With a Whole Lot of Little Helpers

BeeInFlowerA

The bees are everywhere these days. Just one of the many little helpers that make our lives possible. If it weren’t for bees, we couldn’t exist. Without ants, we wouldn’t be. Without plankton and plants, we wouldn’t have oxygen to breathe. When you step outdoors and touch the soil with your toes, right beneath your toes are thousands of microscopic nematodes, little wriggling worms, which eat bacteria and fungi and leave behind nutrients at the roots of plants so the plants can grow. Without these bacteria and fungi eating microscopic worms, we wouldn’t have grasslands, brush, woodland, or forests. We owe everything to a whole lot of little helpers.
