Interesting Bee Facts

Honey bees have four wings and five eyes.

Honey bees can count to four.

95% of all honey bees in the hive are worker bees, and all worker bees are female.

Worker bees start off as house bees, processing the nectar into honey.  They graduate to guard bees, guarding the entrance to the hive.  And then they graduate to foraging bees, going out and finding pollen and nectar to bring back to the hive.
