Honey Bee

The honeybee is clearly one of the most popular bees and belongs to the genus Apis, of which the only surviving group of bees in North America, Europe and Asia belongs to the genus Apis. Sources: 6

Honeybees are exposed to many types of predators, with some attacking the bees themselves and others consuming the wax and food stored in the hive. They are known for their ability to produce and store honey and to build complex and large nests of wax secreted by working bees. Sources: 5, 6

Important invertebrate enemies of adult bees include wasps, wasps and a species of insect called the bee wolf. Wasp wasps in a colony are known to attack bee colonies en masse and can wipe out a hive with one attack. Sources: 5

When larvae and pupae develop in the hive, Africanised honeybees in particular attack invaders to defend the colony. Working bees generally do not behave aggressively or defensively during foraging or swarm activity. They communicate with other working bees by transmitting information about their location, the location of food and other important information through dance. Sources: 7

Honeybees belong to the Apidae family, which includes bees, butterflies, moths, beeswax bees and many other bee species. Honeybees are considered useful because of their ability to pollinate many fruits, vegetables and ornamental flowers. They also produce honey, beeswax, pollen and royal jelly and pollinate many plants and animals. Adult bees sting, which makes them a nuisance to humans and animals and can cause serious health problems in humans. Sources: 3, 7

Apis mellifera is the beloved domesticated honeybee, known to beekeepers all over the world. It contains 24 different geographical breeds and subspecies that resemble different dog breeds. All honeybee species described are native to South and Southeast Asia, although some are now found all over the world. Recent discoveries include Apis albopictus, API apis, Api api and APi alpaca, all of which date back to the Middle East. Sources: 3

APs were imported to the USA in the mid-19th century and have become one of the most popular honeybee species in North America and Europe. Sources: 0

The cold winters in northern Europe forced bees to develop their hibernation strategy of clustering for heat and encouraged them to collect excess honey for winter food. These traits helped honeybees thrive in North America, but they did not fare as well when imported from South America. Brazilian scientists imported colonies of Apis mellifera scutellata from Tanzania at the end of the 19th century to breed productive honeybees adapted to tropical climates. Sources: 0

Scientifically, Apis mellifera is known for its honey, honeycombs and honeybees, as well as its fruits and pollen, but not for its pollination. Sources: 4

It is estimated that three-quarters of all flowering plants require pollinators to produce fruit, and many valuable plants benefit from their pollination. Seed plants produce fruit because pollinators such as bees and butterflies pollinate them by inadvertently transporting pollen between male and female flower parts. Sources: 1, 4

Honeybees are important pollinators because they can be cherished and cared for, and many beekeepers earn extra income by hiring colonies to pollinate. Professional recommendations vary in terms of the number of hives needed for good pollination, but some crops typically use one colony per hectare. The added value – the value that honeybees add to agriculture and the economy – is more than $9 billion annually in the United States. Sources: 1

Honeybees are highly social insects that live in large colonies with up to 60,000 members and have a total population of more than 1.5 million people. Sources: 2

A single queen lays eggs in the hive every 2,000 days, and working bees (sterile females) do all the work in and out of the hives. Sources: 2

They build the honeycombs, collect nectar and pollen, take care of the young, guard and guard the hive, make and feed the queen and drones with honey, build and clean the hives, feed and make honey and take care of their young. In late summer, the colony has a large number of colonies with high humidity and high temperatures. In autumn, the bees concentrate in the lower half of the bee nest and migrate to eat honey or pollen. Sources: 1, 2

European settlers who introduced insects from the Old World to North and South America, the honeybee has existed in the United States since the mid-19th century. Sources: 1

Apis mellifera ligustica) is the most popular honeybee in the United States, with a population of more than 1.5 million bees in North America, according to the American Beekeepers Association. Sources: 1

The honeybee (Apis mellifera L.) is one of the most famous insects in the world, and a large and sophisticated beekeeping industry provides valuable services in the areas of honey, beeswax and pollination. Honey bees are usually kept in artificial hives in the United States, but humans have plundered the honeybee colonies for centuries to get their larvae and beeswax.
