Mysteries of Bee-keeping Explained Summary

Three kinds of bees. Every prosperous swarm, or family of bees, must contain one queen, several thousand workers, and, part of the year, a few hundred drones. The queen is the mother of the entire family; her duty appears to be only to deposit eggs in the cells. As all labor devolves on the workers, they are provided with a sack, or bag, for honey. When the family is large and honey abundant, a brood of drones isreared; the number, probably, depends on the yield of honey, and size of the swarm, more than anything else.
