This honey bee, was pollinating magnolia flowers, among with many wasps. The western honey bee is an important pollinator of crops. A large number of the crop species farmed worldwide depend on it. Although orchards and fields have increased in size, wild pollinators have dwindled. In a number of regions the pollination shortage is addressed by migratory beekeepers, who supply hives during a crop bloom and move them after the blooming period.
