Honey Bee

Transcript: Honey bees can live in tropical climates and like to live in heavily forested areas but they also prefer flower gardens, woodlands, orchards, meadows, and other places where flowering plants are abundant. What may be weird about a honey bees behavior is that it can maintain a close relationship with humans Honey bees live all around the world not just on one state or contenent Even though honey bees may sting that doesn't mean they aren't beneficial to humans. Honey bees help pollinate flowers and if we didn't have honey bees to pollinate, flowers all around the world would die giving us more carbonated air. Honey bees live in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Virginia, on North America and all across the world, and there are different honey bees on each continent. A honey bee is a herbivore cause it eats the nectar/ pollen out of flowers by sucking it out A honey bees life cycle is one of complete metamorphosis The honey bee is the state insect for many states like: Georgia Kansas Arkansas Louisiana Maine Mississippi Missouri Nebraska New Jersey North Carolina Oklahoma South Dakota Tennessee Utah Vermont West Virginia And Wisconsin :) Apis Mellifera The bee, found in Ancient Near East and Aegean cultures, was believed to be the sacred insect that bridged the natural world to the underworld. Appearing in tomb decorations, Mycenaean tholos tombs were even shaped as beehives. Honey bees are also seen in Mayan cultures, an example being the Ah-Muzen-Cab, the Bee God, found in Mayan ruins, likely designating honey-producing cities (who prized honey as food of the gods).

Transcript: Honey Bees- Reasons for their decline Theory 5: reduced amount of boidiversity Theory 1: Urbanisation Honey bees pollenate flowers with brightly coloured petals and attractive scents. With less biodiversity there will be less of a variety of flowers to choose from meaning that the bees will not be as much encoragement, meaning less honey (food), meaning there would be a shortage of food for the bees. Theory 2: Deforestation Deforestation leads to a reduced amount of suitable habitat for the bees to live and thrive in. There will be less plants to pollenate meaning less honey can be produed, which means less food is available to the honey bees. This could lead to famine for the honey bees, which would dramatically reduced their numbers. Honey Bees can be found all over the world. They can like in hot climates like in asia, and colder climates like norway, however duing the coldest periods in countrys like norway they are forced to migrate to somewhere warmer to survive. This migration can be a very dangerous journey loosing many on the way. Type:Bug Diet:Herbivore Average life span in the wild:Up to 5 years Size:0.4 to 0.6 in (5 to 15 mm) (Workers) Group name:Colony or Swarm Size relative to a paper clip: Theory 4: Migration New methods may be a large contributing factor to the decline of the amount of honey bees we have today. The main reason for this is because of the various methods of farming that use pesticides. These pesticides are developed to kill any insects that comes into contact with the crops that the farmer ha sprayed. As much it is useful to have these pesticides to improve the standared of produce, it is the cause of too many animals deaths, and also has a knock on effect on the food chain. Theory 3: Farming Urbanisation causes an increase in the amount of contact between humans and bees. This can lead to death due to humans trying to keep them away. Urbanisation causes a loss of habitats meaning that the honey bees will struggle to find a decent environment to thrive in. Facts...

Transcript: Worker Bee-conomics Honey bees collect nectar and convert it to honey. The majority of honey bee larvae eat honey, but larvae that are chosen to become future queens will be fed with royal jelly. Royal jelly is a white secretion produced by young, female worker bees. It is comprised of pollen and chemicals from the glands of worker bees. Strictly male Their sole job is to mate with the queen at about 2-8 weeks of age. After mating with the queen the drone dies In early fall, all the drones that have not mated are kicked out of the hive.(This preserves precious food resources so the colony can survive through the winter. What they eat? Strictly female Largest population of the hive. Responsible for caring for young,food storage,cleaning,foraging,protection,tending to the queen, and regulating the temperature of the hive. Makes wax to build the hive. Livesfor 5-8 weeks in the summer.They can live longer during the winter where there 's less "work" to be done. A honey bee hive is made of wax.This wax is sculpted into perfect hexagonal cells. The cells provide storage for larvae,pollen and honey. The hive is like a giant nursury,home, and factory. Colony Collapse Disorder:- Drone Strictly female The sole fertilised reproducer of the hive. Lays appx, 1,500 to 2,000 eggs per day during the summer. Comes from a special,larger cell.The larval queem is fed exclusively royal jelly. Generally there is only asingle queen per colony. Approximately 1/3 of all the food we eat is pollinated by honey bees. This represents $15 billion dollars of produce in the U.S annually. If the honey bees die off,the price of all their products will rise.For example,the price of almond went up from $1.50 per pound in 1983 to $3.50 per pound in 2005.In the next 20 years the cost could double or triple. Type of Bees The honey bee is one of the main pollinators in the animal kingdom. The honey bee pollinates an estimated 30% of the food eaten the U.S. Honey bees were brought to the Americas in the 1620's from asia and africa. They are astounding insects whose way of life fascinates scientists even to this day. There are around 25,000 known species of bee worldwide (about 4000 species in the US, and over 250 species in Britain)....and there are probably more to be discovered! The hive Pesticides:- Honey Bee Symptoms of CCD include sudden dissapearnce of the majority of the bees yet honey and the queen remains. CCD was first recognised in the fall 2006 There is no single cause of CCD but researchers think that stress is the main factor which drives themout of the hive. CCD and the general beepopulation decline is currently happening. Honey Bee Queen Using pesticides on plants kills insects-the bad insects as well as the good insects. When the honey bee collects pollen or nectar,she might could be contaminated with the pesticide which she could carry back to the hive; killing her nest mates. Neonicotinds are the chemicals which damage the bees ability to navigate.
