Visit Parlando for more updates about our honeybees.
There are three types of honeybee: the queen, the worker, and the drone.
THE QUEEN BEE
There is only one queen per hive. She grows one and a half times larger than the other bees, lives 40 times longer than the workers (up to seven years), and can lay between 1,200 and 2,000 eggs a day, which may be her weight in eggs. Ouch!

For bees, yes.
Urban areas are an ideal environment for honeybees, as bees in agricultural and suburban areas are faced with the risk of being poisoned by pesticides, fungicides, and insecticides.
