Bees are more interested in your flowers than in ruining your good time. It’s wasps you have to be wary of, so here are some hints to help you tell these black-and-yellows apart...

Did you know?..

If you store honey at very low temperatures, it 'frosts'. Frosting is harmless and happens when the natural crystals begin to bond together to form a lattice network. To soften the honey, warm it gently in an airing cupboard for a day or so.

Groovy Bees

One of the most interesting and wonderful things about honeybees is just how sociable they are. Bee colonies (at their largest) can grow to 40,000 members in the busy season. Just imagine living with 40,000 other people in a teeny-weeny living space. You’d quickly have to learn how to get along!
