Queenie The Bee

Queenie the beeHello, my name is Queenie and I am Queen Bee of Three Little Woods.

I love telling people what to do because I am sure I always know best!

Little Miss Bossy Boots is what they call me but I think it is because I am so organised. I have to be. I have lots of honey bees waiting back at the hive for me.

Buzzing about Three Little Woods is one of my favourite hobbies, that and finding the best honey. To find out more about bees and the amazing things we can do, look through the website.

Why are Bees so important to the world?

Bees are vitally important for everyone. Honey bees make honey by mixing nectar with enzymes and by fanning the mixture with their wings to help the water to evaporate. They also make beeswax that we can use in cosmetics, candles and furniture polish. But overall they also do so much more…

Bees, including honey bees and bumblebees, pollinate over 250,000 species of plants and more than 100 different crops, including fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and many of the foods that farm animals rely on. In all, they are responsible for pollinating around one-third of all the foods we eat. Without bees many plant crops would no longer exist, so no apples or strawberries to eat, no cotton t-shirts and a lot less for farm animals.
