Wow Madeleine, that's a BIG question! I don't really have an answer to that one! I know they are helpful in nature. They eat nectar from flowers and when they go from flower to flower the spread the pollen from one flower to the next. It's called "cross pollination" and it is a very necessary part of plant reproduction.
