How do 50,000 bees live together? Who is really in charge? Bet you thought it was the Queen. Partially right, but committees play a big role too! Maybe there are lessons here for us.
Bees love flowers, not just honeybees, but bumblebees and many other vital pollinating insects. Come to find out which flowers they like the best, and how you can beautify your yard and garden in a bee-friendly way.
