A honey bee can fly for up to six miles, and as fast as 15 miles per hour, hence it would have to fly around 90, miles -three times around the globe — to make one pound of honey. Honey bees produce beeswax from eight paired glands on the underside of their abdomen.
Honey bees must consume about pounds of honey to be able to biochemically produce each pound of beeswax. Bees maintain a temperature of degrees Fahrenheit in their central brood nest regardless of whether the outside temperature is or degrees. A populous colony may contain 40, to 60, bees during the late spring or early summer.
The queen bee lives for about years. She is the busiest in the summer months, when the hive needs to be at its maximum strength, and lays up to eggs a day. The queen may mate with up to 17 drones over a day period of mating. The queen may lay or even 1, eggs each day during her 3 or 4 year lifetime.
This daily egg production may equal her own weight. She is constantly fed and groomed by attendant worker bees Worker honey bees live for about 4 weeks in the spring or summer but up to 6 months during the winter.
The average honey bee will actually make only one twelfth of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime.
A honey bee visits 50 to flowers during a collection trip. Honey bees, scientifically also known as Apis Mellifera, are environmentally friendly and are vital as pollinators Fermented honey, known as Mead, is the most ancient fermented beverage.
