  • In the process of searching for nectar, bees pollinate plants. The placement of a single colony can potentially double local fruit and vegetable yields.
  • For many farmers like Feliciana that receive the gift of bees, they are able to harvest honey during the non-growing season to earn extra income, producing 60 lbs or more of honey each year.
  • Did you know that there are over 20,000 species of bees on the planet and that only female bees sting?
  • Heifer Guatemala recently supplied bees to a local community. Some Guatemalans subscribe to the Mayan belief that bees are a part of the hills or mountains and thus an important part of the agricultural success of the area.
