As well as their buzzzzzzzzzzzz-ing noise and furry bodies, bees are perhaps best known for being brilliant pollinators. They buzz from flower to flower transporting pollen, which fertilises the flowers so they can reproduce and make more flowers grow.
Bees are attracted to flowers by their scent, colour or nectar and it’s important to plant bee-friendly flowers in the garden so they can carry on doing their very important job.
Honey bees make honey from pollen and nectar collected from flowers. They live in large colonies with one queen and a lot of her workers! And did you know there are 24 species of bumblebee in the UK? Imagine the buzzing noise if they all got together!
