About Honey bees

Honey bees are social insects living in colonies of up to 100,000 bees.

Each hive has one queen bee whose roll is to lay thousands of eggs per day.

The queen bee is the only fertile female in the colony, most bees in the colony are worker bees, sterile females, who carry out all of the other functions of maintaining the hive. The colony will also contain up to a few thousand male bees called drones.
