Honey bees belongs to family Apidae and contained about 20,000 species. Honey bees are social insects living together meaning that individuals are present in castes with specific characters and completing their life cycle in a common nest. In January to July 2016 at Districts Gujranwala and Gujrathoney bee farm containing 130 boxes was observed keenly and notice mutual cooperation among various castes of Bees outside and inside their boxes. It was observed that honey bees served each other during their life cycle. All the members of the caste selected Queen, who worked a lot in favor of Bees Farm. The fertilization of Queen takes place outside of the box, leaving the others undisturbed. Once a box lost Queen it is very difficult to accept other if provided, but there may be a chance to accept a new one when soak/wet with honey. Other female Bees (worker) lay eggs inside the box losing Queen. All the members worked according to instruction given by Queen. The caste of Workers and Drones of Honey Bee colony sacrificed themselves in feeding and securing their generation and Queen respectively. Foreign Bees were not allowed to enter into another box according to the order of Queen. Honey Bees of different box accepted larvaeā€™s of each other if they hatch their eggs nearly at the same time.
