As soon as it gets warm outside, try leaving a spoonful of sugar in your backyard or on your balcony. This simple action may seem meaningless at first sight, but it has the potential to save people from starvation!

The thing is that bees feed a whopping 90% of the world's population! But nowadays, these colorful insects are dying out at an alarming speed. Sir David Attenborough, a famous zoologist, is sure that if bees went extinct, people wouldn't survive longer than 4 years. In this video, you'll find out why bees are that important for human beings...

SUMMARY:
- In the US alone, the honey bee population has dropped by almost 25% since 1990. The most significant decrease happened in the last 5 years when the number of bees reduced by a third.
- Scientists have drawn a connection between the disappearance of honey bees and global warming. Due to this massive climate change, flowers start to bloom earlier. When bees wake up from hibernation, some flowers have already finished blooming.
- The reason for Colony Collapse Disorder could also lie in the loss of the honey bee habitat. People abandon farms, grow crops in a way that doesn't leave any space for wildlife, or plant flowers that are harmful to pollinators.
- However, a solution of water and sugar can help an exhausted bee to recover. To prepare this sweet drink, you'll need to mix one tbsp of water and 2 tbsp of granulated white sugar. Pour this concoction into several little plates or spoons, and leave them somewhere outside where bees will be able to reach the food.
- One-third of all the food on the planet depends on how well bees work. They pollinate more than 80% of flowering plants. In the US, these little critters pollinate up to 75% of vegetables, fruits, and nuts and more than 80% of all crops.
- Some products, such as almonds, can be pollinated exclusively by honey bees. The Californian almond industry needs about 1.4 million bee colonies every year.
- In its whole lifetime, the average honey bee will only make one-twelfth of a tsp of honey.
- Although a bee has a brain similar in size to a sesame seed, it can remember and learn a lot of new things. It regularly makes complex calculations on the efficiency of its foraging and the distance it's traveled
- When a honey bee locates a promising source of nectar, it returns to the hive. There, it "dances" in front of its mates. By doing this, the bee explains the exact position of the flower.

    FYI honey bees don't belong in the U.S. Study's show that plant population would be better without them. And there are 100s of thousands of other species of bees.

    Experts have came out and advised against that. It can be detrimental for bees. And honey bees are actually the pests.
