What is Abdomen? The third region of the body of a bee enclosing the honey stomach, true stomach, intestine, sting, and reproductive organs. An entire colony of bees that abandons the hive because of disease, wax moth, or other maladies. The tracheal mite (different from the varroa mite). It lives in the tracheal air tubes and affects the bee’s breathing. "Look at the abdomen fuzz!!! My coworkers said she’s wearing a skirt - it does look like those vintage layered tassels skirts"
