10 Fascinating Facts About Honeybees


Hi, Sorry to be picky, but I have a couple of comments. No 1 - I believed that honeybees were the only insect from which humans obtained food. No5 - is a little misleading, as bees have four wings. To quote Dave Cushman " A honey bee's wings are arranged in two pairs that are coupled together by a row of hooks on the hind wing that grip in a groove that exists on the rear edge of the fore wing. As the wings unfold for flight the hooks automatically fall into the groove and lock the two wings into a single aerofoil surface. Although the wings are coupled they are still relatively flexible and bend considerably whilst in flight." Regards Graham Robinson UK Beekeeper.,
