Products of the beehive III

Royal jelly is the product of young adult worker bees that eat pollen and digest it, at a particular age, glands in their heads produce a substance that looks quite a bit like yogurt that these “nurse” bees feed to a very young larva. All larvae are fed this food for three days, after the three days, larvae’s that are to become worker bees are fed with a mixture of pollen and honey and the few larvae’s that are to become queen bees in special cells continue to be fed royal jelly and they are supplied with much more than they can eat; they grow faster and emerge to become a bee that lives for years (rather than the few months that a worker lives).
