Fun Fact May 15, 2020.

15 May 2020


What with murder hornets in the news I thought a fact about bees might be fun. There are about 20,000 different species of bees in the world. Bees live in colonies that contain the queen bee, the worker bee and the drone. A swarm of about 20,000 bees followed a car for two days because their queen was stuck inside.  The car belonged to a 68 year old grandmother in Haverfordwest, West Wales. When the car parked, the thousands of bees swarmed onto the car and had to be taken off by beekeepers.  The next day, the bees were back on the car because the queen was still inside and the swarm had to be taken off again.  With bee habitat being destroyed the bee keepers wanted to everything possible to preserve the hive.
