Queen bee family

The Queen Bee

Queen is the mother of all the family members the queen lays eggs then all other family members comes out of the hatching eggs. If the queen is not available in the hive then there is of not any members of the hive can survive. Queen takes maximum decisions in their colony. She know when and how much eggs can need to produce.

The drones/male

The male bee's is called as drone. Drones main function is to mate with queen when she is born and virgin. The drone will die after mating with queen. In a colony 100 drones and more can present at a time. When the dearth period come then drones killed by the worker bee's. Again when the season comes in peak and the food is enough for the survival of the bee's then they produce the drones again as their requirement.

The worker/undeveloped female

The worker bee's in the colony do the maximum work for their colony. They feed the queen as well as the larva's and brings the food to the whole colony. They clean the box, safety for the colony, bringing the food and pollen, water in the colony. The can sting if the danger come and someone try to disturb the colony.
