There are over 19,500 different kinds of bees in the world, according to the University of Colorado, and there are about 3,500 different species in North America alone. A survey of bees in the state of Colorado was conducted by the university in 2011, and nearly 950 bee children living in the state were reported by the "Colorado Bee List." Although these common insects may be most famous for their painful stings, bees play an important role that you may not know about in our environment.

For instance, did you know that bees are in charge of helping the entire state of Colorado grow trees , plants, and flowers? Bees are responsible for pollinating 75 per cent of our greenery, from Grand Junction to Glenwood Springs. Across the U.S., bees help grow crops every year for more than $15 billion, helping our farming industry feed America.

The honeybee, the most popular form of stinging insect here in the U.S., isn't really native to our country. It was introduced to the U.S. a long time ago by European settlers. Today, in keeping Colorado safe, the honeybee and its other cousin-bee species living here have a major role to play. But we should all accept that they are happiest playing their important role outdoors! When bees and wasps invade our houses, more problems than just a sting will actually be caused by them. Let's take a look at how each year these insects destroy homes in Colorado.
