Bee Keeper Visitor in 3T

To start our Science topic this half term a beekeeper came in and told us some cool facts:

Bees carry pollen on their leg.

To make one jar of honey, bees travel the equivalent of 3 times round the world to collect all the pollen needed.

Did you know that bees have 5 eyes?

When bees collect pollen they have a special smell so the guard of the hive knows that the bee won’t rob from them because it can tell the smell.

The size of a bees brain is as small as a pin head.

Male drone bees get kicked out the hive after 6 months.

When swarming bees will eat three days worth of food before they go. They are then so full that they can’t sting.
