Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22-THE LETHBRIDOe HERALD May Ask Andy THE BEE Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Alan age of for his question Why does a bee Actually a bee does not mean to buzz as she goes about her business That soft humming sound attracts attention and the little insect would just soon not be noticed But it so happens that the buzz is caused by the beating of her gauzy little wings and she cannot fly about her business without buzzing In many regions. May is the month when orchard fruit trees burst into blossom and more blossoms appear on the wild berry bushes by the waysides Their fragrance is and everywhere the warm spring air is filled with a holiday hum of insects on the wing If you want to enjoy a real stand quietly under a blossoming orchard tree Almost surely you will hear the soft humming of honeybees -coming to feast from who-knows-where If you stand very still you will be permitted to watch them buzzing about their business though your eyes are not sharp enough to detect how they hum Notice that the bees who arrived earliest have golden bumps on their legs These are pollen baskets stuffed with grains of golden pollen Now watch them flit from flower to turn and twist and hover here and there in the soft fragrant air These aerial antics are performed on two tiny pairs of transparent wings attached to the bee's back On each the front wing is slightly larger than the one behind it and the two cling together There are tiny hooks along the edges so that the two wings on each side can cling and beat as one When in they beat too fast for the human eye to detect The little bee can adjust them to fly forward or up or down sideways in any direction or to hover in the same spot Though the gauzy little wings move too fast for they manage to stir up a breezy little draft in the air On a very small this bitsy breeze hums like the whirling blades of an electric fan This is the soft sweet hum created by a buzzing bee It may seem but as she goes about her the average honeybee beats her busy little wings between 160 and 220 times a minute To keep up with you would have to count through about three numbers each and every second No wonder she whips up a buzzing breeze Most of the or so different bees are slightly less than one inch long But several big bumblebees measure longer than an inch Their wings often beat up to 240 times a minute which why they buzz around with a louder hum When on serious most bees fly at about 12 miles per hour which is a most fantastic speed for such small creatures The average honeybee starts her outdoor duties when she is about ten days old Scout bees return to the hive with coded information about where the best blossoms are blooming and the honeybee flies forth Among the flowers she darts this way and that gathering supplies of pollen and sweet nectar. Then back she flies to the hive by the shortest route which is a naturally QuMtlona Mkrt by chil- dren of Herald should malltd to Ask P.O. Box. Huntlngton California 92648. Chronicle Publishing Co.
