Reproduction and development of bees

Growth and development of the bee family under favorable conditions of the environment (plenty of food, proper temperature, etc.) is provided by all three forms of individuals: the uterus, working bees and drones, but their

Influence of various conditions on the development of bee species

Heavenly and earthly bee guides

Since bees are guided not only by the sun and the polarized light depending on it, coming from the sky, but also by terrestrial signposts, I would like to know which of these two means

The annual cycle of development and life of a bee family

The annual cycle of development and life of a bee family can be divided into the following periods: A) the period of spring development of the bee family, B) the period of reproduction of families

External structure of the bee’s body

Outer cover. Bees, like all insects, do not have an internal bone skeleton, which in vertebrate animals represents the basis and support of the whole body. Instead of the internal skeleton, bees have a hard
