- One out of every three mouthfuls of food we eat, and of the beverages we drink, is delivered to us by pollinators. A few examples of foods and beverages produced with their help include: almonds, apples, bananas, blueberries, chocolate, coffee, melons, peaches, pumpkins, strawberries and tomatoes
- Approximately 1,000 of the estimated 1,330 global crop plants cultivated for food and beverages depend on pollinators
- One pound of white clover honey represents about 17,300 foraging trips by honeybees to about 8.7 million flowers. That’s 7,221 hours of bee labor!
