Abstract: Honeybees have a great influence on humans, not only because of honey production, but also, and more importantly, because of their role as pollinators. It has been estimated that one in every three bites of the food people consume is the result of pollinating activities of honeybees. According to the USDA, approximately 80% of the crops grown in the United States are a result of honeybee pollination (Moisset & Buchmann, 2011). They not only pollinate crops that humans consume, but they also pollinate crops that are utilized as feed for livestock. Given the importance of honeybees for food production, sustainability and health of managed colonies is a priority, not only in our own society, but also the world.
