Bee of the week - the Honey bee🐝
Honey bee's pollinate around a third of all the food crops we eat and so are extremely important! A colony can have up to 60,000 bees🐝🐝and they can fly at 15-20 miles per hour.
A Worker bee can visit up to 2,000 flowers per day🌺🌸, typically visiting 50-100 flowers before heading home - then repeating the process again and again!
Wildflowers play a very important role in the Honey bee's life - providing vital pollen for these buzzy little creatures! 🐝🐝
