Royal jelly is a honey bee secretion that is used a nutrition for larvae and queen bees. When worker bees decide to make a new queen because the old one is either dying or dead, they choose several larvae and feed them royal jelly in specially constructed queen cells. This triggers the larvae to develop with queen morphology, including fully developed ovaries needed to lay eggs.

ATTENTION ALL BLOGGERS, ARTISTS, AND PEOPLE WITH A GENERAL CONCERN FOR THIS PLANET!! THE BEES ARE DYING AND THEY NEED OUR HELP!!! 

Bees are extremely important to any agricultural system on the planet! In 2010 alone they pollinated over $19 billion worth crops in the US, which is over one third of everything we eat! Bees are essential to us and our planet which is why we need to help. Bees have started dying off due to something called Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), which has been linked to pesticides. CCD has already wiped out an estimated 10 million bee hives in the past six years and is only getting worse! Bees also happen to be an indicator species (if they die, we die), which means that when they die it can create a ripple affect that could end up in an agricultural collapse!

A bee landed on my lips before. What does that mean?

That your lips are as sweet as nectar.

…And as usual with my followers this is going to take a weird sexual turn and someone is going to tell me a bee landed on their dick, isn’t it.
