Honey Bee (Apis mellifera)

A very elegant creature. Honey Bees are highly industrious and the proof of their efficiency is in the sweet honey they make. A colony of bees consist of a mated queen, drones and worker bees. They work together as a cohesive unit to produce wax, honey and royal jelly, and to gather pollen, propolis and water. This is all done to produce more bees but for what purpose?

Honey Bees regulate our environment by pollinating all fruiting plants. They're great at regulating their own space too. They cool, heat, clean and organize the hive. They all work together to raise young bees (Brood), a true example of a community. They live in harmony with their environment, and the greatest risk to bees is the destruction of habitat.

Honey bees range from mild to aggressive, however they almost never sting before bumping into you as a warning.
