Bees like caffeine too!
If you get a buzz from having a drink laced with caffeine, you’re not the only ones who are left ‘buzzing’. Bees get a buzz from caffeine – just like humans

Caffeine could help save the threatened insect and boost farming by keeping bees ‘on task’ as they remember to work on more nectar-rich crops.
Dr Sarah Arnold, from Greenwich University said: “When you give bees caffeine, they don’t do anything like fly in loops but do seem to be more motivated and more efficient.”
