The biggest difference is that a bee flies and a grasshopper can only jump. Also, a bee has a stinger and a grasshopper does not.
Not necessarily. If the queen dies suddenly, the workers will build queen cells and transfer recently-laid eggs or very young larvae to them and will feed them on royal jelly. This will make them develop into new queens. They have about six days to do this as the egg hatches three days after it is laid, and all larvae are fed royal jelly for the first three days, but only queens are fed royal jelly after that time. If the queen had run out of sperm before dying and had become what is known as a 'drone layer' (unfertilized eggs develop into males) then this option is not available to the workers.
Workers bees are all females but the queen's pheromones suppress their ability to produce eggs. Once the queen has gone these pheromones disappear and workers can start to lay eggs. But the workers have never mated, so can only lay unfertilized eggs which will develop into males.
If the colony is unable to raise a replacement queen it is doomed to die out, though a beekeeper who spots the situation can produce a queen from another hive and introduce her to the queenless hive to save it.
ABBY? IS THAT YOU??? WELL IT IS ME VICTORIA OF VICKY!!
I think it may be a larder beetle - also known as Dermestes Lardarius.
Wasps are arthropods.
It's not a queen bee; queen bees don't fly. The insect is apprently attracted to an aroma coming from your door. It might perceive that a food source is near.
It is harvested in the similar manner as honey. But the process of producing it is slightly different.
First you have to remove the queen from the bee colony. Bees cannot live without their queen so they will try to make one therefore you have to introduce honey bee larvae (about a day old). You insert this larvae into speciall wooden cells. Bees will try to feed it to become new queen and they will fill the wooden cell with royal jelly (queens food). After about 2 days you can remove the wooden cells and scrape the jelly with the spoon. Then you may repeat the process.
If the sting was left behind you would easily see it, but it is very unlikely that it was because yellow jacket stings are not barbed so the insect can easily withdraw it.
You may think this is true but it is infact a false statement. The reason why is have you ever seen a stickbug, well if you have you probably know what I am talking about. They are usually green or brown, and they don't resemble beetles at all. So the answer is in fact No.
No. They all die in late summer but the queen survives in a state of semi-hibernation to restart a colony in the spring.
This is true of most social wasps. In some colonies, the queen dies and a new queen emerges in the spring. In solitary wasps, such as the mud-daubers, potter wasps, ichneumonids, and relatives, the adults generally die in colder climates and are replaced by newly hatched adults in the spring. In more tropical climates, the individual nature of the wasps allows them to hatch and mate throughout the year succumbing to death by predation, accident, or old age.
It's best to get your dog to a vet immediately. Some dogs can be highly allergic to wasp stings. You can also phone your vet and ask them what antihystamine you could give the dog and tell them the weight of the dog. Generally the stinger should be taken out, but that's no small feat because sometimes you can't see it if the color of the dog is dark.
they are blacky brown
Caterpillars do not turn into wasps or beetles. The only type of insect that caterpillars turn into are moths or butterflies.
The tuna is caught with huge nets by large fishing boats. The boats hunt the tuna through finding dolphins since the tuna run under the dolphins. They spread out nets and to round the fish up they set off small blasts in the water. This confuses the dolphins that are in the area and they begin to draw up the nets with big rollers on the ship. As they pull the net they collect the tuna and some of the dolphins. The dolphins try to jump out of the nets, get caught in the nets and drown, or are pulled in with the tuna. Eventually , the load of tuna is pulled in and placed in the hold of the ship. Some ships pack and can the tuna right there. Others take the tuna to packing houses. In recent years there have been efforts to stop the number of dolphin deaths in the process. Whether, this has really been done or not is debatable. This why some tuna companies cite on their product that the tuna is "dolphin safe".
Sea wasps are the main diet of flying fish.
Bee venom is a complex substance and, although it is acidic, it is not its acidity that causes the pain and swelling. These are caused by other components, mainly by the peptides apamin, which is a mild neurotoxin, and melittin, which damages the surrounding cells. Remember that the venom has been injected under the surface of the skin and deep into the tissues, so any chemical applied to the surface of the skin that is strong enough to have any neutralizing effect will probably do more harm than good.
There are many household remedies for bee stings, but it is doubtful if any of them have any real effect. Most probably rely on the placebo effect.
Assuming you know how bees communicate the presence of food to other bees, this bee (it is likely to be several different bees) is part of a hive where another bee found in that place in your kitchen. It went 'home' and told the other bees that there was food in this place. The others then go to try and collect some of this food; since there is obviously no more food there, they will hang around until it reappears again.
The brightly colored flowers of the lantana attract both bees and butterflies. Lantana grows quickly, producing blue, white, purple, yellow, lilac and orange flowers from summer to early fall.
An insect that can have a black body and yellow tail, flies, and stings may be a hornet. Many species of wasps and hornets match this description.
