The Bee Cycle
Before becoming a bee, the egg has 4 stages of development.
The first step is the laying of the egg by the queen, in an alveola of the hive.
If the egg is fertilized, it will become a queen or worker. However, if it is not fertilized, it will become a drone.
During the next 3 days, the egg develops and becomes a larva.
After 9 days, the larvae are covered with a wax cap. This phase is called the "sealing phase".
The pupa is the 3rd stage of development. We can observe the creation of antennas, wings and mandibles and other sense organs like eyes, mouth.
When it's an adult, the insect goes out of the alveola and beats its wings to start its work.
