Honey bees are important insects because they produce and store honey. Honey has great benefits like countering pollen allergies, antioxidants, aids with coughing, assists with sleeping, and many more.
They are oval-shaped and are golden-yellow with brown stripes around their hairy bodies. Some honey bees are mostly black but still have noticeable dark-to-light coloring. They are usually smaller than wasps.
Honey bees build their hives from wax. The hives can be identified by their six-sided tubes. The tubes are used to store honey.
