Adopt a Bee!
Bees are one of the most fun pollinators and in need of our help! Adopt a bee today!
Hives are made up of three types of bees: worker bees, drones and the queen bee!
Worker bees are the most familiar-looking member of the honeybee hive, as they make up about 99% of each colony's population.
Worker bees are all female, and they do almost everything for the hive. The worker bee is given different tasks to do during different stages of her life. Worker bees are responsible for everything from feeding the larvae (the baby bees), to tending to the queen, to cleaning the hive, to collecting food, to guarding the colony, to building honeycomb.
Male bees are called drones. Their job is to mate with queens from other hives. You can identify drones in the hive by their big round bodies and large eyes. Drones are incapable of stinging.
When you adopt a bee, you can choose a worker bee or a drone. Donors will receive an adoption certificate with the name of your bee and a sticker to proudly display! A tax receipt will be issued for the donation.
