Free images -  Insects - Hives

Note on large files:  Very large files may be bigger than your screen.  
Right click on any portion of the image showing and chose "save as".  

 

 

Hard working bees live and work in colonies and build large nests called "hives".  Hives are made of hexagon-shaped cells made of beeswax.  The cells are used to lay eggs, hold larvae, and store honey and pollen.

Did you know... 

that someone who raises bees for honey production is called a "beekeeper"?  Managing bees species is called "beekeeping" or "apiculture".

Hornets & Wasps

Hornet and wasp homes are referred to by some as "nests" and by others as "hives".  They are usually built in tree trunks like the one below.  A queen builds a series of cells from chewed wood fibers.  Arranged in horizontal layers, the cells are called combs.

The photo above clearly shows several clusters of combs.  As the colony grows, new combs are added.  The structure is continuously enlarged and all the combs are enveloped with only one entrance way open. The combs are made out of a paper-like material that is composed of chewed tree fibers mixed with the saliva of the hornets/wasps.  This is technically known as "wasp spit".

 

Did you know... 

that unlike honey bees, wasps do not produce wax?  The cells that the larvae grow in are made of primarily wood pulp.
