In the entomology, the term of brood id used to mention the embryo or egg, honey bee larvae and the pupa. The brood of honey bees are develops within a bee hive. In the man made removable frame hives, like Langstroth hives. Each and every frame which is mainly brood is called a brood frame. Usually brood frames have some of pollen and nectar or honey in the upper corner of the frames. The duration of brood season the bees may be reprocess the cells. These cells have emerged for additional brood or convert it into honey or pollen. The bees shows remarkable flexibility in the adapting cells to a best use suited for the hives survival.
As all insects the life of honey bee also begins with egg. To form a new colony the bee queen lays new eggs in the spring season. Bee queen lays eggs in the each cell inside a honey comb. The fertilized eggs always will be hatch into the female workers bee. The unfertilized eggs will become drones of honey bee male. The male forage food and they take care of the colony.
Each colony contains only one queen bee. Which have to mate with the drones at the early age and collects more than five million sperm. The queen of the honey just has one mating flight to mate with the drones. Queen has to store enough sperm during the mating flight to lay eggs throughout her full life. When a old queen become useless for laying eggs then a new queen become responsible for mating drone and also for laying eggs.
The eggs of honey bee can be measured. The size of honey bees eggs are 1 to 1.5 mm long its near about the half of the single of the grain of rice. Whenever a queen lays eggs, then she moves through the comb closely examining each cell before laying her egg. This procedure of the laying eggs of the honey bee just takes a few of seconds. The queen of honey bee is capable of lays eggs approx. 2,000 within a single day.
With the use of organized pattern a young queen lays her eggs. Honey bee queen placed each egg next to the others within a cell. A honey bee queen begins laying their eggs in the center of the cell frame. The workers can be placed honey or royal jelly and other foods for larvae on the edges. However as the queen an age, then she lays fewer eggs in a less organized pattern.
When the queen of the honey bees lay eggs. Then it became attached to the cell by a mucous stand. The duration of first stage of development, nervous system, the digested system and the outer corner are framed. After the three days the eggs will be hatched into larvae. The larvae will be fed by workers honey bees with honey, the precious royal jelly and the other liquids from plants. These of the honey bee larvae have many parts of body like; leg, eyes, antennae or wing. The larvae resemble the grain of rice with the small mouth. They will be growing into adults workers, queen and drones of the honey bees.
