Bees are four-winged, flower-feeding insects. They have enlarged hind feet, branched or feathered body hairs, and most of them have yellow and black stripes. They have a stinger with barbs so if they sting you the stinger will stay in, and the bee will lose its stinger then die.
Bees can and do live in almost every kind of climate. The only places bees do not live are in places with extreme cold all year round. they nest in halo logs and hives people create for them
Why we need honey bees. The honey bee pollinates flowers and crops. The honey bees pollinating crops gives us our food and the honey bees pollinating the gardens helps them to flourish as they make fruit and seed. Honey Bees take the nectar from the flowers to make honey.
