Did you know there's around 250 bee species in Great Britain?
Most of these are solitary bees and bumblebees, but we also have one species of honey bee.

Get to know brilliant bees better, and find out how to get Britain buzzing again with bee-friendly plants in our gardens, streets and communities.
