  1. Small, helpful, peaceful friends!!!! Honey Bees By: AG

  2. Introduction • The scientific name is Arthropod • It is also called Hymenoptera • Honey bees make honey • Honey bees are peaceful , helpful workers • There are three different types of honey bees: queens workers, and drones

  3. How They Look • Small-like a finger nail • Yellow and black striped hairs • Six legs • A pair of antennas • A pair of clear, white wings • Five big black eyes • Three parts to their body-head, middle and back

  4. More About How The Look • Light • Three parts of legs: • the front pair is for grooming the head and for collecting pollen. • The middle pair is used for cleaning pollen off of other legs. • The back legs are called hind legs. Each hind leg has special name called a “pollen basket”

  5. Life span • A worker honey bee lives up to 20 to 340 days • Drones can live up to 20 to 90 days • Queens can live up to 4 and 5 years

  6. Habitat • Grasslands because imagine you and your friends sitting on a grassy field and having a lot of fun • Forest because bees like the trees and the shade. That’s how they can hang their hive. • Gardens because all of the flowers

  7. Food • Queens get royal jelly • Drones and workers get water, honey, bee bread , and nectar

  8. Prey • Predator to : • Lizard tails • Bee bread • Necter • Honey • Pollen Prey of (what eats bees) • Spiders • Frogs • Birds • Skunks • Bears

  9. Behavior • Peaceful workers • Working on making honey fast • Work hard • Mind their own buisness • Active during the day • Smart because they know when to sting

  10. Babies • The drones and queens have babies together • they put them in little cells and wait for them to hatch • It takes three days for a honey bee to hatch

  11. Physical Adaptations • Wings that help them fly • Yellow and black strips to blend in(or camouflage) • Honey bees have stingers to protect their honey and babies • A pair of antennae or antennas, on the honey bees head are used to smell,feel,and to send messages to other bees

  12. Behavioral Adaptations • How they make honey: they eat pollen and it stays in the stomach for 15 minutes then it slips out and then they eat it again for a half hour then spits it out then it makes honey!!!! • They fly to different flowers to get more pollen • Honey bees work very hard to make honey fast • Not nocturnal

  13. Physiological Adaptations • The stinger which helps them protect themselves • Hind legs which brushes off pollen on other legs • The hair on their body is charged with static electricity which attacks pollen grains.

  14. Funfacts • A honey bee has three parts of the body • A honey bee can fly 15 miles an hour • Honey bees are related to wasps
