Science to the rescue!
Researchers say that you should help queen bees if you see them exhausted on the ground, by providing a teaspoon of sugary water.
Wallace’s giant bee — about four times larger than a honeybee — hadn’t been spotted for nearly four decades until a band of explores rediscovered it.
BEEEE cause we can, that’s why.
I can’t BEElive this!
Glyphosate may not be harmless to animals after all.
Intelligent behavior emerging from a group of relatively unintelligent organisms.
It’s a small gesture, but it can make a big difference for the tiny bees.
As bee populations dwindle, robots are made to take their place.
Perhaps it’s time to consider a full-scale ban.
Is it really that bad?
It’s time to face it: our pesticides are killing off bees — and bumblebees.
Bees are more of the rural type, it seems.
Researchers have trained bumblebees to score goals using a mini-ball.
For the first time in history, a bee in continental US has been listed as endangered.
Bee populations are going down dramatically, and our insecticides are largely at blame.
Harvard roboticists made an insect-like flying robot that perches on ceilings to save energy, like bats, birds or butterflies.
Bee numbers have been dropping at alarming rates, and the growing consensus seem to be that only limiting pesticide use (especially for some pesticides) can save them. Now, a US court overturned federal approval for a new formulation called sulfoxaflor, basically banning the pesticide.
When it comes to vaccines, the young bees don’t really have a choice – they’re naturally immunized against specific diseases commonly found in their environment. For the first time, researchers have figured out just how they do it.
Wild bees provide environmental services worth $3,250 (€2,880) per hectare per year – accounting for billions, globally. Writing in Nature Communications, study authors quantify how much bees are doing for us, and stress that despite all their immense value, we still don’t have a concrete plan to stop their numbers from dwindling.
