Honey bee Hive in Phoenix

At peak season, there may be up to 60,000 Honey Bees in a hive. Honey Bees are "social bees" and need each other. One forager may make a hundred trips each day to collect nectar. Once they collect the nectar it must be transferred to another Bee so that the nectar may be thickened and converted to honey. This happens through the mixing that occurs in the bee's honey stomach (ingluvies). Honey Bee Hive in Phoenix. Photo by Stephanie Warner
