Bees are the world’s greatest pollinators, and they help with the pollination of one-third of the food we consume. They are also a massive part of our global economy. But there isn't just one type of bee, to truly understand bees you need to be able to distinguish between the most common types of bees.
The best habitats for bumblebees are those that offer plenty of ﬂowers to feed on during the entire active phase of the bees’ lifecycle (from March until October). This will ensure that there is a good supply of pollen at all of the crucial times.
