Czego nie wiesz o pszczołach
I am always amazed at the number of people who are fascinated by bees. When I meet people, they often ask me a lot of questions to find intelligent answers. How do bees make honey? Why do bees just pack up and leave? Why are bees disappearing so quickly? Are bees really that dangerous? How do you make honey money? I try to answer all of these questions as best I can, while also trying to educate others about bees.
Why are Bees so fascinating?
People often call me asking for help to remove bees from their property. They may claim they have a nest or an hive in their backyard. The picture I get might be of a wood-framed hive. They are referring to a large group of bees that have swarmed in a tree on their property. I am able to share my knowledge with them and let them know the difference. Most are amazed at the vast differences between a nest, a swarm and a honeybee hive.
A swarm is a group of bees that has decided to leave their hive and set up shop in random places. They will often set up in trees or on the roof of houses. This cluster is often made up of more than 20 000 bees and one queen. A bee swarm is caused by an overcrowded colony. A new queen will be born and the old queen will depart just before the new queen emerges from the cell. She will take half the worker bees with her. They will cluster together on a tree branch for several days, until they find a suitable spot. This is what honeybees do tirelessly for every day, building hives inside.
The hive is the container or casing where the bees live. There are many man-made hives that use removable frames to allow easy access to honeycombs. You may have seen them in fields or orchards that have an apiary. They are usually made of wood and will be painted white. Bee hives are designed to house a colony of bees. Bees don’t need to work hard before they do their job. They have a social structure and each person is given a specific responsibility. They fly to new locations or set up a new hive. Within an hour of entering the hive the worker bees will fly to new locations and begin foraging for nectar and pollen.
What is a Bee Pollen Basket?
Wouldn’t it be nice to have something that was carefully placed in a nutrient-building location? Imagine if your vitamins were carefully crafted and nurtured. Because it is attached to the bee, the basket provides this benefit and is carefully placed where it is needed. This shows that bees can be a great help in your health!
What is a Bee Pollen Basket and how does it work? The term basket is used to describe the way the bees transport pollen back home to the hive. This basket is attached to their legs. The basket is surrounded with tiny hairs that stick the pollen to it and is collected for safe transport. These tiny pollen baskets are small concave areas that hold the pollen just below the tibia or lower leg. These baskets are typically found on the Queen Bee, the Bumblebee and the worker bees.
What is the significance of all this? These baskets hold what is vital for your health in terms of the amount and quality of the pollen being stored. These tiny concave areas can hold up to one million grains. This is a lot of pollen if you think about how much we need in one capsule. It’s not surprising that something so good for your health has taken a lot of effort from such a tiny creature.
Is My Pollen Clean When I Get It? The pollen is clean when it reaches you. In fact, most insects have cleaners on the antenna and legs. Each bee has a pair cleaners on its front leg. This ensures that the pollen basket is pure and clean. The bee’s leg is equipped with a pair of cleaners that remove any debris. This ensures that you get 100% nutrients. This basket is the best!
You can also clean pollen with a seed-cleaning machine, but it is very difficult to track the source of bees’ pollen. It was thought that pollen could be contaminated before it reaches the person who is using it. However, research has shown that honey is a wonderful food for health. Because honey is rich in vitamins and minerals, it has properties that make it resistant to mold and fungi. It is not surprising that pollen from honey, which contains all these nutrients, is free of contaminants.
They are tiny, but they are very intelligent. They pollinate plants of all types and provide us with most of the food we eat. Protecting plants from pests. Delicious honey for our consumption.
Organising themselves into sophisticated colonies, and formulating ways to reach group decisions that are in the best interests of their colony. To communicate with other bees, they use the “waggle dance”. They also have furniture in their tiny bee homes and wear suits to work. Each bee is assigned a different job at the corporation that employs all of them. It must be true, as I saw it in a movie.
Scientists have discovered yet another use for this tiny insect. Scientists discovered that bees have a keen sense of smell and can pick up scents in a way that canines cannot. Scientists are working to find ways for bees or wasps that can detect trace amounts of drugs, screen luggage at airports, and hunt down hidden explosives. The wasps are 74x more sensitive than the mechanical devices and 94x more sensitive to plant odors.
It is possible that they could be trained to kill anthrax spores and other biological threats. They could be used to detect landmines that kill thousands of children every year in many parts of the globe. You can release thousands of bees into a field and they will swarm towards hidden devices. This will create a bee-blanket which pinpoints the exact location of the mine so it can be destroyed.
If you are wondering how to train a bee, they are trained the same way as Pavlovian dogs. The bees learn to associate a particular scent with a sweet reward so that when they sense the scent, they will swarm towards it. You will find the loot if you follow the bees.
I thought airport security lines couldn’t get more stressful or invasive. I was wrong. Wait until passengers are forced into the bumblebee trap. Although security officials claim they are only looking at the insects to detect bombs in luggage and at the post office, you can be sure that some NSA official is thinking about it after the recent concerns about shoe bombs or toothpaste explosives. This story is my favorite part. Go get your children and tell them that the National Security Administration has been training bees to hunt down terrorists. It’s a crazy world!
