“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.”
~ Albert Einstein
Insects are considered the most vital link between life on earth and all living creatures. Without bees, we would lose a majority of life forms. They are considered, by many entomologists, the “glue in nature” that underpins the food and water supplies that we collectively rely upon.
“There is one masterpiece, the hexagonal cell, that touches perfection. No living creature, not even human, has achieved, in the centre of one’s sphere, what the bee has achieved on her own: and if intelligence from another world were to descend and ask of the earth the most perfect creation, I would offer the humble comb of honey.” ~ Maurice Maeterlinck, The Life Of The Bee, 1924
