My reflection with rose and the bees

Did you know that on Thursday the 3rd of December a lady named Rose came to the year 5 and 6 extension class? We had an experience to look at bees in their beehive. Did you also know that I could see honey? Rose came in with some photos. Almost all the flowers had bees on it. I saw quite a few queen bees in the photos. She was telling us about why you shouldn’t weed kill your garden in the daytime you should use weed killer  when all the bees are sleeping.

There was also 1 drone bee and the rest were worker bees.
Rose was telling us about a Vespula germanica which is a german wasp. They kill a lot of bees. Bees are the only insects in the world that makes food for humans. There is 1 queen bee per hive. Before there is a queen bee the drone bees get a young female bee and they feed it royal jelly and that is how there is a queen bee. A Queen bee will fly around and all the drone bees will follow.

When the queen bees settle the drone bees will find a hole in a tree or a house and they will stay there. Bees can be found anywhere like your garden trees and more. We also had an experience to hold a honeycomb which was dried with grubs inside it.  The only 2 things that i wondered about the beehive was, why was there was only 1 drone bee and no queen bees? Please feel free to leave a comment. Thanks for reading.
