Honey Facts

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


A hive of honeybees will fly 90,000 miles / 144,840s kilometers, which is the equivalent of three trips around the earth, to collect 2.2 pounds / 1 kilogram of honey.


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.


The average worker bee produces only about 1/12th teaspoon of honey in her lifetime.


Pollen, which is primarily protein, is fed only to honeybee larva while nectar, which is primarily sugar, is fed to both honeybee larva and adults.
