The Drone is the male Bee. They are there for mating purposes only when the Queen goes on her one mating flight. If they get lucky they die in the process. If not, they hang around the hive until late Fall when they are kicked out and left to die. They eat too much and don't do anything so they are dismissed. Queen runs a tight ship. Now these soft vintage-feel t-shirts come pre-washed and pre-shrunk, making sure that your size and color will hold up with time. Ringspun yarn makes the t-shirt feel lighter than the regular cotton T-shirt, and is a lot softer and more durable.
