Honey Facts

Honeybees & Their Work

· Honeybees visit 50-100 flowers during one honey collecting trip.
· To make one pound of honey, bees must visit 2 million flowers.
· Each working honeybee will produce 1/12th teaspoon of honey during their lifetime.
· A single beehive will fly over 55,000 miles to make 16oz. of honey.
· A honeybee can fly 15mph.
· In a single day, a honeybee may fly 12 miles and pollinate as many as 10,000 flowers.
· While gathering flower nectar, honeybees will store their collected nectar in a special honey stomach. Once full, the bees place their nectar in an empty hive honeycomb.
· Natural head gland chemicals from the honeybees combine with water evaporation in the nectar to create the resulting honey.
· Rather than hibernating during winter months, honeybees feed on stored supplies and share body heat.
