Queen Bee

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.
