Stingless Bees-Honey Bees008.tif
The guard bees watch over the entrance to the hive, a veritable takeoff runway built of wax. The populations of trigona scaptotrigona can mainly be found on the central plateaus of Mexico (Sierra Madre). This bee is kept for its honey and for the pollination of the coffee plants. The trigona scaptotrigona can also be found in Africa and Australia.
