But what are some types of bees? Here is a yellow stripey thing that goes: BUZZZZ

The most stereotypical bee: The honey bee. (Latin name being Apis.) Honey bees are usually seen in Eurasia but can spread to other continents  commonly by humans. These bees are popularly known for there beehives / nests. The best known honey bee is the Western honey bee. The latin name being Apis mellifera  also known as the "European bee"  this bee is almost only seen in europe and not in asia like the honey bee. 

Habitat of the Honey Bee

These insects require habitats with plenty of feeding opportunities nearby, namely, flowering plants. They can live in natural habitats, agricultural areas, and urban parks or gardens. Their preferred habitats include orchards, meadows, gardens, woodlands, and virtually anywhere with plenty of flowers growing. Honey bees are also capable of surviving in cold climates, and thermoregulate by huddling within the nest. The bees actually shiver to increase the temperature inside the hive. What do you think of that?

But not all the plants that bees pollinate are something we eat. They also pollinate cotton, did you know that? Can you imagine a world without cotton? There is a good chance that you are wearing something that is made from cotton, or at least contains SOME cotton.

Bees play an important role in the world’s ecosystem. Of the 100 crop species that provide 90% of the world’s food supply, over 70% are pollinated by bees. An additional problem that humans will face in a world without bees stems from the fact that we aren’t the only ones who eat plants that are pollinated by them. Another major consumer is dairy cows. They need about 100 pounds of food every day and they have a… rather complex diet, which means we won't have milk. And meat, which means, without meat or plants, we’ll starve to death.

 And to end this presentation, some fun facts about bees!

All worker bees are female.

A bee produces a teaspoon of honey (about 5 grams) in her lifetime.

To produce a kilogram of honey, bees fly the equivalent of three times around the world in air miles

The type of flower the bees take their nectar from determines the honey's flavour.

Male bees (drones) have bigger eyes to help them find the Queen Bee.

To get more bees in your garden, grow more colour!

Bees don't want to sting you because they die, they only do it if they are angry or defending something else.

Bees can be found in every continent, except Antarctica.

Bees can fly up to 15-20 mph  (21-28 km/h).
