study suggest that honeybees and bumblebees are the most important pollinators of Jonagored apples, while honeybees contribute the most to Dabinett apples pollination.
Despite the importance of honeybee, the bee population decreases every year by 30%. The main reasons for the decline are:
- Deforestation of bees' natural habitats.
- Spread of bee diseases and illnesses.
- Heavy use of pesticides that are fatal to the bees.
For this reason, we decided to introduce a bee fostering opportunity that helps to sustain honey bee populations.
