Bees are extremely important animals for the environment, since they are responsible for the pollination of several species of angiosperms. They belong to the group of arthropods, more precisely to the class of insects and the order Hymenoptera. Some species live in society and present a work organization. In a beehive we observe the presence of the queen, the drone, and the workers. It is worth noting that there are several species of bees in the world, and that currently a total of more than 20,000 species are known. In this text we will talk a little more about the Apis mellifera bees, the most well known, studied and also bred species in the world.
General characteristics of bees – Bees are animals from the phylum Arthropoda, so they inherit some typical characteristics of this group, such as the fact that they have an exoskeleton that surrounds their body. They belong to the class Insecta, and therefore have a body divided into three parts (head, thorax, and abdomen), three pairs of legs, a pair of antennae, and two pairs of wings. The head houses the structures responsible for the animal’s senses, such as the antennae, which are connected to smell and hearing. It is also on the head that we find the eyes, two compound eyes located laterally and three ocelli located in the frontal region, arranged in a triangular arrangement. The compound eyes are responsible for forming images, while the ocelli are capable only of detecting light.
The bees’ mouth apparatus, also located on the head, ensures that this animal is able to absorb liquids and also chew. The jaws help the bees to cut and manipulate the wax and propolis they produce, as well as to ingest pollen and remove unwanted particles from the hive. The structure that ensures the absorption of liquid substances, in turn, is called the proboscis or tongue.
The legs and wings, which are the locomotor organs of bees, are on the thorax. The legs are found in numbers of six (three pairs), each pair in a segment, and are responsible, besides locomotion, for transporting pollen, handling wax and propolis, and cleaning the bee’s body. The wings are found in number of 4 (two pairs) and ensure the flight of the animal. The forewings are larger than the hindwings. The thorax of the bees is rich in hair, which helps in fixing the pollen. Most of the organs are found in the abdomen of the bees, such as the honey vesicle, which ensures the transformation of nectar into honey; wax glands, which produce wax; stomach and intestine. In the final portion of the abdomen, there is also the stinger, which is used in the worker for defense and in the queen as a guide during laying. The drone does not have one. It is worth noting that the stinger is connected to the venom sac, which releases a complex mixture of different substances called apitoxin.
