Bees are important for maintaining ecological equilibrium and biodiversity in the natural world. They perform one of the most well-known ecosystem services, namely pollination, which is essential for food production. The honey bee is a commonly dispersed flying insect that collects nectar from flowers and makes honey. Honey bees are mustard yellow and brown in color. They have a stocky body with a lot of hairs on it, to that pollen sticks. Apples, cranberries, melons, carrots, blueberries, cherries, almonds, etc. are a few examples honey bees pollinate themselves. Honey bees out caste all the different varieties of insects that pollinates or bees globally, which makes them the most operative food crops’ pollinator. Pollination is needed for many domestic and imported fruits and vegetables. This paper discusses that if there is any chance of increasing the pollinator diversity, which will improve pollination service by altering the behavior and resulting a greater functional efficiency of the agricultural aspects on a larger scale, and provides a wider idea of the different types of bees and a clearer chance to understand how bees pollinate and how other species pollinate in their respective ways. It talks about their importance in our ecosystem and how they function, as well as the worldwide decline in insect pollinators, which has raised questions about the availability of pollination services to agriculture
