About Honey Bee
The honey bee is a widely distributed flying insect know for its ability to collect nectar from flowers and produce honey. Honey bees (right) are mustard yellow and brown. They have stocky bodies that are covered with many hairs to which pollen adheres. They are all eusocial flying insects that live in colonies of various sizes. They are only a small fraction of the 20,000 known species of bee.
They live in a hive which they build together as a family. The big family of honey bee is called a colony. There is only one queen bee in a hive. Her only job is to lay eggs. Every bee has a different body type and in this way, every worker bee, queen bee, or drone bee can be identified.
Characteristics of the honey bee:-
- The honey bee’s primary value is as a pollinator of crops.
- Bees have 5 eyes and 6 legs.
- Honey bees harvest nectar and pollen from flowering plants.
- Male bees in the hive are called drones and they do not have a stinger.
- Worker bees are females. They do all the different tasks needed to operate and maintain the hive.
- Honey bees live in large groups called colonies. An average beehive can hold around 50,000 bees.
