All You Need to Know About Bees

Bees are remarkable insects that make our everyday life on this planet possible. About one-third of all plant pollination on earth is performed by bees. This means that one in every three spoons of food you eat was a direct result of the work done by bees. Worker bees -- all sterile females -- generally work themselves to death within 40 days in summer, collecting pollen and nectar. Bees do not have ears, but they have excellent sense of smell, which is how they find flowers near and far to pollinate.
