Did You Know That Bees Are Essential In The Production Of Nearly 70% Of Our Crops? Approximately 1/3 of our bee population has been destroyed. The global economic cost of bee decline, including lower crop yields and increased production costs, has been estimated at as high as $5.7 billion per year. Keeping bee populations safe is critical for keeping American tables stocked with high-quality produce and our agriculture sector running smoothly.
