The Worker Honeybee

There can be as many as 50,000 worker bees in a strong, healthy hive. Without them the colony cannot thrive. They carry out a range of functions from caring for the Queen, her eggs and rearing the young as they grow. The site has an extensive variety of plants throughout the Slí na Sláinte – a fantastic source of nectar for bees over many months.
