Honey Bee

Transcript: Honey Bee By Dejah Anderson • They can pollinate their own food • Most bees fly 12 ½ miles How does it eat? Bees drink by lapping at it with their tongue and drawing it up with their proboscis. Woodlands, meadows, orchards, gardens, or any place with an abundance of flower bearing plants Asexual or sexual? The structural adaptations of are honeybees are that they have wings to fly, a stinger to defend from predators and hazards, fur on their bodies to pick up nectar to feed themselves and make honey and antennae that is used for communication. What does it eat? What type of feeder is it? Special Features To collect nectar to make honey. In doing so they pollinate flowers and plants, ensuring the reproduction of these plants Kingdom: Phylum: Class: Order: Family: Genus: Species: What other plants and animals are found there? Where in the world is this biome/organism found? Structural/Physiological adaptations your organism has to survive in its environment? Anything with a Hive top. Symmetry? What Biome is it found in? What is the Climate? Other plants and animals: mocking birds, King Birds, spiders, bee wolves. Some plants are herbs (Borage, rose berry), shrubs (lavenders, Elder berries) , trees (Maples, fruit trees) What is your organism's niche? Anywhere but extreme cold all year round Bilateral What type of symbiotic relation- ship does your organism have with another organism? Arthropoda Classifications: Bibliography What is your organism’s habitat within the biome? Nectar, Honey http://www.fcps.edu/islandcreekes/ecology/honey_bee.htm https://insects.tamu.edu/fieldguide/cimg341.html Tundra, taiga, desert, rain forest , temperate, tropical 54 °F- 122 °F Mutualistic because the bees get nectar from the flower which they make into food, benefiting the bees. The bees collect pollen on their bodies and the pollen rubs off on other plants causing reproduction. Insecta Hymenptera Apidae Apis Mellifera They Reproduce Both Ways: The Queen bee mates at an early age and collects more than 5 million sperm. A honey bee queen has one mating flight and stores enough sperm during the mating flight to lay eggs throughout her life. Animalia

Transcript: Why are we losing so many colonies? Commercial bees are often moved from one area to another (often to a whole other state) The constant climate change causes the bees to become confused, weak, and stressed Intensive Agriculture By Keith Houghtaling A class of neuro-active insecticides chemically similar to nicotine Are Systemic pesticides meaning they are embedded into the seed itself instead of sprayed on Messes with the Honey bee's homing ability, making it so they can't find there way home For the first time, honeybee deaths during the summer months surpassed those of winter deaths at around 30% lost in summer 1/3 of the food you eat is a direct or indirect result of bee Honey bees are responsible for over 15 billion dollars worth of agriculture each year in the US and 265 billion worldwide. US commercial bee keepers on average lost over 40% of there colones First globally recognized in 2006 when honey bee losses jumped from 5% and 10% to over 30% This phenomenon is seen as the sudden disappearance of the majority of bees in a colony, only leaving a queen, plenty of food and immature bees behind Malnutrition Neonicotinoids Why you should care Mites/Viruses Intensive Agriculture Within a 12 month period What is happening? Mono-cropping is a process used by farmers who grow only a few crops on a massive scale Honey bees under these farmers are used as pollinators throughout the year for these products Leaving Honey bees with a lack of diversity in there diet which makes them sick or weak over time What is happening to our bees? Death Of The Honey Bee Pesticides Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) Mites/Viruses From April 2014 to April 2015 4 main causes of CCD Pesticides Malnutrition There are a few mites that afflicted the honey bee, but the Varroa is the most dangerous Varroa destructor is a external parasitic mite that attaches to the body of the bee and weakens the bee by sucking hemolymph also leaving behind dozens of possible RNA viruses such as deformed wing virus So Worldwide bee keepers have seen an annual losses from 30% to 90% A colony is made up of 20,000 to 80,000 bees

Bees kept in worker cells and fed honey and pollen become worker bees Drone bees grow larger and require more food. As drones age pollen becomes predominate in their diet Bees In the Hive * Usually mates 6 - 10 days after fully maturing * She may go on several mating flights mating with several bees on each flight. *She will mate until she has a full supply. * A queen lays 2.500 eggs perday *Once a queens supply has depleted she comes a done layer Corinne Idler http://www.wasp-control.co.uk/bee-removal.html Without Bees Labor in the hive is divided according to a bees age. *Bees less than two weeks become involved in cleaning cells and feeding larve *Older house bees work with honey, pollen, wax, and propolis * Nectar collecting bees are met by the entrance and deliver pollen * at 12-15 days bees wax glands become functional and comb building is possible * At 3 week bees become foragers, gathering pollen, nectar, and propolis for the hive * Drone bees have the shortest life span of 8 weeks. They spend their time looking for virgin queens to mate with. Life and Importance Of Bees http://www.beesource.com/resources/usda/honey-bee-life-history/ Egg- 3 Days Then Hatching occurs. Larva & Prepupa- 8 Days they will moult 4 times before being capped and molting a 5th time. the Preupa then begins to spin its cocoon. Pupa- 9 days the bee becomes a mature bee in these nine days. The Queen * Play a large part in the pollination of eco systems * Pollination is not only done by bees but also wind * Without bees much of todays eco system would not exist. *Pollination is the transfer of pollen from a male plant to a female plant * Their efficiency is due to the large number of bees in the world *Bees benefit from pollination because because use the flowers nectar as food GENERAL RULES TO DETECT IF PLANT IS POLLINATED BY A BEE: * flowers usually have nectar tubes not more than 2 cm long *daytime pollinated flowers scent is less srong *often bloom during daytime * different colors of flowers but rarely red ** Plants pollinated by insects are called "entomophilous" Early stages of a bee Wild Hive Inside A Hive End Clip...

