Honey Facts

Bees have 5 eyes: two big ones in the front of their head and three smaller ones on top of their head, which help them fly properly.


In summertime, honeybees cool the hive by fanning the air with their wings. The hum of all those beating wings can be heard from several feet away.


The queen honeybee may lay up to 1,500 eggs per day and can lay up to 1 million eggs over her lifetime.


Hypothetically, it would only take one ounce of honey to fuel a honeybee's flight around the world.


Karl von Frisch received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1973 for deciphering the "waggle dance", which is how honeybees communicate with one another.
