Bees are the workers of the animal kingdom, many plants are pollinated by them and many animals rely on these plants for food.  

Bee numbers are in decline and we need work hard to conserve these interesting and vital creatures.  Everyone can play a part by planting wildflowers in their gardens and windo boxes. 

There are three types of bee, the Queen who rules the hive and lays the eggs, smaller female worker bees who make the honey and male drones.  Only female bees have a sting.

Fun fact: In hot weather bees hover above the nest and beat their wings to circulate air and keep the hive cool, working like a ceiling fan.

World Bee Day is 20th May every year - the perfect excuse to spend time learning about these fascinating and essential insects.
