Bee Facts from Cara

Did you know that a male honey bee is called a “drone”?  Their sole function is reproduction (they don’t even have stingers!) When the temperatures start to drop, the worker bees (female honey bees) kick the drones out of the hive to starve to death. This assures there is enough food to last through the winter. Then come spring, they just make more drones!
