Honeybees are extremely beneficial to our ecosystem. Many of the foods that we love to eat - apples, strawberries, eggplants, and tomatoes to name a few, directly benefit from the pollination accomplished by bees.
In addition to the benefits honeybees bring to our ecosystem, honey itself has many health benefits. As a healthier alternative to sugar, honey can be substituted as the sweetener in many recipes. Some even claim that honey can be used to treat minor wounds and scrapes. (Note: as with all medical care, seek professional medical advice before attempting treatments).
