Meet The Babies!

There are three stages in the development of a Bee. The first is the egg stage. The queen lays an egg in the bottom of each cell. The egg is centered in the cell and one end is stuck to the bottom. For a worker bee larvae this stage last three days. When the larvae emerge from the eggs she is fed royal jelly secreted from glands under the head of the nurse bee. Worker bee larvae day are fed Royal Jelly for three days, after which they are fed Bee Pollen and Honey. Then, after six days in the larval stage, the cell is capped with wax and the Bee spends the next 12 days in the pupal stage. After a total of 21 days the adult worker bee emerges!
