A honey bee also spelled honeybee is a eusocial flying insect within the genus Apis of the bee clade , all native to Eurasia. They are known for their construction of perennial colonial nests from wax , the large size of their colonies, and surplus production and storage of honey , distinguishing their hives as a prized foraging target of many animals, including honey badgers , bears and human hunter-gatherers. Only eight surviving species of honey bee are recognized, with a total of 43 subspecies , though historically 7 to 11 species are recognized. Honey bees represent only a small fraction of the roughly 20, known species of bees. The best known honey bee is the western honey bee Apis mellifera , which has been domesticated for honey production and crop pollination ; the only other domesticated bee is the eastern honey bee Apis cerana , which occurs in South Asia.

The western honey bee or European honey bee Apis mellifera is the most common of the 7—12 species of honey bees worldwide. Like all honey bee species, the western honey bee is eusocial , creating colonies with a single fertile female or " queen " , many normally non-reproductive females or "workers", and a small proportion of fertile males or " drones ". Individual colonies can house tens of thousands of bees.
