Info: A honey bee is a eusocial flying insect within the genus Apis of the bee clade, all native to Afro-Eurasia. There are roughly 20,000 species of bees worldwide, including solitary bees, bumblebees, and honey bees. But only the eight species of honey bees—whether tended by beekeepers or living in the wild—make the delicious golden sweetener we love. The best-known honey bee is the western honey bee (Apis mellifera), which was domesticated for honey production and crop pollination. Only members of the genus Apis are actual honey bees. Humans also use beeswax in making candles, soap, lip balms, and cosmetics. (Ref)
