Queens only exist in social

Queens only exist in social species (bumbles, honeybees, ants, social wasps) that have sterile (in practice, most of the time) female workers.

Irish records are really good to have. Could you inform the National Biodiversity Data Centre in Waterford? They are gathering in as much bee data as they can
