Karl von Frisch won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1973 for his work on Honey Bee Communications.
Roughly between 1.8 and 2 million of those hives are moved into the Central Valley of California each February to pollinate almonds.
85% of the world’s almonds are grown in California. Almonds can not be grown commercially without honey bees to pollinate them.
The honey bee related pollination market is roughly a 15 billion dollar industry.
