In an age when bees are often the victims of industrial-scale pollination, there’s no shortage of names for the flowers they pollinate, as well as the flowers that produce them.
Bees, bees, bees.
Some names are as simple as bees: bee balm, bee farm, bee balming, bee juice, bee pollen.
But others are as complex as bee flowers: bee tea, bee-bud juice, honey bee, honey bees, honey tea.
The names are so varied that, for some, bees are just a little bit of a mystery.
And while some names are actually quite catchy, the bee species they come from are not known, making it impossible to name them.
“It’s really hard to know what’s really going on in a bee’s life,” said Jennifer Lee, an entomologist at the University of Washington.
“That’s really the main thing.
There are so many different things that they do.”
That’s not to say there’s not a lot of mystery to the bees themselves, which are actually incredibly complex, Lee said.
“They are living beings.
They are constantly changing, evolving and developing,” Lee said, adding that bees don’t just get a new species name every year.
“The genes are passed down through generations.”
That means bees have been called all sorts of things in their evolutionary history, and they have many more names than there are species of them.
Some are very familiar names like the American black bumblebee and the Asian honey bee.
Others are a little less familiar, like the Japanese black-and-white bumble bee.
But the bee that you might be thinking of right now is not a common name.
It’s called the honey bee or the European bee.
And even though it doesn’t get the same attention, it has a lot in common with those other bees.
“These bees are very important pollinators,” said Kim Buehler, a bee expert at the Xerces Society of North America.
“A lot of people don’t realize how important they are.”
Buehl noted that bees can make a lot more than just honey, but are also important pollinating and nectar-producing plants.
“You can’t get enough pollination from bees,” she said.
The European honey bee is also an important pollinator of plants.
It pollinates hundreds of millions of flowers every year, including millions of different varieties of tomatoes, bananas and roses.
That makes it a good candidate for being called the bee of flowers.
But for some people, it’s more confusing.
The American honey bee has a different name for its honey.
It is called the European honeybee.
The bee with the same name is called an American honeybee, but for a different reason.
“Because it’s not just a bee, it is an organism,” Buehel said.
That’s the reason the European and the American honey bees have so many very different names.
And the reason for this confusion is because the European bees are so different from the American ones.
European honey bees are tiny, with a long antenna that they attach to their body.
“We don’t know what that means, but that’s what makes it so different,” Lee explained.
The short antenna that these bees have is called a mandible.
“So the bees with the American name can’t just hang around all day,” she added.
The same goes for the Japanese honey bee as well.
Japanese honey bees can lay a large number of eggs, and even produce larvae that can survive in the environment for many years.
“And so when you have a bee that is pollinating, you have to look for larvae in the honey to see if they’re viable,” Biehl said.
But while the Japanese bees are different from American honeybees in their anatomy, they are not nearly as different from one another as the European ones.
Buehlers lab is working on a project that will be looking at how the Japanese are more closely related to American bees than the European.
“I think we have a pretty good idea of what the DNA sequence is for these two species,” she explained.
“But we don’t have the complete genome.”
Lee said it’s likely that the Japanese have an entirely different genetic makeup from the other species.
“There is no way for us to know if they have a common ancestor with the other two species.
We know that the European species is much more closely closely related,” she continued.
“In fact, the Japanese species is about a million years older than the other.”
It may take a little while for researchers to determine if they can accurately describe the different bee species, but they have been able to identify some of their names in the past.
The honey bee was named after one of its cousins, a name that became the official bee name for the species.
That name comes from the Greek word for honey, hos, which means
