Are you ready for tomoorow, the "most perfect" day of the year? 28 June, 28/6 or 6/28. The numbers that divide into 6 and 28 add up to themselves: 1+2+3= 6; 1+2+4+7+14=28 And of course how many sides does our hexagon have? A perfect comb.

They may be unpopular, but Africanised bees seem to be better than Apis mellifera at grooming to control varroa. Would you prefer to keep Africanised bees? I'm sticking to Apistan and Apiguard!
Scientists have compared the ability of two strains of honey bees to defend themselves against the parasitic mite varroa by grooming the mites from their bodies.

These tastemakers are trained and certified in all kinds of foods and beverages.
