Comme elles ont le sang froid, les abeilles tirent leur énergie de la chaleur du soleil et doivent donc se reposer pendant la nuit et par temps frais. En s'accrochant aux tiges avec leurs fortes mandibules en forme de mâchoires, elles se détendent progressivement - leur corps s'abaisse, leurs ailes se reposent et leurs antennes s'affaissent - jusqu'à ce qu'elles s'endorment, en attendant le matin.
