New adult honeybee (Apis mellifera) emerges from its honeycomb cell. Newly emerged adults are identical to others except for their lighter color and inability to sting. Honeybees undergo complete metamorphosis, a process which includes four stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult, the latter emerging from a honeycomb cell.
