1. WITHOUT ANY HELP FROM THE BEEKEEPER
The beekeeper will remove or separate a queen bee from its beehive, so the bees think they don't have a queen (called queenless). Then the beekeepers select very young larva- about 3 days old. They put these larva into cups. The bees then start feeding these larva the Royal Jelly to turn them into queen bees. Once they are ready to emerge, the beekeepers separate them (so they don't hurt each other) and put them into tiny beehives where they can mate with drones and start laying eggs!
"Bee in the Know": The queen is the only bee in the hive that lays eggs (she'll lay about 1,500 each day)! These eggs can turn into worker, drone, or a new queen bee.
