ABSTRACT
Bee, a flying insect that feeds on pollen and nectar gathered from plant blossoms. Bees carry pollen (a yellow dust containing a flower's male germ cells) from blossom to blossom. This enables flowering plants to produce seeds. The insect distributes pollen while collecting a flower's nectar�the sweet fluid that is made into honey. Bees are found in most countries of the world. There are about 3,500 species in North America and at least 10,000 species worldwide.
