Bee with PollenThe pollen is stuffed into hairy receptacles on their hind legs called corbiculae. A single bee can carry about half her own body weight in pollen. Once back at the hive, the workers stuff the pollen into an awaiting cell.
Swarm of BeesIf a hive gets too crowded the queen will leave with about 60% of her workers to find a new home. The remaining workers will raise a new queen.
Frame of Capped HoneyOne of our beekeepers shows a frame full of capped honey. Bees "cap" (seal) the honey until they are ready to use it.
Hive loaded with HoneyBee's will often build comb on top of the frames. When the lid of the hive is removed the wax separates revealing the honey.
