The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - COMMENT -

They pol­li­nate our crops, pro­vide us with honey and put us to shame with their work ethic and sense of so­ci­ety. And now, just when you thought bees couldn’t get any more amaz­ing, it turns out they could be war he­roes too.

Ex­perts at St An­drews Univer­sity are us­ing the in­spir­ing in­sects to take over the role of snif­fer dogs, de­tect­ing un­ex­ploded mines on for­mer bat­tle­fields.

So save the bees, they might just save us all too.
