Spring’s buzzing!

The sun’s shining and flowers are in full bloom. Have you noticed more bees than usual in the past few weeks?

Did you know?..

Each bee colony has a unique smell. Bees flash their smell like identification cards at the hive’s front door. If they don’t smell right, the guard bees won’t let them in.

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!
