    1. Yes bees do die; a worker will fly so much during her life that her wings become tattered and she can not return to her hive.

    1. The food for honey bees is the nectar and honey. The bees protect the queen once they are born because they know she is important in the hive.

    1. Honey bees are going to flowers to gather pollen for their hive, but in return they end up spreading that pollen which provides pollination for us. Bees make honey for themselves and as beekeepers we remove some for us to enjoy, but it also makes room for the bees to make more honey.

    1. A queen can lay 2,000 eggs a day which in return can equal up to 2,000 bees hatching every day. A hive knows if they lost their queen because her special smell isn't found in the hive.

  12. Hi there! I'm a veterinarian and hobbyist beekeeper with Iowa State University and am interested in using your photo of drawing out comb on black foundation from your May 1, 2016 blog post in an educational module I'm developing for U.S. veterinarians on honey bee health. I'm writing to see if you would give me permission to use your photo and if so, how you would like to be credited. If this is something you would consider, please email me at kobbink@iastate.edu and I'll provide more details. Thanks for your time!
