See the First 21 days in the Life of Honey Bees

In this TED Talk, photographer Anand Varma gives you an up-close view of baby honey bees in the first 21 days of their lives. See the mesmerizing way that they hatch from eggs and eventually develop from tiny larvae into the busy honey bees we’re familiar with.

Varma, who raised bees in his backyard to capture this incredible footage, also describes the many difficulties that honey bees are facing, from parasitic mites to pesticides, and what is being done to help them.

In particular, Varma shares the experimental research programs by the USDA to breed bees that are resistant to attacks from mites, and how they are collaborating with commercial beekeepers to reduce their dependence on chemical means to control pests.
