The Biology Of Honey
It is believed that there's approximately
20 000 species of bees worldwide making
them the interest of bee keepers who
rely on them to cross pollinate.
By bees doing that it not only changes
the flowers species, but changes the
quality of the honey they produce.
Bees are also tracked by beekeepers
when other species of bees cross breed
with other bees and that allows them to
keep track of their habits from mating, to
the origin of where they come from.
Honey production is also tracked by bee
keepers since different species of bees
will also produce different types of
The origination of bees is mostly from
places in Europe, Africa and some parts
of Asia, but most from immigrants to the
U.S over the past centuries.
Antarctica is the only place where bees
were not found.
The evolutions of bees are derived from
wasps since they are cousins with the
exception that wasps aren't pollinating
insects and their ability to be organized
rivals, beetles, flies, and butterflies.
Bees are also categorized in two social
classes that are ideal for beekeepers to
know in managing bees and bee hives.
Most bees born are usually female, you
have few males The females will fight
each other for control of the hive and
colony. When most people hear about

the African bee they think killer bees
when in fact the Africanized honeybee is
not dangerous. It is a type of bee that is
the most popular with beekeepers and
the industry of beekeeping
The African honeybees are the most used
because they produce clover honey which
is the most used and produced honey.
Another reason why African bees are
popular is because they re not an
aggressive species that will readily attack
someone, but they will attack when
they're defending their hive.
Bees are generally docile, but during
picnics they can get annoying just
because their sense of smell directs them
since their eye sight is bad.
Their sense of smell is what helps them
find flowers they pollinate and sometimes
with the food people eat in this world the
smell can mimic flowers which can result
in them getting th i scents mixed up.

This is why you'll likely find bees
swarming around trash the food
wrappers that are left behind by people

flowers and plants.
