Research Paper On Honey Bees

Decent Essays
The bees that create honey were not natural inhabitants of North America. Europeans brought honey bees because of their ability to produce honey. They're actually the only insect that can produce food that humans can use for survival. It contains vitamins, minerals and enzymes that we can use to survive without needing any other foods. It even has water in it. The common colony of bees has between twenty thousand and sixty thousand worker bees. In all of those bees, there's only 1 queen. The colony's workers are all female too. They live about 6 weeks and perform all the work of the hive. While it seems like the females are all the hive has, that's not true. There are male worker bees called drones. The drones don't do any work at all though.
