• Honey bees’ wings stroke 11, 400 times per minute, thus making their distinctive buzz.
• An average colony has one queen bee who can lay 2000 eggs a day
• A worker bee gathers in its entire life .0288 of an ounce of honey. It required about 556 worker bees to gather a full pound of honey. The bees would fly approximately 35,584 miles or more than once around the world in doing this work.
• The average life of a worker bee during the working season is about six weeks. Three weeks of this time is spent on work within the hive, and three weeks as a field bee gathering nectar and pollen.
• The value of honey bees is important in pollinating fruits, vegetables and legumes.
• When bees come back to the beehive from pollinating they communicate the area where there are many flowers by doing a dance for the other bees which allows them to know the direction.
