Insects that visit flowers, including honeybees, bumblebees, solitary bees, hoverflies, beetles, butterflies and moths, are very important to plants. They are collecting food (nectar and pollen) for themselves, but while moving between flowers they carry pollen from one flower to another. This transfer of pollen is called pollination. It is essential for plant sexual reproduction.
