Biology & Behavior

Unlike the social wasps and hornets, honeybees form a semi-permanent colony. Nests are constructed of wax and most colonies are maintained by beekeepers. Honeybees feed on nectar and pollen, which they feed their young and use to produce products such as honey and beeswax. Honeybees may also collect water to cool the hive and plant sap to help seal cracks. Periodically, overcrowded colonies form swarms that leave the hive. The swarms rest temporarily on a tree or shrub while scout bees search for a nesting cavity. Although the swarms are very striking, the bees are very docile at this time.
