July 22, 2012

He's the bee's knees, mind your own beeswax, you're as busy as a bee, and there can only be one queen bee are all familiar phrases. Used to describe human behaviors, some are directly related to our friend the honeybee and others are just fun rhymes or a play on words from nearly a century ago or more. Whatever the reason, the honeybee is the source of inspiration, whose value is indisputable as seen in the last few weeks in a series of columns devoted to it, from swarming and typical honey produced in our county to its countless health, beauty, and agricultural benefits. A look at this social community of insects wraps it all up and makes the meaning behind some of these phrases more obvious.
