A larva is the immature form of an insect that undergoes some change.  An example of a larva is a caterpillar.  It builds a cocoon and eventually turns into a beautiful butterfly.  Another example of a larva is a mosquito.  A larva of a mosquito is well developed with a head that has mouth hairs that it uses for feeding.  On the other hand, an embryo is an unborn offspring of a mammal.  It is in the process of development.  An example of an embryo is an unborn child/baby.  A baby begins life as a single cell, barely visible to the naked eye.  The baby develops in the mother’s womb.

The honeycomb is like a house for a bee.  Inside it there are three kinds of bees— queen, worker and drone.  The worker bees are female.  Drone bees are male and their only job is to find a mate for the queen.  All bees have six legs and five eyes.  The first stage of development of a bee is the egg, the second stage is the larvae, the third stage is the pupae, the fourth and last stage is turning into an adult bee.

A nest is a house for a bird.  It is so sturdy and secure that it can survive even the harshest winters.  A nest has many layers.  Rough, coarse twigs often form the base.  Finer twigs and weeds are laced with bark to create the cup.  Fine grasses and other soft materials form the inner lining.

Why are honey bees so important to people?
