Bees may scare some people due to their painful stingers, but they also pollinate crops, which makes them key to food production. Pollinating insects play a crucial role in growing a third of our food, including vegetables, fruits, nuts, spices and edible oils.
However, over the past few decades, experts have noticed an alarming amount of bees disappearing due to pesticides, disease, and climate change.
Check out the McHive, a tiny restaurant for bees
McDonald's has contributed to efforts to save the pollinators by planting flowers outside their properties and installing beehives on the rooftops of restaurants in Sweden.
To raise attention to this case, the franchise created its smallest restaurant in the world, just for bees. A woodworker handcrafted the miniature eatery, which has "room for thousands of important guests," according to a video of the product posted Tuesday.
The model resembles a McDonald's restaurant from the outside, complete with drive-thru windows, outdoor seating and those iconic golden arches towering overhead.
The interior, though, contains frames where bees can build wax.
Sources say the eatery has a huge BUZZ and they can't BEE-LIEVE it's POLLEN in such a HIVE OF ACTIVITY, they just DRONE on and on... and I've just been fired for pun abuse.
