Life Cycle of Bees

Bees are like butterflies that go through several stages in their life.

Egg – the queen lays soft white eggs in the comb. The egg stage lasts for three days.

Larva – after three days, the egg hatches into a larva. Worker bees feed the larva with milk and bee bread. The larva will spin a cocoon around itself. The larva stage is from day 4 until day 9.

Pupa – the larva then turns into a pupa while inside the cocoon. During this stage, it will develop eyes, wings, and legs. This stage usually last from day 10 to 23.

Adult – the bee finally reached full growth. It chews its way out of the cell. This is the complete metamorphosis of the bee.
