The worker bee is a female bee that lacks fertility. Among the bee colony, only the queen bee has the ability to reproduce.
The main task of worker bees is to collect food, spleen, spleen, clean the nest, and build a hive. The various jobs in the hive are also done by the worker bees.
Both worker bees and queen bees are developed from fertilized eggs, but there is a big difference between the two in comparison. The queen bee larvae have been raised with royal jelly, and the worker bees are not. The worker bees eat mostly honey. The nutrition of honey is not high in royal jelly, and there is no biological hormone in honey that promotes the development of ovary of worker bees. Therefore, the development of reproductive organs of worker bees is incomplete.
The life expectancy of worker bees is generally only 30 to 60 days, while the life of the queen bee can be three years, and the longest can live for eight or nine years.
