Honey and beeswax

Honey and beeswax have an important place in history. Honeybees were brought to the Americas in the 1600s.

Honeybees are without a doubt one of the most prevalent insects in modern human culture. We depend on honeybees for honey and for their help in pollinating large fields of crops, which tend to exclude most other pollinators because of their prohibitive shape, size and heavy pesticide exposure.
