Worker honey bees share out their jobs based on their age:
·         1-2 days old
They spend their time cleaning cells, starting with the one they were born in, as well as keeping the brood warm.
·         3-5 days old
they feed older larvae. 
·         6-11 days old
they feed the youngest larvae. 
·         12-17 days old
they produce wax, build combs, carry food, and perform undertaker duties.
·         18-21 days old
they get guard duty, protecting the hive entrance.  
·         22 days on until their death at around 40-45 days
they get to fly from the hive collective for pollen, nectar, water, pollinating plants, and things of this nature.  They travel up to six miles from their hives!
Whew!  That's a lot of work crammed into such a short lifetime!
