Swarming bees. The composition of the bee swarm

More than 50% of bee swarms are bees, whose age is from 2 to 21 days, 22-24-day bees make up 1/3 part. The rest are bees over 24 days and one-day bees.

a bee swarmThe internal temperature of a swarm of bees at a maximum is about 36C, and the outer minimum temperature is about 15C. To maintain the necessary temperature outside the hive, bees conserve energy very economically.

Foreign authors write that in natural swarms the number of drones varies - from 0 to 1000, but more often than not, they make up about 1% of the total number of bees.
