In this image we have the making of a new queen cell. Honeybees can determine when they need to replace an old queen or the queen has left the hive and they need a new one. All hail the queen! Without the queen no baby bees in the near future and the hive will fail. Honeybees are an intricate insect community, nature is amazing!! Honey is a valuable commodity. Consider learning about becoming a beekeeper, find a club & learn as much as you can before you get your first hive. There are many support groups out there ready to assist. The rewards are delicious!!
