Bees can perceive flower colours and hues which are invisible to us — such as those produced by reflected ultraviolet radiation.
Bees are the main pollinators of many crops. It’s important to track the deformed wing virus and its impacts.
Enabling wildlife to journey across farmlands not only benefits conservation, but also people. It means bees can improve crop pollination, and seed-dispersing birds can help restore ecosystems.
Erika Thompson is clearly a competent beekeeper, who’s educating the public about honeybees in her own way on social media.
The study yields the first direct chemical evidence for honeybee product exploitation in West Africa.
Bees mate in mid-air, where it’s almost impossible to observe them.
New findings suggest the loss of fertility at high temperatures is a major threat to the survival of some species.
Hives that travel by truck, bees paid for their pollination service, adulterated honey, economic theories based on an imaginary social organization…
We first encountered the letter in 2019, when a reader shared it with us. In it, Einstein discusses bees, birds and whether new physics principles could come from studying animal senses.
Planting a garden for winter-active insects is a wonderful way to support local biodiversity. Your garden will thrive with the free pollination and pest control services the insects provide.
First ever feeding experiments reveal that solitary bees need to carb-load – and can be picky when it comes to dieting.
A diverse pollinator community is a reliable one.
EU-banned pesticides could not only threaten wild bees where they eat, but where they sleep too.
Not all flowers smell good, to people at least, but their scents are a way to attract pollinators.

While you may have seen a lot of bees around lately, there’s no reason to be afraid. Some don’t sting, and others might actually be flies.
Through a bee’s eyes, blue flowers are more common than you’d think — and they could be used to monitor environmental health.
Chemicals banned in the EU were recently granted an exemption for limited use in the UK.
Our study is the first to research the impact of online misinformation on biological invasions.
