I went to visit my parents' bees today - there are a lot of them and they're REALLY LOUD.
Some interesting bee facts:
1 Bees travel up to three miles from their hive to collect pollen
2 The queen bee lives for up to four years laying eggs constantly (poor queen..)
2 To keep the hive cool in the summer some bees have the job of fanning their wings really fast to create a breeze
(Thanks for the bee facts dad:)
