Beekeeper holding a brood frame

In the lower part of the honey box is the bees nest where the queen lays up to 2,000 eggs per day. Then female worker bees tend these eggs and larvae every few minutes until capping of the cell occurs on the 10th day. After that, the worker bees must still keep the brood warm so they need calories from honey in order to make sure they can perform this warming task.
