All the bees that live together are called a colony. There are three types of bees in a colony: (1) queen, (2) male and (3) Workers.
There are thousands of bees in one colony. Of these, the queen is only one. This is actually a fully grown female. The queen bee alone does the work of laying eggs in the entire colony. It is larger in size and brighter than other bees, making it easy to identify in the swarm.
The number of male bees fluctuates according to the season and breeding season. During the breeding season, in a colony, they become up to two and a half to three hundred, while in unfavorable conditions their number goes down to zero. Their job is only to inseminate the queen bee. Although many males try to conceive in which only one is successful.
The most important bees in a colony are the workers. They not only make honey by bringing juice from flowers, but also take care of eggs and babies and build honeycombs.
