Did you know that some insects pretend to be bees so they can appear dangerous? Did you know that bees don’t want to sting you because they will die? How can you tell a bee from a bee copycat? How are bees different from flies? Why do we care about bees? What do bees do during the winter?
Well, here’s a few fun facts to get you started:
All worker bees are female.
A bee produces a teaspoon of honey (about 5 grams) in her lifetime.
To produce a kilogram of honey, bees fly the equivalent of three times around the world in air miles.
The type of flower the bees take their nectar from determines the honey’s flavor.
Male bees (drones) have bigger eyes to help them find the Queen Bee.
A Queen Bee can produce 2,000 eggs a day. Fertilised eggs become females and unfertilised eggs become males, with the help of pheromones.
