Queen Honeybees Are Made - Not BornEvery bee hive needs a queen bee and the very survival of the hive depends on her. The one living queen has just one job; laying eggs in each larvae cell in the hive.
So how comeshe can lay fertilized eggs and the female worker bees cannot? The difference is how the larvae are cared for.
When the larva is ready to come out, worker bees give the queen larva richer food. Royal jelly is given in copious amounts to the queen larva. This diet of royal jelly produces the majestic queen bee.
Essentially, all worker bees have the potential to become a queen. It's just that they were not given the same diet, which is why they are sterile.
Here is an overview of how life begins for the typical queen bee:
1st day - The queen emerges from the sealed cell and begins looking for any other queen cells in the hive. Other queen cells are destroyed and the larvae are killed. This is done to prevent the bees from swarming or splitting the colony.
3rd day to 5th day - The queen learns to fly and leaves the hive for the first time.
1st week to 5th week - The virgin queen bee starts producing a type of pheromone and begins mating flights to mate with members of a drone assembly. Once the sperm has been successfully deposited, the male drone dies. After mating with drones, a new queen will start laying eggs regularly after the 2nd or 4th day.
