Honey Bees are normally about 3/4 of an inch long. Most bees are workers, which are female, but some are male, called "drones." Workers are slightly smaller than drones. All Honey Bees are reddish brown and black, with orangish-yellow rings on the abdomen (back part of body). The head, antennae, and legs are black. Honey Bees have thick, pale hair on the thorax (middle part of body).
