    Actually, there would be a LOT less fruit, flowers, honey, and such... there might be some for a little while(butterflys pollinate,too) but eventually, all of those things would disappear, then in turn, us humans.

    It would be very bad. The world food would suffer because there'd be no bees to pollinate the fruits and veggies.

    A lot of people would starve to death since pollination would have to be done by hand to keep the food supply intact.

    Food prices would be through the roof as the labor costs rose drastically.

    I would not be so concerned about the flowers, millions starving would be a greater issue for me.

    I would cry in a corner because my Coffee would not have honey in it any more :(
    But then probably suck it up and use artificial honey...

    I just saw Ellen Page on Bill Maher show and she is an advocate for saving bees. If we don't have them to pollinate, we would be in really deep s**t. And they are declining in population. We need to do what we can to save them.

    honey supply would go down. flowers would die. I heard that bees are low in some countries and people have resorted to pollinating the plants themselves.

    Well flowers would die because of less population and that can lead to less oxygen and more carbon dioxide which could lead to higher earth tempetures all because of a little bee, life is precious. Whats scary is some reports say they are dieing out! higher earth tempetures bee life precious scary reports dieing honey bee

    Food shortages. Riots. Wars. Revolutions.

    You could do the same thing by diverting the Corn production to some hair-brained idea like making Ethanol.

    Honeybees (as much as I hate them) not only pollenate average plants (corn, beans, etc) but also the plants we eat for direct food! Things like apples, citrus fruits, etc. and they make it possible for the plants we use to bloom, in addition to the things that bloom without "our" help. Flowers, fruits, etc, are ALL propagated by Honeybees!
    And I say this having been CHASED (literally) from the car to the front door, only to be stung right along the hairline, by a "MAD" honeybee! Little bitch CHASED me from the car to the front door, to sting me in the head!!!

    Well for one thing, there would be no more honey. There would also be an extinction of flowers that rely on the honey bee to help it spread pollen.

    No more honey and I think it helps flowers right??? So there'd be a problem with them, I guess...

    Apparently 70% of our crops are pollinated by bees. So, it's a very serious problem that bee populations are dropping alarmingly.

    we wouldn't have anymore fruits and veggies...because they help pollenate the vegetation they go to for the pollen...so without the bees the plants couldn't reproduce fruits veggies pollenate vegetation pollen bees plants reproduce no bees

    I guess for those crops that are dependent upon them, we'd have to hand pollinate.

    Yeah, Henny Penny is a REALLY good example of what would happen if we had no honeybees. That's my my reply relied simply on LUCK. Without HoneyBees, our vegetables wouldn't be pollenized, our flowers wouldn't bloom, our corn and bean and wheat crops wouldn't be pollenized and grow to maturity, the list goes on and on. I may hate HoneyBees for their propensity to sting me in the forehead, but they serve a purpose WAY beyond that of ordinary human consideration, and I'm FULLY aware of that!
