Honey bees live in colonies, as described in detail in Agrodok 32 Beekeeping. The worker bees in the colony collect various substances in nature, which their colony uses, for example to feed the adult bees and make the colony grow, as nesting material or to protect the colony. By collecting from the vegetation the bees also have an impact on the vegetation: cross-polination leads to better fructification and to seed formation by flowers that produce fruits or seeds.
