Honey Facts

A honeybee typically visits between 50 and 100 flowers during each of her many foraging trips. During a busy day, she may visit up to a total of 2,000 flowers.


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.


Honeybees survive the winter months by clustering together for warmth and they can maintain an internal hive temperature of 93 degrees Fahrenheit / 34 degrees Celsius regardless of the outside temperature.


Honeybees represent a highly organized society with each bee playing a specific role (e.g., nursemaids, sentinels, gathers, housekeepers, builders, royal attendants, etc.).


A typical honeybee hive consists of 50,000 to 60,000 worker bees, 800 drones and one queen at a summer’s peak.
