Did you know that...

  • ...about 90 U.S. crops depend on bees for pollination?
  • ...many hives are trucked from region to region for pollination purposes?

From Egg to Larva...

Bee Babies ... Larvae
Originally uploaded by chrissie2003
You can see here after the three days in the egg stage, the developing larva lays down in the bottom of the cell in the fetal position and like any other baby...GROWS!

When inspecting your hives, you always want to see lots of cells in this phase of development as well.

Soon these little gals will be capped over with beeswax for the final transition into an actual bee.

Signing off,

Bees Keeper
