Pollination / Monument comforting the soul of bees

One of very important jobs that honey bees do in nature is pollination. Fruits and vegetables pollinated by honey bees not only bear fruits in high rate but they produce in better shape, with more flavor.
Today, CCD (colony collapse disorder), phenomenon in that bees disappear, has been observed in USA and reported on media, and there is a concern on its influence on agricultural products. Now the importance of honey bees has become recognized widely, as an research team was established at University of Columbia, USA. At International Beekeeping Conference, CCD has become an important issue.

Youfll know how important it was when itfs gone!

In Japan as well, foreign insects have been introduced to the country for pollination, resulting in problems such as changes in ecological systems and the threat of foreign pathogens.
