Apis mellifera (species) (Apis (genus), Apidae (family), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Species of bee native to Europe, Asia, and Africa; introduced to North America in the early 17th century. It is around 1.2 cm (0.5 inch) in length,has a somewhat bristly head and thorax, and varyies in color according to the strain. Two large compound eyes and three simple eyes, or ocelli, are located on top of the head. Keen eyesight is complemented by two sensitive, odor-detecting antennae. There are a number of races, subspecies, and strains of this species. As with other bees, honey bees are social insects and live together in nests or hives. Honey bee colonies have been cared for and managed by humans for many centuries, for the purpose of harvesting their honey and for their role in agriculture as pollinators of a wide variety of domesticated plants.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Bijensoort die inheems is in Europa, Azi├ź en Afrika en die begin 17de eeuw in Noord-Amerika werd ge├»ntroduceerd. De bij heeft een lengte van circa 1,2 cm, een kop en borststuk met een enigszins borstelig aanzien en een kleur die per stam varieert. De twee grote samengestelde ogen en drie enkelvoudige ogen (ocelli) bevinden zich boven op de kop. Het scherpe zicht wordt gecomplementeerd door twee gevoelige geurdetecterende voelsprieten. Er komen allerlei rassen, ondersoorten en stammen van deze soort voor. Net als andere bijen zijn honingbijen sociale insecten die in nesten of korven samenleven. Al eeuwen worden bijenkolonies door mensen verzorgd en onderhouden voor het oogsten van honing en voor hun functie in de landbouw als bestuivers van gedomesticeerde planten.
