Are bees insects or mammals?
The short answer is yes, bees are both insects and animals. In fact, all insects are animals, and pretty much anything that’s not a plant, fungus, bacterium, virus, or protist is an animal too.
Are bees mammals or reptiles?
Although bees have hairs on their bodies as mammals do, and are part of the animal kingdom, bees are not mammals. Mammals are warm-blooded vertebrates with mammary glands for feeding milk to their young.
How do bees fart?
Honey bees eat pollen, which is passed in to their honey-stomachs and mid guts for digestion. The digested sludge then passes through the hindgut to be pooped out. Since the honey bee is a multicellular being (and not a vacuum chamber), pockets of air can and do establish themselves in the fecal matter.
Are bees friendly?
Yes, bees are friendly and don’t attack or sting without being provoked. However, some factors can shape the defensive response of bees, like genetics and their roles in the colony. But the truth is, bees are very busy minding their own business and won’t sting people unless they have a solid reason.
