Bees are useful insects. There are about 20.000 kinds of bees, but only
honeybees make honey.
Honeybees live in groups called colonies. Each colony has one female queen
Joint Construction bee, tens of thousands of worker bees, and a few hundred males, or drones.
of Text Honeybees live in hives. Inside their hive, the bees make honeycomb of wax. The
honeycomb is a kind of bee apartment building, full of six-sided rooms in which the
bees raise young and store food.
The queen bee lays thousands of eggs. Worm, like larvae, hatch from the
eggs. Each larva becomes a pupa, which looks partly like a larva and partly like an
adult bee. The pupa then becomes an adult bee. Worker bees feed the young, clean
and guard the hive, and fly to and from flowers. They collect tiny grains of pollen and
a sweet liquid called nectar for food. The pollen is food for young bees. Worker bees
use the nectar to make honey. Without bees bringing pollen from flower to
flower, many plants could not make seeds.
Queen bees and worker bees have stings. Workers use their stings to defend
themselves and their hive. A queen uses their stings to kill other queens.
Most other kinds of bees live alone instead of in a colony. These bees make
tunnels in wood or in the ground. The queen makes s her own nest.
People admire bees for their busy ways. People called beekeepers keep bees
for honey and for the beeswax the bees use to build their honeycombs.
