Is Honey made by other than bees?
No, only Bees produce honey.
*Facepalm* Bees don't eat honey....they make it.
Yes, honey bees can pollinate plants other than flowers. For example, in California, honey bees are absolutely essential to pollinate the almond trees.
one produces honey faster than the other and one can live longer than the other after it stings
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.
a nest or hive with up to 80000 other bees and produce much more honey than it needs for itself. That is why beekeepers can remove some of the surplus honey without it having an adverse effect on the colony.edgfhjk
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
because the honey bees are using all their energy throughout the day
hornets are a lot stronger then honey bees and they can sting more than once i think honey bees can only sting once then they die
'Killer bee' is a term from sensationalist movies and media reports. The correct name for them is Africanized honey bees, and the sting from an Africanized bee is no more dangerous than a sting from a European bee. Finally, to answer the question: Yes, they produce honey just like other honey bees.
The coffee plants flower and the bees collect this pollen and use it to make their honey. Honey made from this pollen has a distinctly different flavor than the clover honey sold at most grocery stores.
The common bumblebee is usually larger than the honey bee worker, and of comparable size to the honey bee drone.
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
well because they use the pollen in there honey.
'Killer bees' -- more properly called Africanized honey bees -- have no more or less effect on the ecosystem than do any other honey bees. They are the same size and have the same foraging habits and pollinate the same plants in the same way.
because they are larger than American bees and they are more aggressive
Not in the sense of being "poisonous", no. There are no poisonous honey bees. However, all honey bees have a chemical they produce when they die by stinging someone that causes their sting to be more painful than simply being punctured.
They don't. Worker honey bees live for around 6 weeks in summer and 6 months in winter. The queen can live for about 4 years.
Most of them except for worker honey bees. There are also species of stingless bees, although some of these can bite. Worker honey bees are one of the only bees that can only sting once because they are one of the only bees that evolved a barb on its stinger. Queen honey bees can sting multiple times.
No, they are probably Bumble Bees or they could be wasps. Digger bees (ground bees) will be different than honey bees...honey bees will be a colony consisting of one nest with thousands of bees...digger bees, may be a colony of dozens to hundreds, but it will be 1 nest to a bee, just many nests in the same area..do note, in arid areas honey bees are known to nest in the ground in old rodent… Read More
Australia has its own native bees, but they are much smaller than honey bees and do not produce anywhere near as much honey as the honey bee. Honey bees were brought to Australia around 200 years ago. The first European honeybees arrived in Australia aboard the ship 'Isabella' in 1822.
An Africanized honey bee is just a bee with attitude. Apart from that there are no significant physical differences between Africanized bees and Western honey bees -- in fact the only way to be sure which type of bee you have is DNA analysis. For this reason, Africanized bees are no more damaging to the environment than any other bees. In fact, all bees are essential to maintain the environment as we know it.
If there are only 200 to 300, they will be bumble bees. Honey bees live in much bigger colonies than that.
The bees are not special but the flowers are in the making of Manuka Honey. In the uncultavated wilderness the Manuka tree starts to flower and the bees are attracted to the flowers and so starts the adventure. This honey is special because the flower has chemicals that mix with the enzymes of the bee and are converted in the hive into a healling honey. The bees don't do anything different than they do in… Read More
No, there are not. The bumble bee and the honey bee are two separate species. Bumble bees are rounded and hairy. Their colour ranges between different shades of black and yellow stripes. Their large size makes them less productive than honey bees. Honey bees are slim and wasp-like. They have stripes of varying yellow and black shades, but they also have grey stripes along their abdomen. Because they are slim, they are faster and therefore… Read More
There are Africanized honey bees in Texas. The name 'killer bee' was given to Africanized honey bees by sensationalist media -- the sting of an Africanised honey bee is no worse than that of the Western honey bee. However, they are not as docile as the Western honey bee and sting more readily and in larger numbers.
