It has come to my understanding if I want you, my readers, to believe what I write I had better know what I'm talking about. So, regardless the size of the part I have resolved myself to research anything I am not fabricating. (For the most part)
So far I have learned some fascinating information about northern hemisphere honey bees.
Did you know the Queen controls her hive by pheromones and that the survival of the hive is completely dependant on her? Or that the worker bees will notice her absence within a couple of hours and therefore immediately begin constructing emergency queen cells to replace her?
She can lay as many as one million eggs in her two or three year life span and as many as three thousand in a day. She decides whether she will lay worker bee eggs or drone eggs by the size of the cell she comes to in the nest. If she chooses to fertilize the egg it will become an infertile female (worker). If not it becomes a drone (male).
But, enough about bees for now.
Stay tuned. I am working on The Legend of Kozlov: Empires.
Thanks for reading,
