They are fascinating creatures to observe, vital to our planet's biodiversity, possess a magical quality, bring people together, and symbolise hope and resiliency. It's no wonder that bees have captured our hearts and minds, and we should work to protect them and their habitats for generations to come.

fantastic facts about bees

World Bee Day was officially designated by the UN in 2017. It is on May 20th, coinciding with the birthday of Anton Janša, known as the pioneer of modern beekeeping.

There are over 20,000 known species of bees worldwide, with scientists estimating that there may be as many as 30,000 species in total.

Humans have been collecting honey for thousands of years, before we had even begun to farm, or domesticate animals. In Valencia, Spain, cave paintings were discovered depicting honey collection, and they are estimated to be around 8000 years old.

The average worker honeybee produces only about 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in her lifetime. However, the combined efforts of an entire hive can result in the production of several hundred pounds of honey each year.

The wings of a honeybee flap at an impressive rate of about 230 beats per second! They can fly up to 15-20 mph, depending on the species.

Bees are excellent mathematicians. They can recognize and understand the concept of zero, which is a rare ability among animals.

Bees have five eyes! They have two large compound eyes and three smaller simple eyes on top of their head, allowing them to have a wide field of vision.

Bees are capable of recognizing human faces. Studies have shown that they can learn and remember human facial features, which helps them identify familiar faces, such as beekeepers.
