Honey Bees

Apis sp.

Description:

The honey bee is about 12 mm (1/2 inch) long and usually yellow, with 3 or 5 dark brown abdominal bands. They carry two pairs of wings and lack the constricted abdomen (wasp waist) of the wasp and hornet. Honey bees can sting, but are much less aggressive than wasps and hornets.

Habitat:

The hollies in the wildlife habitat garden are starting to bloom and they are covered with honey bees. This garden is a pesticide free zone.
