Bees like all insects have three body parts. The head, thorax and abdomen. The head has sensory organs, like the eyes and antennae and the mouth for collecting food. The thorax is where the legs and wings attach. In most insects 6 legs and 2 pairs of wings are attached to the thorax. The abdomen contains internal organs like the digestive tract and reproductive organs. These 3 body parts are common to all insects and are in fact how we categorize them as insects!
