Dr Jamie Ellis and Mating biology of the honeybee
Individual honeybees and honey bee colonies both reproduce. In this lecture, you will learn about the mating and reproductive habits of queen and drone honeybees. The reproduction of individual bees will be placed in a larger context with that of colony-level reproduction, a feat accomplished by the swarm.
