According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly... the bee, of course, flies anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible.  The humble honey bee found its origins in South and Southeast Asia, but it has rapidly become one of the most important insects, both in terms of its role in our food economies and general maintenance of ecosystems, but also a fascinating creature in its own right, with a complex hierarchy of power within the colony that has sparked the imagiations of thinkers like Karl Marx and Bernard Mandeville.  Bees even have have their own branch of entomology devoted to them, known as melittology. The honey bee begins life as an egg, develops into larva, then pupa, and depending on gender and other factors, becomes either a worker bee, drone, or queen bee.  The bees develop a colony consisting of honeycombs, and produce both beeswax and honey.  The queen bee resides in a unique comb cell.

With this educational specimen, you can see firsthand all of the stages of a life of a honey bee, including their production. The block features real-life samples of eggs, larva, pupa, drones, workers, etc., as well as a specimen of a comb foundation, worker foundation, queen cell, beeswax, and honey. All of this is nicely presented in an acrylic block. Used as a slide under a microscope or as a hands-on specimen, this makes a fantastic addition to any science classroom.

  • Acrylic specimen block featuring specimens of all the possible life cycles of a honey bee
  • Approximate size of block: 5.5" X 2.5" X 0.75"
