Facts
A worker bee is any female bee that lacks the full reproductive capacity of the colony's queen bee; under most circumstances, this is correlated to an increase in certain non-reproductive activities relative to a queen, as well.
They do all the work in the hive, and they control most of what goes on inside. Their jobs include housekeeping, feeding the queen, drones and larvae, collecting the pollen and nectar, and making the wax.
The majority of the bee hive's population consists of worker bees.
From the day they are born they slave away cleaning and guarding the hive, feeding the bee brood.
Honey bees are social creatures that enlist a caste system to accomplish the tasks that ensure the survival of the colony.
