Royal jelly, while less popular than bee pollen, has become a very well known and talked about health product in the last few years. Royal jelly is produced by the young nurse bees and is created to be used as larva food. Royal jelly is secreted from the young nurse bee’s glands located in the top of their head.

Working bees will generally live for five to six weeks while the queen can live for five or six years in some conditions.
