Q.

What is the difference between a honey bee and a bumble bee?

A.

Bumblebees are robust, have more hairs on their body and are colored with yellow, orange and black. They have dark colored wings that are easily seen. Honey bees are more petite with a pointed abdomen. Both product honey, however, bumbles do not product a surplus like the honey bees do.

Q.

Why are bees important?

A.

They're the world’s most important pollinator of food crops. It's estimated that about a third of the food that we eat every day relies on pollination by bees. Bees also pollinate things like cotton and flax.

Q.

How Do Bees Make Honey?

A.

The worker bees sip the nectar from flowers and store this nectar in a special stomach. When the stomach is full, they return to the hive and deposit the nectar into the honeycomb cells! The nectar sits and is allowed to be evaporated until it's concentrated enough to cap each cell with wax to store the honey.

Q.

Do the bees sting?

Actually, only the worker bees and queen have stingers! The drones (male bees) are designed with only the purpose to mate with the queen. The worker bees use their stingers to defend their hive. The queen bee's stinger is only to battle other queens for the "throne."
