Queen Bee

Queen Bee

Honey bees initially have up to 21 virgin queen bees, who fight to the death until there is only one left. Then when male honeybees mate with the queen, their penises explode (which is audible to the human ear) and they die. During the queen's nuptial flight, she'll mate with about a dozen partners and leave a trail of dead, penisless bees in her wake.