Transcript: ✳✱* Consumers are now more aware of where they are purchasing their food. and most try to opt for locally produced. We pride ourselves on ethical farming as our end goal is to increase the bee population What We Know What we want from you? Most honey is imported as we consume more than we produce with current political conditions. Now is the time we need invest in producing our own products Bee's Wax information Here Project It is well-known that bumblebees are great pollinators, and therefore have a key role in producing much of the food that we eat. Through the pollination of many commercial crops such as tomatoes, peas, apples and strawberries, insects are estimated to contribute over £400 million per annum to the UK economy and €14.2 billion per annum to the EU economy. Honey Bee 2 x hives will solely be for breeding – increase the population 2 x Hives will be producing the honey we sell each will produce @ 50lbs of honey every 3 months they do produce more In alignment with safe farming practices – they do produce more... but they need some for themselves. Each expecting to be worth £12,500 Zz.....zz Urban nature is a project to increase the rapidly declining bee population. There are numerous report of some Bee species going extinct. Changes in agricultural techniques have meant that there are far fewer wildflowers in the landscape than there used to be, meaning that many of our bumblebee species are struggling to survive. Why do we need Bee's..? Urban Nature Accredited Courses, Teaching agricultural skills, Bee keeping All aspects of Harvesting Honey and Bee's wax Health and safety Marketing and selling 100% organic products. Business Skills Transferable skills Various workshops producing with beeswax. incl Soap, Candles, lip balm , body butter add logo here Locally Produced We already have a record of obtaining local spaces and growing food, Bee Keeping and producing Honey in Various location in and around the City. We would like to insert: 4X Beehives @ the back of your premises Grow small orchard in the which will produce a number of fruits If bumblebee and other insect pollinator declines continue, the extremely high cost of pollinating these plants by other means could significantly increase the cost of fruit and vegetables.

Honey Bee

Transcript: Since 2006, honey bees have been suffering from Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). 1/3 of the honey bee population has disappeared. Scientists do not know the exact cause of CCD, but they suspect it is due to pesticide exposure, inadequate amounts of safe food (the plants have been treated with pesticides) and diseases. We depend on bees to pollinate our flowers, therefore it is important that we keep the population from declining. Wax Glands BEEbliography The worker bees have a sharp stinger at the base of their back. Because the workers are often away from the nest collecting pollen, their stinger is used if the bee is in danger. Although the bees die if they have to use it, their stinger makes predators likely to stay away from them. Honey bees have 170 odour receptors. This assists them in finding flowers to pollinate. Smell sensors help a bee determine if a flower has pollen or nectar. Honey Bee (Scientific Name: Apis Mellifera) by Maureen Cooper Background Information When a honeybee finds an abundant food source, she will return to the nest and tell her fellow workers about it. She uses a dance in order to communicate the location of the flower to the other bees. The dance tells the other bees how far the food source is from the nest and where it is in relation to the sun. Colour Distribution/Description Behavioral Adaptations Bee Dance Odour Receptors Honey bees live in large colonies. No group of bee can survive on it's own. The queen cannot survive without the workers and drones, the workers cannot survive without the queen, and so on. Because each type of bee plays an important role in the maintenance of the colony (whether it is by providing food, reproducing, cleaning the nest, making wax to produce the hive, etc.), they all stick together in order to survive. When bees are looking for a new site to nest, they travel in a pack (swarm) to protect themselves. In the winter, they stay together in the hive to keep each other warm and feed off of collected nectar (honey). Honey bees contain eight glands that produce wax. The wax is secreted as a liquid and hardens once it reaches the surface of the bees bodies. The worker bees collect the wax with their legs and chew it until it is soft. Then, they shape the wax into hexagons. These shapes fit together in order to form the walls of the hive and to store honey. The Stinger An Endangered Species The worker bees are most active in the spring and summer. This is due to the large number of matured flowers (with pollen) during these months as opposed to the cooler portion of the year when food sources are scarce. The bees work hard during the warm months to collect food for the winter, when they will live off of these stores. Structural Adaptations Worker honeybees have hair on their backs, abdomens and legs. The hair is used to facilitate pollen collection. When the bee lands on a flower, the hairs comb through the pollen and collect it. This makes the bee's job easier and therefore more efficient. Saving the Bees The bees have varying stripes of dark and light colours across their backs. These bright colours act as a warning against potential predators of the bees ability to sting. The honey bee has a Nasanov gland that produces an 'attractant' pheromone. The pheromone is a chemical messenger that attracts members of the colony that might have gotten lost. This pheromone helps the bee colony stay together in order to survive. Living in Colonies Hairy Bodies Communication Pheromones Pollen and Nectar Collecting Season Lifespan of honey bees depends on the type: Queens: If the queen lives in a healthy colony (abundance of pollen consumption, healthy worker bees to provide food, etc), they may live for several years (2-3 years on average). Drones: Drones die shortly after mating with the queen (their role in the colony). They live for 2 weeks on average. Worker Bees: Average lifespan in 5-7 weeks depending on weather conditions, food availability, etc. Lifespan Physiological Adaptations Native to Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Over time, the honey bee has spread and now breed naturally all over the world. Three types of bees in a colony: Queen bee (one per colony - only reproductive female) Worker bees (thousands per colony - infertile females) Drones (fertile males) The drones and the Queen reproduce while the workers clean the hive and leave the nest to pollinate and collect nectar. Bee keeping has become very popular in order to stop the decline of the colony. Aside from the fact that bees play a vital role in the survival of an ecosystem by pollinating flowers, they also produce honey. Honey is the only food created by insects that humans can eat. Honey has medicinal properties, vitamins, enzymes and is a natural sweetener.
