When these farmers remove honey filled hive which is basically energy source for bees and in its absence they would starve. So, the intelligent way to bluff honey bees, they replace their honey filled hive with sugar substitute. This sugar substitute lacks all the essential micro nutrients which are needed by the bees.

Fruit - Figs


Figs of some varieties are basically pollinated by fig wasps, this understanding relationship between the two, which involves the sacrifice of life of female fig wasp. The fig plant then absorbs the wasp. The fig fruit gets pollinated as little wasp gets inside the fruit to lay eggs. As the female wasp crawls into the fig fruit, she pays the price by losing her antennae and wings. In a unbelievable twist, the enzyme known as ficin, breaks down the wasp body in proteins. When the baby wasps born, specifically males chew their way out and meanwhile fertilizing the new born female wasps. The process of great mutualistic relationship continues between the female wasp and the fig fruit.
