  Among the Honey Bees
The honeybee was the symbol of Lower Egypt and papyri dated 256 BC tell of a beekeeper with 5000 hives.
By the mid 1600's, records show that the honeybee population was widespread on the East Coast and the bees spread to the West Coast before the settlers.
Honeybees are social insects with a marked division of labor among the various bees in the hive.

 Life cycle Summary
Life cycle refers to the series of changes that the members of a species undergo as they pass from the beginning of a given developmental stage to the beginning of that same developmental stage in a subsequent generation.
The life cycle is the socially defined, age-related sequence of stages individuals pass through beginning with birth and ending with death.
Underlying the life cycle is the recognition that humans are biological organisms that are born, mature, and die....

 Mining, mason, carpenter and leafcutting bees
There are some very important differences between the bumblebee life cycle and the honeybee life cycle.
As yet no equivalent to the honeybee "queen substance" has been found; in honeybee hives workers licking the queen and each other pass the "queen substance" throughout the hive, and this pheromonal control enables the queen to maintain dominance.
Honeybee queens never forage, they live their lives inside the hive only emerging to found a new colony when they swarm with a full compliment of workers.

 New behavior may use old genes
The recently completed honeybee genome sequence is aiding that effort by providing DNA sequences of genes that may be involved in social behavior, according to ASU assistant professor Gro Amdam.
Amdam explained that the honeybee is a particularly well-suited organism for studying the genetic basis and evolution of social behavior.
Foraging behavior is just one aspect of the complex social network developed in honeybee colonies, but the ASU scientists have found that preferential foraging of pollen rather than nectar is associated with a complex system of physiology, behavior and longevity that affect bees throughout their life, Amdam said.

 Bee
A honeybee queen may lay 2000 eggs per day during spring buildup, but she also must lay 1000 to 1500 eggs per day during the foraging season, simply to replace daily casualties.
Except a brief mating period when she may make several flights to mate with drones, or if she leaves in later life with a swarm to establish a new colony, the queen rarely leaves the hive after the larvae have become full grown bees.
Honeybees queens generally begin to slow egg-laying in the early-fall and may even stop during the winter.

 The Honey Question
Honeybees, both feral and "domestic", feed on nectar and pollen and studies have shown that they have a considerable impact on these resources which they share with thousands of species of native animals, including about 100 bird species, many mammals, and the 3,000 or so species of native bees.
With honeybees overlapping in resource use with so many native animal species, it is extremely likely that some of these native species are reduced in abundance by their presence.
The removal of pollen from flowers by honeybees may lead to a reduction in the amounts of pollen picked up on the bodies of the plants’ native pollinators, and the reduced availability of nectar and pollen may reduce the numbers of native pollinators actually visiting the plants.

 U.S. Agencies Fund Project To Sequence Honeybee Genome
The honeybee is the third insect to have its genome sequenced and analyzed.
The honeybee genome is more similar to those of vertebrates than it is to the genomes of insects for genes involved in circadian rhythm – an in-born 24-hour cycle that controls biological processes like sleep and digestion and hormone activity -- and biological processes involved in turning genes on or off.
The honeybee is used widely in agricultural and biomedical research and is valued by farmers for its ability to produce honey and pollinate crops.
