Caption: Newly emerged honey bee (Apis mellifera) next to a flower. A worker bee emerges as an adult after spending around two weeks developing from the larval stage to the adult stage. It then spends around 20 days in the hive before emerging to spend the rest of its life as a forager, feeding on nectar and pollen from flowers. The honey bee is the subject of genome sequencing work aimed at improving bee traits and management.
