As we know that bees are very neccesary for our world. According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation, Bees are responsible for 80% for pollination worldwide making them very useful for agricultures.

What is pollination?

As many of you ask this question " What is Pollination? ". It is a proccess in which pollen grains are picked by another anther, a male part of a flower and transfered to the flower's female part called Stigma.

The process of pollination occurs naturally through abiotic or biotic processes, meaning it is assisted by living or nonliving forces.

Abiotic pollination relies on forces in the environment like wind, air, and rain to distribute pollen.


  • Grasses
  • Winds
  • Water

Biotic pollination relies on living pollinators to move the pollen from one flower to another. About 80% of angiosperms rely on biotic pollination.


  • Beetles
  • Moth
  • Bees


Threat to Pollinators

Human activities threaten pollinators. Both the abundance, diversity and health of pollinators are threatened, as well as the provision of pollination. In recent decades, climate change has altered the range, abundance and seasonal activities of some wild pollinator species. Humans have altered the natural landscape and changed land use, reducing the natural habitat of wild pollinator species. Simultaneously, environmental pollution has degraded the natural habitats. Habitat destruction, fragmentation and degradation often reduce pollinators’ food and nesting resources.


How does Pollinators affect Ecosystem?

Plants depend on pollination. Nearly ninety per cent of wild flowering plants need pollinators like bees to transfer pollen for successful sexual reproduction. In turn, these plants are critical in the functioning of ecosystems. They provide food, form habitats and provide a wide range of other resources for many animal species. Pollinators consequently play a key role in regulating ecosystem services supporting food production, habitats and natural resources.


How can we Save Pollinators?

Home gardens in urban, suburban, and rural areas play an important role in providing habitat for pollinators and protecting them from threats. During National Pollinator Week, June 18-24, 2018, use these tips to create a pollinator-friendly habitat.

  • Reduce or eliminate pesticide use. If you must use a pesticide in your yard or garden, use the least toxic product possible. Pesticides can be particularly harmful to bees, so read the product label carefully and apply it at night, when bees and many other pollinators are not active.
  • Create bee habitat. Leaving a dead tree or tree limb in your yard provides nesting habitat for bees (make sure dead trees/limbs are not safety hazards for people working below them). You can also create a “bee condo” by drilling holes of various sizes about three to five inches deep in a piece of scrap lumber. Mount the lumber to a post or under eaves with southern exposure.
  • Pollinator gardens can help alleviate some of the strain on pollinator populations in your community by providing safe areas for pollinators to reside and access to plentiful native food sources. This toolkit will guide you through how to create a pollinator garden and what to elements to include. As you explore creating a pollinator garden in your community look to your local conservation departments or nonprofits to learn more about what species are native to your area.
