As soon as I heard "Royale jelly" it reminded me of Roblox bee swarm simulator 😂

Invoke the 25th amendment to the insect constitution and imbeech her. Collusion with foreign hives is a crime. So is giving sexy worker bees your royal jelly to stop them buzzing at you.

My phone's screen cut off the last half of the "n" in "queen" when it showed up in the search results. Needless to say, it was QUITE confusing.

💡I finally figured out that it’s his voice / vocal cadence that messes me up. It’s THIS GUY specifically. When he’s talking it’s like my brain doesn’t compute what he’s saying because of his cadence. I have to listen again and again. He’s learned and practiced this type of speaking cadence and he is doing it on purpose. It’s just him because I’ve listened to other people on this channel and it doesn’t happen. It only happens with to me when he’s talking. It’s a real thing. Just look it up. I’ve tried but I just can’t suffer this torture any longer now that I know and understand what’s happening and why. 😔If this is happening to you, don’t feel bad. For everyone else, enjoy. 💞

Was it really proven that the larva that is given royal jelly is not different from other larvae? It would be nice to take many larvae from one hive and feed them all royal jelly artificially, and see if all of them will indeed mature the same.

Why don't the worker bees themselves eat the royal jelly when they are capable to produce it themselves ? Why work till death? Evolution should happen here!

Phillip J. Blige (1 month ago)
So what happens if a worker bee goes against the system and consumes the royal jelly? Does it live longer? Does it spread the word about the royal collusion? Does it get killed and the news spreads it as a conspiracy theory so other bees don't get the same idea? So many questions...

They feed her jelly as a larva. She grows up. She is bigger and she is the only female bee that can lay more female eggs. The end.
