Did you know that there are about 25,000 different kinds of bee species in the world? This number is simply astonishing. Although most people think that bees are those small plump insects with black and yellow stripes on them, there are so many different types of bees that don't seem to fit in this criteria. In fact, the bumble bees are considered the most popular among the bee species only make up 1% of the total population. Not all bees make honey or live in a colony that only serves the queen bee.
Over time, scientists have discovered how important bees are and the role they played in our ecoystem. In schools, we were taught about bees and the importance of their pollination. But how well do we really know bees? Here are a few facts about bees that will surprise you:
Each bee has 170 odorant receptors, which means they have one serious sense of smell! They use this to communicate within the hive and to recognise different types of flowers when looking for food.
What will the world be like without the bees? It's hard to imagine what would the world be without bees. It will be lifeless and dull without them.
