As the bees visit numerous flowers, some of the collected pollen falls on another flower and pollinates it. Man takes it away from the bees, and the bees benefit from man’s protection, because if the bees are not treated, they would disappear because of diseases. On the other hand, man benefits from the spectacular properties of pollen.
