This is the Biology of Bees
It is believed that there's approximately 20,000 species of bees worldwide making them the interest of beekeepers who rely on them to cross pollinate because by bees doing that it not only changes the flowers pollen is collected from creating new species of flowers, but it also changes the consistency of the honey the produce.
Bees are also tracked by beekeepers when other species of bees cross breed of bees and allows them to keep track of their habits from mating to origin of where they come from. Honey production is also tracked by beekeepers since different species of bees will also produce different consistencies of honey.

The origination of bees is mostly from places in Europe, Africa and some parts of Asia, but most from immigrants to the U.S over the past centuries Antarctica is the only place where bees were not found. The evolutions of bees are derived from wasps since they're cousins with the exception that wasps aren't pollinating insects and their ability to be organized rivals wasps, beetles, flies, and butterflies. Bees are also categorized in two social classes that are ideal for beekeepers to know in managing bees and bee hives.
Most bees born are usually female you have few males, and females will fight each other for control of the hive and colony. Now most people when they hear about the African bee they think killer bees when in fact the Africanized honeybee is in fact not dangerous as its just some believe It is a type of bee that is the most popular with beekeepers and the industry of beekeeping.
The African honeybee are the most readily used when they produce clover honey which is the most used and produced honey. Other reason that African bees are popular is because they're not an aggressive species that will readily attack someone, but they will attack when they're defending the hive and the Queen-permanently goes inside the hive after she becomes pregnant and isn't seen ever again. Usually most beekeepers remove portions of the hive, but leave the one that contains the queen.

Bees are generally docile, but during picnics they can get annoying just because their sense of smell will direct them since their eye sight is bad. Their sense of smell is what helps them find flowers they pollinate and sometimes with the food people eat in this world the smell can mimic flowers which can result in them getting their scents mixed up. This is why you'll likely find bees swarming around trash because debris on food wrappers can attract them because sweet scents resemble flowers and plants.
Beekeepers should be careful about dispensing their trash just because honeybees smell sweet scents form distance and that can be harmful to people around that area.
