Honey Bees are a social insect and populate in colonies. These colonies have a three-tier caste system which consists of: the queen bee that is responsible for producing eggs; male drones that mate with the queen; and female worker bees that don't reproduce. Their wax hives are perennial and can harbor up to 80,000 bees simultaneously. They stay most active in summer months; during winter, bees gather within the hive and self-regulate the internal temperature to keep warm. Honey Bees are greatly depended upon in agriculture for pollination and they account for 80% of all insect pollination.
Bee adventurers go the extra mile for the survival of their colonies. In bee hives, only certain bees leave hives to hunt for new food sources and to find new accommodations once populations outgrow their current hives.
