National Pollinator Week: TGIF

And, for a little Friday amusement, a poem that was recently posted on the Entomo-L listserver:

The bee is such a busy soul,
She has no time for birth control.
So that is why at times like these,
There are so many sons of Bs.

Doug Yanega pointed out that a bee that doesn’t mate will, in fact, produce only sons of Bs, since that is how the apian haplodiploidy system works.
