The simple bee* – doing what it does
After collecting nectar and pollen from many different flowers, bees fly back to their colonies. They regurgitate nectar, mixed with enzymes, and expose the mixture to the air for several days, creating honey. This honey is used to feed the colony. Pollen is mixed with nectar to form a protein-rich substance called beebread. Beebread is primarily used to feed young developing bees, called larvae.
Bumblebees are robust, large in girth, have more hairs on their body and are colored with yellow, orange and black. … Honeybees are slender in body appearance, have fewer hairs and wings that are more translucent. The tip of their abdomen is more pointed.
