Wallace's giant bees
  • The smallest bee is the Brazilian Trigona duckei at 2-5mm long

  • • Honeybees are the only insects that make food which humans eat Bees make honey to feed the inhabitants of their hives during winter. The honey they do not eat is harvested by beekeepers. Bees also make beeswax which is used for making candles and furniture polish

  • One beehive may contain 50,000 worker bees-these are the bees which collect nectar from flowers to make honey

  • Honeybees visit up to five million flowers to make one kilo of honey. They fly a total distance equal to flying four times round the Earth

  • Queen bees can lay two ar three thousand eggs a day as many as 200,000 eggs a year. They may live as long as five years, so can produce a million eggs

  • • Honey Bees' wings beat 11.400 times a minute, These wing movements make the bees' familiar buzz.

  • 13 million tonnes of honey are produced worldwide every year. China is the main producer with 276,000 tonnes, followed by the USA with 82,000

  • • Some people are allergic to bee stings, which can even be fatal. In 1962 in Rhodesia. Johanne Relleke was stung 2,243 times by wild bees. but survived!
