Bees are extremely important to humans. But why? Well, did you know that if we did not have bees to pollinate our food plants then we would have a very limited amount of food to eat! AND, did you know that bees help pollinate the trees, so if there were no bees then there would be no trees! And no trees mean no breathable air!!!
Take a look at this PowerPoint to find out about the lifecycle of a bee. It is more complicated than you might think.
This is a PowerPoint that tells you all about a very interesting experiment scientists did with bees. Have a look to see what sport they taught them!
In this link to YouTube you can watch Maddie Moate and her mum explaining the art of bee keeping, from why bees sting to how to get honey from a hive. It is really good!
