The  Hive  Dream Team

The Queen

⁠Typically there is one queen per hive. She rules the the roost and makes sure the population is suitable.

The Worker

About 95% of the hive population are workers and these gals take can of nearly all the business. 

The Drone

These males have an important role in population balance of the hive. 

The Beekeeper

⁠The beekeeper must actively manage the hive and anticipate the needs of the colony to help ensure that the hive is healthy and productive.
