Marriage flight of honey bee(Queen)............

Post by sachin » Tue Jan 09, 2007 2:36 pm

She takes off from heive to remote flowers and her FANS(Drones)..
Follow her. Only one Lucky Hero can reach her and mate with her.
This is the only time when Queen mates with Drone in her life. :o

Interestingly she stores these sperms in her Spermatheca and uses them to deposite fertile eggs to produce Drone and Queen. She use them for her whole life span. :P

Oh... what honest bee.... with her Drone... :oops:

I dont know much about bees...I was stinged many times when I was a kid..I have some bee&wasp-phobia....
Only after the last tree has been cut down.
Only after the last river has been poisoned.
Only after the last fish has been caught.
Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.
