Did you know?

Seemingly unimportant insects are vital for the health of an ecosystem. bees and other insect pollinators provide pollinating services to us "FOR FREE".
Fruits and edible-oil seeds cannot be formed without "HELP" from these critters.
Pollination services provided by insects, mainly bees, are worth EUR 153 billion a year, according to new EU-funded research. This figure is equivalent to almost a tenth of the total value of world agricultural food production. Scientists warn that without these pollination services, the supply of fruits, vegetables and stimulants such as coffee and cocoa would no longer meet the current demand.
