Abstract Hossam Abou-Shaara holds the Baqshan`s Chair for Bee Research in the Department of Plant Protection, College of Foods and Agricultural Sciences, King Saud University, Saudi Arabia. Here he explains how water collection is vital for honey bees for their own bodily needs and to maintain a suitable microclimate within its nest. There have been relatively few studies on water collection behaviour but here are some remarkable notes on water collection in a land of few water resources.
