The Honey Bee

Even though they look like their very painful stinging relatives, honey bees are quite unique, in the sense that they have the ability to produce enough honey - the only known food substance that does not spoil - in a large quantity. Large enough to be harvested by us humans for our own consumption. Thus the name honey bee.

And like a lot of animals and insects that are found all over the world, honey bees also differ from one another basing on a lot of factors.

These factors such as environment or the area they are located, can mean the difference on the type of honey bee that is on that particular locale. Beekeepers and other bee experts have in time gathered enough relevant information to categorize different honey bee genetic stocks that differ in purpose on whether it may be bee production, pollination or the honey crop.
