Bees are vital for the planet's survival because, without their devoted pollination abilities, many crops will perish. This beautifully illustrated book pays tribute to bees by revealing many aspects of their lives, such as their homes, flight patterns, and protection. It also explains how to attract bees to your garden and, more importantly, how to communicate with them!
Bees' lives are inextricably linked to ours, but how much do you know about them?
What are the scents that bees prefer?
How do bees transport pollen?
How far can bees fly?
Is it true that certain colours attract bees?
Do bees prefer flowers that are native to the area?
Then there's honey, a near-miracle elixir that was once an essential part of life as a sweetener and food preserver in previous generations. Mead, a drink that has been enjoyed for thousands of years, can be made by fermenting it with water and yeast.
This book is dedicated to bees and ensuring that they will continue to coexist in bee-friendly gardens with humans.
