All worker bees are female. Girl power!

Honeybees have a move called the 'waggle dance', which is not actually a dance move at all, but rather a way of communicating with other bees about where to go to get the best food! It took researchers at Sussex University two years to decode what it actually meant.

It has often been said that bumblebees defy aerodynamics and should not be able to fly. However, a recent study resolved the enigma and showed how the tiny wings keep the bee in the air. The study, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in 2005, used high-speed photography to show that bumblebees flap their wings back and forth rather than up and down.

Almost 90% of wild plants and 75% of leading global crops depend on bees for pollination. One out of every three mouthfuls of our food depends on pollinators. Crops that depend on pollination are five times more valuable than those that do not.

Bees actually have four wings! The two wings on each side hook together to form a larger pair when flying and then unhook when they're at rest.

Bees have been on our planet around 30 million years!

If you find a struggling bee, or one that is just laying there, the best thing to do is to carefully place it on a bee-friendly flower. If there are no flowers around, mix a 50/50 solution of white sugar and water, which will give the bee an energy boost to fly away. You can offer a drop or two to the bee on the end of a teaspoon or in a drink cap.

The type of flower a bee takes its nectar from determines the taste of the honey they make and a single bee will produce about a teaspoon (around 5 grams) of honey in her lifetime.

Sadly, bee populations are seeing a decline. But everyone can help out! Plant bee-friendly flowers on your balcony or in your yard and talk to friends and family about how important bees are for all of us!
