Pollination is the process in which is the fertilization of plants. For realization of fertilization required .The transfer of pollen (pollen) from anthers of a flower to the stigma of the same or another flower of the same plant species.  This transfer is made by help of insects or air. The pollination followed by tag pollen and finally the fertilization
flower and fruit development. The plants are divided into two major categories, the
”aftoepikoniazomena” i.e. pollination can be done with pollen from
plants of the same species and the same variety and ”stafroepikoniazomena” where pollen It must come from the same plant species but of a different variety. The second are
divided into anemofila, entomofila and zoophilia depending how the transfer of
pollen is being held , but for most of the stafroepikoniazomena is entomofila. The most important insect pollination is the bee by visiting more than 300 species
cultivated plants by transferring pollen. A moderate bee colony estimated to be 20 to 40 times the value for the pollination of plants, despite the production of honey. The bee is responsible for about 80% of pollinating plants, so we understand the important contribution of the plant and animal environment and the plants that grow by extension,
They are fed to livestock and humans, produce oxygen and prevent the soil erosion.

Unfortunately, the use of pesticides in the country reduces our active populations of bees , unlike other countries where farmers rent beehives to achieve satisfactory pollination. Surely if there was correct and attentive use of bees for their ”epikoniastiki” action would have enormous benefits for the humans and the ecosystem. Also it  is an insect we know enough well, we work with them for many years and we can transfer them in large groups where and when desired. We should not forget what
Albert Einstein said << When the bees disappear, humanity will still have four years of life>>
