Workers are the only bees that most people ever see. These bees are females that are not sexually developed. Workers forage for food (pollen and nectar from flowers), build and protect the hive, clean, circulate air by beating their wings, and perform many other societal functions.
The queen’s job is simple – laying the eggs that will spawn the hive’s next generation of bees.
Areas found: In bee hives and in cavities (like chimney and wall cavities)
Signs of infestations: Live bees
