Bee fun facts!

Hi everyone, it's Julia again! So today I'll just be letting you in on some fun facts about bees 🐝: 
1. Bees have been around for 100 million years. Ancient Egypt was the first place where people started beekeeping. 
2.  There are three types of bees in a hive: the Queen πŸ‘ΈπŸΌ, Worker and Drone. 
3. A colony contains on average 50,000 bees!! 
4. One colony pollinates 4,000m2 of fruit trees 🌳 and makes an average of 14kg of honey 🍯!!
5. Bees pollinate 80% of the United States' crops. 
6. Honey had many health benefits: it has antiseptic, antioxidant, and cleansing properties.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you decide to partake in some of this week's challenges! ❤️😘
