I still say you are wrong about the drones. Only one of them contributes
anything to the hive. The others all just free load off of the workers until they kill them.
Oh, and which one is that? Are you assuming that only one of the drones mates with the queen bee?
Also, research has shown that when when bees -- both workers and drones -- detect that the hive is getting too cold or too warm, they work together to regulate the temperature of the hive by shivering or moving air with their wings, respectively.
The workers don't kill the drones, nor does the queen. They die as a result of mating, or of natural causes.
Oh, and which one is that? Are you assuming that only one of the drones with the queen bee?That is what we were taught (and shown on film) in school.
We were taught that the drones do very little, so that is new.
