Focus on Farming - Beehive Live

Watch this webstream from 0600BST to 1500BST to follow the busy goings-on inside a productive beehive on a bee farm in the South-East of England.

The Queen bee can lay up to 2,000 eggs a day into the honeycomb cells. Once the eggs have hatched into larvae, the bees cap the cells over with beeswax. The larvae eventually nibble their way out and emerge as bees.

If you have more questions we're hosting a question and answer session with a bee farmer at 1200BST - post your questions on our BBC News Facebook page.
