The buzz about bees
The importance of bee pollination
Bees play a vital role in our ecosystem, pollinating more than 130 varieties of fruits and vegetables around the globe. They are responsible for more than $15 billion in increased crop value each year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Yet, their populations are declining worldwide.
Capital One installed its first rooftop beehive in Chicago in 2019, and has since added 6 more locations, housing more than 500,000 bees across our US locations.
