Kinds of Bees: 10 Broad Sorts of Honey Bee Worldwide.

Different kinds of Bees

Different kinds of Bees: We are most acquainted with one family of bee, Apidae, which incorporates honey and bumblebees. Honey bees, of course, produce or make honey; these are social bees that board colonies of fifty thousand to 60,000 workers (female bees), 300 drones (male bees), and typically one queen.

Honey colonies are terribly complicated in terms of behavior and overall function; these bees behave for the survival of the colony, and not for individual survival. They are different than any other insects.

Honey Bees

Honey bees are involved in the pollination of not just honey, but many other vegetables, fruit & crops, and they’re really important to the production of these crops.  Honey bees nest several times with tens of thousands of additional worker bees, gathering honey and bringing it back to honeycombs in their hive.

There are 10 broad sorts of honey bee worldwide, and one hybrid selection, the Apis mellifera, or “killer bee.” The EU honey is most typically unbroken by beekeepers, for the aim of harvest honey and bee byproducts. But other scholars say, Apis mellifera is the scientific name of the Western honey bee.

Species of bees

This species is used by beekeepers worldwide and is not a hybrid per se. It’s NOT always the so-called killer bee neither. This is a colloquial name for a hybrid between an African and a European subspecies (“race”), which spread from Brazil up to the Southern states of the US.

Africanized Bees

A better name, however, would be Africanized bees, as killer bees suggest they attack to kill, what they don’t. There are other SPECIES of honey bees, nine of them living in Asia, and Apis mellifera naturally living in Europe and Africa. The latter has been distributed worldwide for beekeeping.
