On website Lauren replied: "...Your information is very accurate, except that unfertilized eggs develop into drones without any additional fertilization. This means that male bees (drones) have half the number of chromosomes that female bees (queens and workers) do, which leads to lots of interesting behaviors."
These amazing little creatures really DO have knees – aren’t they cute? “The bee’s knees” means “the highest quality” because that’s the area on their bodies where most of the golden nectar is concentrated. We adore everything about bees and honey: it’s our raison d'être (reason for existing)!
