Africanized bees make better shoppers.Part of the secret to world domination--in the honeybee honeybee
Broadly, any bee that makes honey (any insect of the tribe Apini, family Apidae); more strictly, one of the four species constituting the genus Apis. The term is usually applied to one species, the domestic honeybee (A. realm, at least--may involve collecting more pollen than nectar.
Jennifer H. Fewell and Jon F. Harrison of Arizona State University Arizona State University, at Tempe; coeducational; opened 1886 as a normal school, became 1925 Tempe State Teachers College, renamed 1945 Arizona State College at Tempe. Its present name was adopted in 1958. in Tempe were studying local wild honeybees when Africanized bees buzzed in during 1005. Chronicling the rapid takeover, Fewell and Harrison noted that Africanized bees swarmed to start new colonies two or three times faster than the resident European bees did.
To figure out how the newcomers reproduce so quickly, the researchers set up glass-sided observation hives hives (urticaria), rash consisting of blotches or localized swellings (wheals) of the skin, caused by an allergic reaction (see allergy). The swelling is caused by distention of the skin capillaries and escape of serum and white cells into the skin and tissues. for both Africanized and European bees. Each started with 1,000 marked bees, and researchers tracked activity bee by bee.
Africanized bees were more likely to collect pollen--a High-power baby food--while European bees were more likely to bring home nectar--a good ration ration
a fixed allowance of total feed for an animal for one day. Usually specifies the individual ingredients and their amounts and the amounts of the specific nutriments such as carbohydrate, fiber, individual minerals and vitamins. for winter. In a climate like Arizona's, the pollen-skewed colonies did not suffer in cold weather.
In the Africanized colonies, and much less so in the European ones, worker metabolisms revved up when bees got old enough to forage forage
Vegetable food, including corn and hay, of wild or domestic animals. Harvested, processed, and stored forage is called silage. Forage should be harvested in early maturity to avoid a decrease in protein and fibre content as crops mature. . Thus they worked harder than their European counterparts. The Africanized bee baby boom, Fewell and Harrison propose, comes in part from extra effort and extra pollen.
