Do honey bees hibernate?
Unlike other species of bees, honey bees do not hibernate
No, no honey bee hibernates.
yes they do No they don't.
Some bumble bee queens hibernate over the winter. Honey bees do not hibernate.
Bees do not hibernate but remain active in winter, though they are unable to fly from the hive if it is too cold. For this reason they make honey as a food store for when they are unable to get nectar.
I am not sure easiest is necessarily the best word, but the reason we keep honey bees rather than any other variety of bee is for the honey. Although other bees, such as bumble bees, do make honey it is only in small amounts because they don't need to save stores for the winter (the queens hibernate, the others die). Honey bees on the other hand don't hibernate so need to build up a stock… Read More
No. Some bumble bees are solitary but even the largest social bumble bee colonies are quite small with up to a couple of hundred members -- compared to a honey bee colony at 20,000 to 60,000 members. Also, bumble bees only store enough honey for their immediate needs because over the winter the new queens hibernate and the rest of the colony dies. With honey bees they have to build up a large stock of… Read More
It depends on the type of bee. Honey bees are in a semi-dormant state and cluster together within the hive to keep warm.
Honey bees do not hibernate, but their metabolisms slow down. They eat less food and only leave the hive occasionally on sunny days for defecation flights.
Honey bees do not hibernate in the winter, but they are unable to fly out of the hive because it is too cold. They collect and store honey during the rest of the year so they have stocks of food to see them through the winter. Luckily for us, they store more honey than they need, and this surplus is what the beekeeper will take.
We can't keep bumble bees in the same way we keep honey bees. There are several reasons for this: Bumble bees tend to be either solitary or live in very small colonies, compared to the honey bee hive of around 60,000 bees in the summer. Honey bees make more honey than they need, and this is what we collect. Bumble bees do make honey, but only in very small amounts. At the most you would… Read More
honey hence the name honey bees Honey bees also produce bees wax by converting honey.
Some bumble bees hibernate, but honey bees don't. However, bees won't leave the hive if the air temperature is too low (below about 14oC/57oF), so if spring is late or cold this will delay the bees' emergence.
Honey bees don't hibernate as such. When temperatures drop below about 7 degrees Celsius, honey bees cluster together in their hive, (or nest if they are in the wild). The formation of the cluster is constantly changing so that the same bees aren't always on the outside of the cluster and getting cold. They are in a semi dormant state and can withstand temperatures below freezing provided that they have enough food and are dry… Read More
Honey bees don't hibernate as such. They spend the winter in whichever place they have spent the summer and cluster together to keep warm. If there are any warm sunny days during the winter they will come out of their hive and fly around on an 'evacuation' flight.
bees migrate not hibernate but it all depends on weather or not they survive!
the bears are the ones that eat the honey the honey bees make.they eat the honey bees
Honey bees do make honey if you are wondering
Honey bees are social insects and live in groups of a few tens of thousands, bumble bees live in small groups or even alone. Although both species make honey, only honey bees store a surplus for times when nectar is not available. Bumble bees make at most around a tablespoonful of honey. Honey bees remain active over winter, though they won't leave the hive if it is too cold or wet. Young bumble bee queens… Read More
Honey comes from Bees like Honey Bees.
Do honey bees produce WHAT? If the question is "honey", then yes, HONEY bees produce HONEY. If the question is NOT "honey", I'm afraid I can't help you.
Bumble bees do not produce honey. Honey bees produce honey. They are two different species.
Bees don't hibernate, but if the weather is too cold they can't fly out of the hive - and in winter there would probably be no flowers anyway. So, they collect a surplus of food when there is plenty available and store it for the winter. Honey can best be described as concentrated nectar.
No, honey bees are not the only bees that make honey. The bees in question (Apis spp) just happen to be the most famous of the world's natural honey-makers. Other apian examples include bumble and stingless bees.
Hibernation is a way of surviving the cold. Honey bees do not hibernate - they merely slow down. They form a cluster to keep warm and eat less food. On sunny days some of them may leave the hive for defecation flights. Bumble bees are different. Only the queen survives and overwinters, and she hibernates to survive the cold.
Bees use nectar from flowers to produce honey, the honey badger then feed on the honey that the bees produce.
They are called honey bees because they collect nectar to make honey.
Bumble bees do not have honey pots, the keep their honey in honey combs.
Honey bees get honey by sucking nectar out of plants. In the hive, this nectar is converted to honey. Different bees make different honey, so as you can imagine, there are a lot of different kinds of honey.
Of course honey bees are real! The honey has to be preduced somehow!
Some products you get from honey bees include Honey and Beeswax.
No, the more honey bees the more honey for us
No honey bees for the honey.
The bees fly of and get honey from the flower.
Bees eat honey
Only the worker bees (infertile females) produce honey.
Honey bees are afraid of smoke
Honey bees do not hibernate. However, they will be confined to the hive in cold weather because they cannot fly if the air temperature is below about 17C (54F). They will cluster together and vibrate their flight muscles to generate heat, keeping the centre of the cluster up to about 98F (37C). This takes energy, and is why the bees store honey: so they can feed when they can't fly out. Other bees, such as… Read More
Um.Dumb question but if u need 2 know honey bees aren't as visious as killer bees .therefore killer bees attack more.while,honey bees are humble and do what they do best make honey from flowers nectar
Honey only comes from honey bees (Apis Mellifera), not from any other type of bees.
Most bees make honey to feed themselves but only honey bees produce enough honey for a beekeeper to remove some of it in any great quantity.
honey bees eat the honey that they make they make the honey from the pollen they collect from flowers
