"The "Worker" Bee is a strong and gentle giant and a critical part of modern industry. Without these thumb-sized behemoths, many of our modern comforts would only be the rarest of treats."

The Worker Bee is a Tier 3 Social Bee species found by cross-breeding.

Like the Regal Bee it is one of a few different species that produces as usable item as it's special produce, namely Wax Canisters.

The Apiarist's Almanac gives the following hint:
A hardworking species of a Clarus and Caliginosus mix that is motivated by Honeybriar flowers.
