Worker Bees are only around for six weeks! All worker bees are female.

 

0 – 10 days old – Worker Bees are mummy Bees, also known as nurse Bees. They look after and feed the Larvae.

10 – 36 days old – Once matured they spread their wings and spend their time collecting pollen for the colony using the sacks on their hind legs.

Watch out for the Honey Bees in your garden some will have yellow bulges on their hind legs. These are the pollen sacks.