Bees surprisingly do not taste like honey, i ate a bee one time (it was an accident) it was in ice cream, and it make the ice cream taste sweeter than it did before. but regardless, bees don't hold honey in them, so it wouldn't taste like honey
Yes, bumble bees are generally larger and are kind of fuzzy. Bumble bees do not lose their sting and die if they use it, as a honey bee will. (add) This is because bumble bees' stingers lack barbs, as honey bees do. This allows the bumble bees to sting repeatedly. The female bumble bee tends to be more aggresive than males(end). Honey Bees tend to be more aggresive
They originated more than 35 million years ago in south-east Asia and steadily spread into Europe. European settlers took honey bees with them when they travelled to other parts of the world and now there are European honey bees in every continent except Antarctica.
The purpose of the honey that a bee produces, is to feed itself and other occupants of the hive throughout the winter months when little or no nectar is available. The bees usually produce more than they can use which allows a beekeeper to harvest the excess.
They are larger than honey bees & fuzzy, but smaller than bumbles. Typically they will go in a hole in wood.
Honey made by bees that draw pollen from acacia flowers has a milder, more floral taste than regular (clover) honey. It is also much softer in consistency, with an almost glasslike appearance. Unlike clover honey, it does not crystallize.
No... honey bee's collect honey and are in a hive and are also smaller than bumble bees and not yellow and black... whereas bumble bee's collect pollen and make their own hives. hope u understand that a little more now
yes they do have hair, although it is thinner than other bees they do have small hairs which they use to catch vibrations near by.
The Queen honey bee has a longer abdomen than the other bees in the hive because of all the eggs she is carrying.
It depends on if the honey badger can overcome the bees. The killer bees will win, but you have got to take into consideration that the badger might be stronger than we think.
Honey bees live in a hive and a collection of hives (more than one) is called an apiary.
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
Yes they have !
Orchard bees may be preferred to honey bees in gardens. The insects in question (Osmia lignaria) have the appeal of being native to North America whereas honey bees (Apis spp) are European imports from colonial times. The orchard species also is focused upon the immediate garden and reluctant to defend itself with its far less potent stinger whereas the honey bee flies miles away from the home hive.
Honey bees (or honeybees) are a subset of bees which represent a far smaller fraction of bee diversity than most people suspect; of the approximately 20,000 known species of bees, there are only seven presently-recognized species with a total of 44 subspecies (Engel, 1999; historically, anywhere from six to eleven species have been recognized). These bees are the only living members of the tribe Apini, all in the genus Apis, and all of which produce… Read More
yes a wasp will sting you if they bump into you and if it is by your eye they will sting hard! Honey bees are nicer. Killer bees will attack just as wasps.

Presuming that you mean 500lbs of honey taken off a hive then it would probably represent 4 or 5 years honey production. But it could be more or less depending on the quality of summer weather and available forage for the bees. This is a difficult question for several other reasons: bees are eating honey themselves so some of what they had already made would be consumed in order for them to survive to make… Read More
Mead was made with barley, honey, spices, fruits, yeast, (it was closer to beer than wine!)
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.
Honey bees make honey to feed themselves throughout the winter months when no nectar is available to eat. They usually make much more than they need, so beekeepers are able to take some of their honey and bottle it for sale.
stay away from them is #1 Honey bees are a species of bees. The queen gets fed and only the queen lays eggs. The drones only mate with the queen. The queen mates with 8 drones and lays more than 1000 eggs per day. And honey bee's eat pollen.
If bees have moved into your vent, you'll have to decide if you want to kill them or remove them alive. If they are honey bees, call a beekeeper and have them removed. They'll be taken away and put in a new hive of their own. If they are anything other than honey bees, get one or two cans of wasp and hornet spray, the kind that shoots 15 to 20 feet. Spray the bees… Read More
It's a serious problem. We need honey bees to pollinate our crops. I don't think it's as important as global warming but we need to find the answer to that too.
No. Wild honey and farmed honey are basically the same. Depending upon the type of pollen the bees gather, honey will taste differently, but nutritionally it is the same.
