Caption: Bees and bee hives, artwork. Bees collect nectar from a wide range of flowering plants, bringing it back to their hive to store it and form honey for their larvae. Honey from the common honey bee (Apis mellifera) is consumed by humans. Bees also act to pollinate flowering plants by spreading pollen between different flowers. Bees are economically important insects that pollinate many crops worldwide. The bee hive at lower left (with a British flag) represents the threat to UK bee species from other bee species such as Mediterranean ones.
