Other bees have similar physiology, but the Mechanisms have been best studied in Bumble bees.
The eggs hatch develop into female That workers, and in time the queen populates the colony, with workers feeding the young and performing other duties similar to honey bee workers. According to the Oxford English Dictionary (OED), the term Bumble bee was first recorded as having been used in the English language in the 1530 work by John Palsgrave Lesclarcissement, "I bomme, as a bombyll bee dothe." The latter term was used in A Midsummer Night's Dream (circa 1600) by William Shakespeare, "The honie-bags steale from the humble Bees."
"Said the Bumble Bee." In the post-World War II era, however, be humble-bee fell into near-total disuse. The orchestral interlude "Flight of the Bumblebee" was composed (circa 1900) by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov to Represent the turning of Prince Guidon to visit his father, Tsar Saltan, in the opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan, although the music is Considered to Reflect more accurately the flight of a Bluebottle than a bumblebee.The music inspired Walt Disney to feature a Bumble bee in his 1940 animated musical Fantasia and have it sound as if it were flying in all parts of the theater. The archaic English colloquialism dumbledor (also used for cockchafers) is the source of the name Albus Dumbledore, a fictional character from the Harry Potter series (1997-2007).
