A single Honey bee egg. Honey bees get their name because these are the species of bee that makes honey. Most honey bees live in special houses called hives which are looked after by people. We call these people beekeepers. Honey bees live in a big family group called a colony. During the summertime, there can be over 50,000 bees living in a single colony! The queen bee is an egg-laying machine. During April and May she lays eggs day and night. It takes her around 20 seconds to lay a single egg ' That means she is able to lay over 2,000 eggs per day!
