Caption: I met the Mariola bee! A friend has a feral colony in their wall. This tiny bee makes wax tube entrances, and tons of honey. Only 4-5mm, this stingless bee could be a good solution for women raising bees here. When splitting the hive, they swarm to a new location, set up the hive and share resources. Then 90% of the swarm returns to the original hive. #bees #mariola #honey #honeybee #beekeeping #slowlife #nicaragua
