Nurse Bees

A newly hatched baby bee tending the Brood

A newly hatched baby bee has lots of golden "hairs" or " fur" on its face . They start working to feed the Queen and tend the  newly laid eggs and larvae that will become fellow worker bees in the hive.( Four stages of a honey bee's life are egg, larva, ( shown above that look like lttle worms) Pupa,  and Bee.  The newly hatched Nurse Bees  feed the larva royal jelly and they feed the older larve  "Bee Bread" which is a fermented pollen mixture that they make,  and honey of course!
