As emerging adults, workers have only about 10 ovarioles, whereas queens have over 100. With so few egg-producing ovarioles left, the larval workers largely lose the ability to reproduce. The effects of royal jelly Royal jelly creates queens through its effect on ‘juvenile hormone’. This amazing hormone can, for example, keep caterpillars in the larval stage and so prevent them from developing into adults. It puts them into an ‘eternal youth’ state and keeps them there. It seems likely that lots of royal jelly changes the ‘juvenile hormone’ levels in maturing larvae so that females develop fully formed egg-producing organs: the workers (who don’t receive enough jelly) fall into an ‘eternal youth’ state, but the queens (who receive plenty) don’t and therefore mature.
Because bees close gaps with it, they frequently stick the hive boxes together, which means using the hive tool to separate them. The same goes for the frames. Lids are another target and are frequently stuck down, especially if the lid undersurface is very close to the tops of the frames. A. Burdock describes propolis as a sticky, dark-coloured material that honey-bees collect from living plants, mix with wax and use in the construction and adaptation of their nests, mainly to fill out cracks in the beehive.
The further the foraging site, therefore, the longer the duration of the waggle, and the bigger the food source the greater the number of dance cycles. The angle of the straight line from the vertical (vertical comb) is equal to the angle between the food source and the sun upon departure from the hive, and the vigour with which the waggle is performed is an indication of how much food is present at the site. While carrying out this dance routine, the bee will often stop and give out small samples of nectar to those attending the dance.
