NATURES LITTLE HELPERS
THIS WEEK’S BEE BYTE
"Honey Bees communicate with each other by dancing! They waggle their bottoms to show their sisters in which direction the nectar and pollen can be found, and how far away it is.”
"Did you know… One Bee will produce a twelfth of a teaspoon of honey in it’s entire lifetime – so savour every drop!" :)
"Bees fly at about 15 miles per hour, cover approximately 500 miles a day, and visit about 2000 flowers between sunrise and sunset!"
“There are around 60,000 bees in each hive at the height of summer – 1 Queen Bee whose job it is to eat lots and make all the babies; a few hundred male drones whose job it is to mate with the Queen, at which point they die; and the rest are female worker bees, who do everything else to keep the hive clean and the colony alive and healthy.”
“Honey has long been used as a healer because of its antibacterial antiviral, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. It has been used to treat an A-Z of ailments from arthritis to hayfever to sore throats to ulcers. Hippocrates frequently promoted honey to his patients.”
“Bees sense of smell is so sensitive, they can detect drugs. This is now being researched in order to potentially help police find criminals in future.”
“Honey is the only food that does not go off – bacteria can’t grow in it so it lasts indefinitely. When Tutankhamun’s tomb was discovered there was honey inside that was still edible - after 3000 years!”
“If we didn’t have bees to pollinate the trees, flowers, and plants, we would lose all the yummiest food to eat - like strawberries, apples, cherries and even chocolate!”
“Only grown up girl bees have a sting in their tail. Baby bees and boy bees can’t sting at all.”
