      Honey bees live in hives (or colonies).

Bee hive

      The members of the hive are divided into three types:

 

Queen bee

         Queen: One queen is responsible for the whole hive. Her job is to lay the eggs that will spawn the hive’s next generation of bees. The queen also produces chemicals that guide the behaviour of the other bees.

 

Worker bee

      Workers are all female. They collect food (pollen and nectar from flowers), build and protect the hive, clean and circulate air by beating their wings.

 

Drone bee

      Drones are the male bees, and their purpose is to mate with the new queen. But come winter, when the hive goes into survival mode, the drones are kicked out!
