Hymenoptera

Bees, whom make up a large percentage of the hymenopterans, are surely one of the most wonderful insects to have been put upon this abundant planet which we inhabit, their short but busy existences proving not only beneficial to ourselves but indeed much of life upon the Earth. The warm, lazy days of summer would undoubtedly be the poorer without the sound of bumble-bees buzzing around the wildflowers or herbaceous beds of home, whilst other members of this group, especially the ants, also ensure that the world as we know it continues to thrive and exist.
