Queen Bee

Image:  Queen Bee

Detailed Description

The bee marked in yellow is this hive's queen. There is usually only one queen in a hive, which the worker honeybees feed, follow, and protect.

Society needs healthy bees and other insects to pollinate crops, but land use changes that decrease flower abundance can affect bee health and pollination services. Midwestern states are losing native grasslands and conservation lands that historically have provided abundant flowers for pollinators.
