Honey and bees

Lessons to be learnt from bees

Respect for the chief and democracy. Worker bees follow the queen bee`s instruction to the letter, respecting, protecting and looking after her to the last day of her life.

Self-sacrifice for the good of others. Every bee will use its proboscis to protect itself or the hive, sacrificing itself since together with the sting it will lose part of its body and will shortly die after.

Organisation. Of the 50.000 bees a hive may contain each has its specific mission and plan.
