There are three members of a honeybee colony:

Queen—mother to all the bees in the colony; she is a fertile female.

Worker—an infertile female that performs the labor tasks of the colony, including food preparation, guarding the hive, feeding the queens, drones and brood, and heating and cooling the hive.

Drone—the male that starts out as an unfertilized egg. Its only purpose in the colony is to mate with a virgin queen, but not more than one in a thousand get the opportunity.
