    Honey Bees are social insects and live a s colonies in hives , with mature colonies of 20,000 – 80,000 individuals . Adults are represented by workers which are infertile females , a queen or inseminated female , and drones (males) which come from unfertilized eggs .
    The young workers care for the young or brood , build the comb , provide hive ventilation , and guard the hive entrance . Older workers serve as foragers to gather pollen , nectar and propolis or bee glue . Workers live only about 5 to 7 weeks during thesummer but those emerging in the autumn , over winter . Drones (males) apear periodically and are short lived , usually living only a few weeks .
