Discover the remarkable and truly fascinating life of the Honey Bee with these fantastic lifelike figurines from Safari Ltd.
Hardworking honeybees rapidly transition through their life cycle, with only 21 days from egg to adulthood. Bees in the larval stage are fed by workers, and once they go through metamorphosis to become adults, they join the rest of the hive in the search for nectar and pollen.
Honeybee larvae and pupae, like those of many other insects, are almost unrecognizable compared to adult bees. In the average Honey Bee hive, there is 1 queen, hundreds of male drones and thousands of female workers.
