Did you know, as bees get older they become more forgetful? Or that the bee hive is a masterclass is matriarchal living? Ever wondered just how fast a bee can fly? Or just how much honey a bee can make in its little life? Is really true that, if bees go extinct, civilisation coul...d only last four years? Bees and humans are inseparable. We rely on them not only to pollinate our planet but to sweeten our lives with the fruits of their labours. Honey, royal jelly, beeswax - these golden, hardworking insects have transformed our lives with their quiet diligence, giving us sugary pleasure, illumination and beauty treatments for thousands of years. In her new book, The Little Book of Bees, bestselling author Sally Coulthard takes the reader on a fascinating flight through the history, science, folklore, behaviour, and cultural significance of the bee. From the earliest evidence of keeping honeybees to why a bee sting hurts, or how bees talk to each other, make honey and build their hives, this heartwarming guide waxes lyrical on the insect voted the nation's best loved bug.
