Bees always collect nectar, if there are blooming melliferous plants that release nectar, and if the weather does not interfere with their flights (rain, strong wind, low temperature). However, in the spring, the arrival of fresh nectar (and pollen) can not fully satisfy the family’s need for brood rearing, and the missing bee’s food is […]

High concentration of sugars of honey ensures its long-term preservation. But bees have a method that reliably protects this product from spoilage during long-term storage: bees give the honey a sharply acid reaction (active acidity), and in acidic environments can not develop fungal spores, putrefactive and other bacteria. Two days after feeding the bees to […]

To collect and bring nectar to the hive of bees, as well as in other insects (Hymenoptera), feeding on nectar, in the course of evolution have developed very sophisticated organs: proboscis licking-sucking type that bees collect even tiny droplets of nectar and honey zobik – tank collecting nectar and bringing it to the hive. Proboscis. […]
