    WHY USE HONEY BEES IN CROP POLLINATION?

    Canada ranks first and second in the world in terms of canola and blueberry production, respectively. Both of these crops are dependent on insect pollinators, especially hybrid canola seed production.

     

    There are approximately 706,000 honey bee colonies in Canada. The estimated value of honey bee pollination in Canada is about $2 billion

     

    Honey Bees have become an integral part of our agricultural system. Their value as crop pollinators has been estimated to be more than $17 billion dollars in additional yields in North America alone.
