Australian Stingless Bees Build Stunning Spiral Hives and No One's Quite Sure Why

The hives do not resemble those found in other bee populations in a number of ways:

• The hives have an intricate, clockwise spiraling design.

• Each hive features only one entrance.

• The hive entrances are coated with a pathogen-blocking sticky layer, an extra line of defense for the bees which, according to Heard, “do not have a sting although they can give you a little bite with their jaws.”

Heard maintains as many as 400 of the hives at a time and says that the shape is most likely created out of necessity to protect the integrity of the core of the hive: “What we’re looking at is the advancing front of a stingless bee colony,” he says, adding, “In the middle of the spiral, you have to construct cells that move with the change.”

Some scientists also offer up the theory that the shape creates better conditions for air circulation.

I like going nuts with meli's bee theme. I'd like to add a bunch of bees following the cursor around if the user lingers too long in the website, but that probably needs js which I won't use. I went as far as making a bee fly around like a tennis ball:

I found a lavender thicket just full of bees. Different kinds of them, too. They were moving around too fast for me to get any quality photos though.

This year we have many #umbels starting to bloom from various #Allium #plants, such as #leeks and #SpringOnions. In previous years there were perhaps only one or two. #Bees and #Wasps of several varieties seem to be enjoying the food on offer. In a few days time, I hope the #flowers will be teeming with more as they fully open up.

There are currently several #bees feeding off the #thyme #flowers in the back #garden. They seem contented enough to be photographed.
