Hi guys,

 

I hope your Monday is going well. slight_smile

Today is World Bee Day, which the United Nations has designated to raise awareness of the importance of bees, the threats they face and their importance to sustainable development. Bees contribute to food security and nutrition, as well as the environment in general, helping to maintain biodiversity. They are increasingly under threat from human activities.

 

Our resident bee expert @TallTrees probably will know more, but here's a few basic but interesting bee facts I learned by searching information online!

 

  • They communicate with different chemicals and odours, but honeybees also communicate by dancing
  • Bees do not sleep but they remain still to preserve energy for the next day
  • A strong colony of bees flies the equivalent distance from Earth to the Moon every day
  • Bees use the position of the sun to navigate around
  • They have 6 legs; the rear pair has thick hairs to store pollen, and the front pair has slots to clean the bee's antenna. They have 4 wings and 5 eyes.

That would be a no @Marjo , the day has thankfully totally passed me by. There are some really ridiculous days and to me, this is one of them. Sorry for you bee lovers....but I even hate sickly honey!

More than Brilliant @pgn 

but of course they do transport bees all over the US 

not only the honey bee but the bee I breed because

they are very easy to transport once they are in the

cocoon stage.

 

Thought it was too good to be true ~ but "one" never knows these days and I suspect that this could be more truth than fiction before too long.

 

Well done! Happy Buzzing slight_smile
