Cooperation's the name of the game for eusocial bees and honeybees are the most eusocial of all! 

Female honeybees, sharing around 75% of their DNA (we share on average only 50% with our siblings), and are “super sisters”. They cooperate enviably, which is why the hugely populated hive (tens of thousands of bees) works so well.
