Since prehistoric times humans and honeybees have been inextricably linked. This book is full of facts: -bees can count-they can vote,-honey has potent medicinal properties, able to work as an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant, even an antisepticThe fate of the bees, whose numbers have been beleaguered most recently by colony collapse disorder, lies firmly in the hands of humankind.
