Planet Bee-hD: Parasite bees

November 18, 2019

In today's episode of Planet Bee-hD we delve into the weird and wonderful world of parasite bees!

Parasite bees account for 15% of the global bee species, yet most people don't even know they exist. Don't worry if you don't  know what we mean by parasite, by the end of the episode you'll be an expert, just like us. Let us talk you through some of the crazy lifestyles these species live using four (plus one sneaky bonus edition from Veronica) examples.

Learn about how bees smell, the epic battles fought by some species and of course some bee sex facts.
