The combs built by bees consist of two kinds of cells, one1-5 inch in diameter, and known as worker cells, the other j inch, calleddrone cells, the former being the cradle of the worker bee. the latter that ofthe drone. In a state of nature a large percentage of the comli consists i drone-cells, and immense numbers of drones are raised, a provision of nature toinsure the fertilization of the queen from one hive bv a drone from anothercolony, which, when bees are in their wild state, is often a considerabledistance away. In the meeting of the sexes, which alwavs takes place inthe air often a considerable distance from the hives, a further safeguardagainst inbreeding is the aversion of the
