King bee found, I knew it.
« on: June 12, 2005, 05:13:03 PM »
Today while checking the hive I found a large drone that was clearly in charge. The queen was following him around and every cell he walked over to she would lay in. While she was laying I saw him meet with other drones who then directed the workers as to where to store pollen and nectar. It’s obvious that every good hive has a drone bee running the show.  :wink:

Yeah. There was a king and a poor, beautifull girl in the forest. They mever met. They both lived happily their life.

Leadpipe - Where is your hive located?  Sounds like Fantasyland.    

In the hive, the females are in charge.  In the human world it is the same, but they pretend that the males are in charge.

Surely I am going to get warning for my opinions, but I am sure, that drones make brain work in the hive.
