Here is a Honey Bee stuffed animal, and some facts and information about Honey Bees. We carry a bumblebee night light from Ibis and Orchid. The honey bee stuffed animal is from Wild Republic.
Bees belong to the order Hymenoptera. These are social insects that live in colonies. In each colony there is a queen, female workers and males called drones.
Honey bees are the only ones to store honey. Each bee comes equipped with a stinger and uses it to defend the hive.
The queen's lifespan is generally two to three years; she can live up to five years. Male drones die soon after mating with the queen.
Colony Collapse Disorder, parasitic mites, diseases and other stressors continue to take a devastating toll on U.S. honey bee populations. Colony Collapse Disorder, which was noticed in 2006, is still a mystery.
