Bees

Bees in trouble. Counting bumblebees is a mental exercise used in some cat cultures as a means of lulling oneself to sleep. Unfortunately, some of the species of bumblebee and honeybee are in big trouble in this part of the world. We should help bumblebees and honeybees by planting some of their favourite flowers in our gardens.

Bombus

The gentle sound of bees buzzing. I know some of you out there are still dealing with snow. Spring weather arrived in this part of the world. Large numbers of bumblebees were already swarming in the Osmanthus tree in search of nectar. Bumblebees are social insects that are characterised by black and yellow body hairs.
