OK, so are heater bees born or are they assigned the job? If they are born, what causes that? Do their pupae have to be kept at a particular temperature? Do they have to get the food for the extra energy themselves or do other bees deliver it to them? Etc.
Maybe these answers aren’t known yet, but reporters are good at not asking probing science questions.
Each bee in the hive needs a miniature TV camera attached to its head to we can see what is going on in there.
And, I hate to do this, but will global warming make all of the bees into foragers and then there would be no more housekeepers to take care of the larvae and clean the nest? Or will the government take care of that job for them?
You are a closet beekeeper wannabe and don’t know it. You ask all the right questions.
Get yourself some bees, ask the questions, observe first hand.
Until we learn to communicate two ways with bees, we can forget communicating with ET’s. Bees communicate at a high level we can’t begin to comprehend.
