Bee Life Cycle
Inside the hive s3.thingpic.com
Bees live in colonies (groups) that contain the queen bee, the worker bees and the drones. The queen bee is the mum of the hive and lays eggs, worker bees look after the hive and collect nectar to make honey. Drones are the dads of the hive. s2.thingpic.com
Female bees create tiny cells for their eggs using the bee wax they make. They are hexagon shaped so that they all fit together without wasting space (tessellate). s2.thingpic.com
When a honey bee finds flowers it does a special dance to show other bees where to find it. s3.thingpic.com
Bees are very important. They carry pollen from flower to flower which helps more plants to grow. This is called pollination and without it our flowers and plants would not grow. s4.thingpic.com
