Caption: Queen honeybee (Apis mellifera). Each hive of honeybees has one egg-laying female, the queen. She produces all of the eggs for the colony, which are cared for by attendant worker bees. Whether the female larvae develop into infertile workers or new queens depends on the type of food they receive. In summer, new queens are produced that either replace the old queen, or fly off to form their own hive. Honeybees are found throughout the world and are kept by humans for their honey.
