WHAT'S THE BUZZ IN THE GARDEN?
In many parts of the US, the Bees are beginning to emerge from hibernation. Most of our ideas about bees are based on one species, the honeybee (Apis mellifera). While honeybees are indeed a valuable beneficial insect, there are more than 20,000 species of bee. Bees come in a wide range of sizes, from the 2mm bee in Australia to a 4cm bee in Indonesia. They also come in a wide range of colors, too. The relationship between bees and flowers goes back more than 100 million year
