At Grand Berry, even in Osaka far from nature, I grow strawberries in an environment that is as close as possible to nature. For that reason, we release honeybee to pollinate strawberries, but some people who came for the first time seems to be surprised. Here, we will introduce honeybee to enjoy more strawberry picking.
What is honeybee?
A honey bee (or honeybee) is a eusocial, flying insect within the genus Apis of the bee clade. As in a few other types of eusocial bees, a colony generally contains one queen bee, a fertile female; seasonally up to a few thousand drone bees, or fertile males; and tens of thousands of sterile female worker bees.
One year of honeybee
Bee have times when the activity gets active and when it is often quiet in their home colony, in a year. Especially from spring to early summer honeybee gets active. Queen bees will lay eggs in the spring. And from the early summer to the summer, the children born at that time become active in their home colony in order to become full-fledged as worker bees. In addition, at Osaka and other urban areas in Kansai It is being worried about the hot weather every year, but inside their home colony there are a lot of ingenuity to always keep comfortable condition around 30 degrees.
Consideration for bees is important
There are some people who are worried about safety because seasons when honeybees are active are overlapping with the season of strawberries. However, bees are known to have a particularly calm character among insects. The honeybee's colony (nest) is attacked, and so on, honeybees will never attack you unless you attack honeybees.
