The Queen Honeybee

The Queen Bee is possibly the most important figure in a hive. Without her the colony cannot thrive as she produces the Worker bees, who go on to care for her and also collect the food necessary for the hive to survive winter. A hive will usually have only one Queen. The Lime tree is described as the ‘Queen of Honey Plants’.
