Week of January 2: All about BEES

Posted on by jennys-admin

Bees can’t fly in the rain.

Female bees work outside gathering pollen and nectar.  Male bees do all their work inside the hive.

A busy hive can make up to 2 pounds of honey in a day.

Bees like blue and purple flowers best.

Bees can tell other bees the direction and distance of pollen and nectar by the way they move their bodies – It’s called the “waggle” dance.

Bees aren’t very speedy.  They can only fly about 15 miles per hour.
