Lost me after the first mention of the word tail. I then rapidly lost interest.

The coiling honey at the very beginning was awesome though.

Typically bees in a strong hive run a very clean operation. If their numbers are good they would clean up any spillage themselves. I'd say that wall hive has been disturbed.

Ants will sometimes try to colonize under the cover of a hive but they usually aren't an issue at all.

The difference between bees and the Borg is bees can give you hives [/double entendre].

(the Borg just assimilate you into one)

Ah, but the Borg possess a hive-mind.

ETA: Nevermind, I see what you did now. Maybe, a triple entendre?

Honeybee Queens tooting and quacking is communication with the workers.
Really, would I lie to you, listen.
When the new queens are ready to be released from their brood cells they quack.
The reigning queen toots as long as she is there.
When she takes off to start a new hive the tooting stops and the workers release a
quacking queen who immediately starts tooting to signal the workers to not release
another queen unless they want a death match.

Mexico has stingless bees. They don't make much honey but it sells for $0.20 cents a gram.
