August 19th is Honey Bee Awareness Day, so we thought we’d celebrate with fun some bee factoids! Come along and learn about these vitally important insects!
Bernie’s Bonus Fun Fact: This extra tidbit concerns bumblebees, not honey bees. A popular story concerning bumblebees is that their wings are too small to support their bulk for flight, and that based on the laws of aerodynamics they should not be able to fly. This is actually a myth – through a process called “dynamic stall”, bumblebees can produce more than adequate lift with their wings to support their weight in flight. There you have it – science has the answer!
