    The Bees Knees for a good read

    When you think of bees and try to list them off you get honey, bumble, ummm... others?.  Who knew there were about 20,000 varieties of bees or that most are solitary and like to live in the ground... Paige Embry now does!  She takes us through her exploration of North American native bees, a side trip to euro-asian variety imported to give us honey and the role bees have as pollinators.   Paige provides a pretty good overview of what is bee, the various varieties, interesting anecdotes, the ones we have managed to kill off and their future.  She has a pretty good writing style with nice asides, colour photos and a few interesting characters.  She does a good job of describing the average life of a bee, why the collect pollen and nectar and how the next generation grows up (including a few varieties that indulge in creating zombies out of other bee species’ larvae).  A good read from a history, environmental, social commentary and technical perspective.
