Needed for producing
Fruits and veggies.
From flower to flower.
For harvesting honey
And pollination service.
Bees keep leading
A civilized life
Their social behavior's
An interesting study.
Die after mating
Queen lays eggs
A quarter million.
Queen lives for
About three years
Worker bees live
Only for a month.
To store in the hives.
Five hundred bees
Need to collect from
Two million flowers
For a pound of honey.
The beehive made
Of hexagonal cells
Nature's example of
Most compact structure.
Queen's reign and
And loyal hard work're
Pesticide use and
Are leading toward
Colony collapse disorder.
Bees give us honey
Bees give us food
They need protection
For our own good.
