There are 3 kinds of bee’s in each hive. A Queen, drones and workers. Only the Queen Bee lays eggs.
All worker bees are female and they do all the work to keep the hive running. If a worker bee loses its stinger, it will die.
Unlike worker bees’ drones ( the male bees) do not have a stinger. They spend the majority of their lives finding Queens to mate with.
The worker bees will raise all offspring.
