Female or Queen Bee (Apis Mellifica)

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“The female is smaller than the male, and has a longer body than the working bee; the wings are shorter in proportion. The only part she has to play is that of laying eggs, so she has no palettes and brushes.”


Hazlitt Alva Cuppy PH.D., Editor Beauties and Wonders of Land and Sea (Springfield, OH: Mast, Crowell & Kirkpatrick, 1895)
