A large beehive can contain up to 80,000 bees but there is never any danger that such a vast number of insects will lead to confusion or chaos.
There is only one queen in a hive and her sole task is to keep on laying eggs. There are several hundred male bees, known as drones, who do no work except fertilize the eggs. But as soon as a new queen is born these drones are massacred by the worker bees who are all females, though incapable of laying eggs.
The worker bees form the overwhelming majority of the population of a beehive and collect all the nectar and pollen.
Bees suck the nectar from the flower through a special nose- tube and then carry it in a sack which contains up to 50 milligrams. The pollen is carried in two little baskets on the bees hind legs. The worker bee delivers these ingredients and other worker bees in the hive mix them together into a sort of paste which is fed to the larvae so that they will develop into adult insects.
