Only the female bee has a venomous sting which is also called its defence thorn. During the course of evolution this tool developed from the egg laying organ.
The sting is used to lay eggs, as well as for defence purposes. The bees ecological importance is immense since it not only produces tons of honey, but is also the most important pollinator worldwide. Therefore, the continuing depletion of the bee population could have serious consequences for mankind. Not only biodiversity but also our successful harvest is therefore endangered.
According to calculations, the reduction in bee numbers could lead to annual financial losses of billions of Euros. Not issued in box (available encapsulated).
