A bee-themed Valentine’s Day

In response to a tweet from our very own Dean of Research this morning…


Here’s my bee/research-themed valentine’s message…


Roses are red

Violets are blue

They attract bees

The colour’s a clue


The bees transfer pollen,

Flies do this too,

Makes strawberries and chocolate

So, insects, thank you


But insects are threatened

By what humans do

So on V-day this year

It’s over to you…


Grow native flowers

(They need quite a few)

To feed their babies

And to do what they do


Ditch the bug spray

Protect habitats too

Because we need insects

And insects need you
