The queen bee is a female, mother of most bees in the honey bee colony. When this bee is still a larva, it is particularly selected and specifically fed to be a maturely mated bee. This young larva is especially fed with royal jelly from the heads of its bee workers. A regular worker bee is only served some royal jelly for the first few days while the queen bee is continuously fed with royal jelly. It will soon become a sexually mature bee because of this unique diet. A queen bee lays about 1500 eggs a day.
