Honey bees die immediately post-sex. Much like the male praying mantis, male honeybees get the short end of the stick to ensure the survival of their species. The Queen Bee takes her would-be fathers of the next generation of the colony on a flight, get to know them for a bit, and hear about their hopes and dreams.
Then, the honey bee that gets to the Queen first can mate with her seven to ten times before his endophallus (the bee version of a penis) literally rips off and sticks to the queen. Then, he dies (at least he doesn’t get eaten). Another honey bee can remove it from her to get his turn (and also dies). The only one who really benefits from this orgy is the Queen.
