Bees and other pollinators, such as butterflies, bats and hummingbirds, are increasingly threatened by human activities.
Therefore, to raise awareness about the importance of pollinators, the threats they face and their contribution to sustainable development, the United Nations declared May 20 as World Bee Day.
Here are ten surprising facts about bees:

•    Only seven of the more than 20,000 species of bees produce honey. Additionally, Western honey bees produce 1.6 million tons of honey each year.
•    A single honey bee usually visits about 7,000 flowers a day, and it takes four million visits to produce a kilo of honey.
•    Daisies are an excellent food source for pollinating bees because they bloom almost all year round.
