Nature – Honeybees

Honeybees are social creatures living in close proximity to each other. Sanitation squads are responsible for keeping the hive clean.

Nature Nugget – Bumblebee Social Order

Social bees live in colonies and consist of three castes: the queen who produces the eggs, thousands of workers (sexually undeveloped females), and a few hundred drones (fertile males). There are three groups of social bees: the honeybees, stingless bees, and bumblebees. Found mainly in temperate climates, there are around 300 species of bumblebees worldwide.
