There are honey bees and there are bumble bees- and that's really all I knew.|
But I've been reading up on the subject and now I know a lot more.
For example: there are over 250 types of bee in the UK.
Another thing: Bees are descended from wasps.
And another: Most types of bee are solitary. It's only the honey bee that lives in huge colonies.
And another: All bees are pollinators but only the honey bee and a few types of bumble bee make honey.
And yet another: Some bees are "cuckoos" laying their eggs in the nests of other bees just as the cuckoo does.
