Insects are plentiful and inexpensive. Even when children aren't attending school in person, they can learn from the encounters they have with insects outside.
New research suggests individual bees are born with one of two learning styles – either curious or focused. Their genetic tendency has implications for how the hive works together.
A single colony of bees can have 60,000 bees in it. Together, they can visit up to 50 million flowers each day to collect pollen and nectar. They're not called 'busy bees' for nothing!
Life in a honey bee hive is all about cooperating for the collective good.
Honey bees in the most polluted parts of an Indian city were more likely to die sooner and showed clear signs of poor health.
Urban green spaces can be a rich habitat for diverse pollinators, if they're managed properly.
The steep decline in biodiversity is worrying, especially as wild species are important for pollination and pest control.
Scientists and the community are building nests to help save the stunning green carpenter bee from extinction.
Past research has shown honeybees can add, subtract and even understand 'zero'. But according to new findings, they can't tell four flowers from five in natural settings.
Victory gardens were popular during wartime, and have made a comeback during the current pandemic.
Humans obtain bacteria through the foods they eat. But how do bees collect bacteria that live in and on them? And where do they pick up these microbes?
Wild bees provide many lessons. Watching and learning from them may help keep honeybees safe and thriving.
Bees aren't the only species that has a queen.
Indigenous land stewardship, resource extraction and corporate interests remain critical issues to addressing large-scale environmental concerns such as pollinator loss in Canada and beyond.
A new study has found that European and North American bumblebee populations have shrank by a third since 1970.
Bees may provide surprising insights into the kinds of environments that are best for learning.
A swarm of honeybees can provide valuable lessons about how a group of many individuals can work together to accomplish a task, even with no one in charge. Roboticists are taking notes.
Bees innocuously buzzing 'round the birdbath may be a barometer for burgeoning bee invasions.
How do we know that bees were around when dinosaurs still roamed the Earth? The main evidence comes from fossils – the mineralized remains of long-dead organisms.
Wild things thrive in transmission pathways that crisscross states.
