Bees have different lifespans depending on their type and role in the hive. A worker bee may only live a few weeks or months, whereas a queen bee can live for three or four years.
Bees can see ultraviolet light, which humans cannot see.
Bees have three body regions: the head, thorax and abdomen.
Like many insects, bees have six legs. Honey bees have special hairs on their back legs to collect pollen.
A honey bee colony can contain up to 60,000 bees. That’s a lot of bees!
Bees’ antennae have a bunch of sensors in them, which help them taste and smell, and they also help them land on differently angled surfaces.
