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?

They're Called "Brood"

In the hive 6

Here's a terrific shot of the later stage larvae along with what we call "capped brood."

So first, it's the egg. Then the "uncapped brood" as you can see here. Finally, the bees cap off the cells with a wax covering and the new bee develops through the pupae stage and into the fully developed BEE!

Good stuff here!

Signing off,
