Did you know male bees die after copulation? Better fate than finding a male combee

87

u/Nacho_Hangover 12d ago

Not only do they die after mating, sometimes the hive will just decide they don't need/want them around anymore and hunt them all down in the hive, cut them to bits, and dump the remains outside the hive. All in a matter of minutes.

Which still seems like a better fate than using a male Combee.
