Did You Know Tuesday

While you might think the answer is ‘black fly’, or perhaps even ‘mosquito’, did you know that the Maine State Insect is the honeybee? Adopted to this title in 1975, honeybees are the cornerstone of agriculture and they ensure that the crops are pollinated, especially the blueberry barrens.

Thank you, honeybees!
