It's hot, bees are ejaculating to death :))
What’s black and yellow and ejaculates (xuất tinh) until it dies during heat waves? Male bees, it turns out, and scientists — disturbed as they may be — have a solution.
When the males get too hot, they convulse until they explosively ejaculate to death, and a phallus the size of their abdomen bursts from their lifeless body.
Yes, it is disgusting and upsetting.
But we can fix it, UBC experts say.
One solution is to keep the hives cool during extreme heat, perhaps by using a polystyrene cover. Dr. Alison McAfee and Emily Huxter conducted the research, with Armstrong-based beekeeper Huxter on the ground and McAfee conducting analysis remotely.
