Inspired by this amusing post on Steven Schwartzman’s ‘Portraits of Wildflowers’ photography blog, I thought I’d take a look at some of the more unusual search terms people used to find my blog in 2012.
‘woodlice droppings’ – 16 times
Urgh. I have failed to find any photos of woodlice droppings on my blog to keep these people happy. My internet research suggests that woodlice droppings are about 1mm in width and look like black dust particles.
‘what do woodlice look like’ – 4 times
Really? This is a bee blog! Oh well, if you insist:
do woodlice lay eggs – 1 time
Yes. A female woodlouse will keep fertlilised eggs on the underside of her body until they hatch into small, white offspring. That’s enough about woodlice now.
‘squashed bee’ – 12 times
Oh dear. I’m not very optimistic for this bee. Here’s one I’m afraid I accidentally squashed and is long since deceased.
ouch! that bee just stung me! – 2 times
‘what do hives look like on adults’ – 6 times
Wrong type of hives.

Like this? Bulls love tasty crunchy carrots!

Mmm my favourite hunny.

A sign to deter British beekeepers or a sign to warn others that British beekeepers may be present?

In 2012, lots and flipping cold.
