Honey Facts

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


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.


"Bee venom therapy" is endorsed by some health practitioners as a means of treating certain diseases and conditions such as arthritis, neuralgia, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and multiple sclerosis.
 


It takes about three weeks for a honeybee egg to hatch and the new honeybee to reach adulthood.


A hive requires approximately 60 pounds / 27 kilograms of honey to sustain itself through the winter months.
