SOCIAL INSECTS

These are the insects that live in groups with labour divisions, cooperation in care of young with many generations working together. Social insects are haplodiploid (see haplodip-loidy), with males developing from unfertilized eggs.

SOCIAL INSECTS: "Bees and ants are examples of social insects."
