Watch how a queen bee lays eggs


Team Udayavani, Aug 5, 2021, 4:43 PM IST

A viral video shared by the Instagram page ‘texasbeeworks’ on July 29 has taken internet by surprise. The page is managed by beekeeper Erika Thompson who often posts pictures and videos featuring bees and shares interesting trivia about bees.

She recently posted a video capturing the process of a queen bee laying eggs while others in the bee colony surround her.

The caption read, “This is a queen bee laying an egg. The number of eggs a queen lays each day changes depending on the needs and health of the colony. If a colony needs more bees, a strong and well-fed queen can lay her own body weight in eggs each day.”

Further, “Also, if you’ve ever wanted to see a queen bee next to a worker bee and drone bee…this is your chance to compare each type of bee alongside one another! There’s only one male drone bee in this video—he’s the big bee to the upper left of the queen as she lays the egg. All of the other bees are female worker bees.”

The video has received 170K views.
