Honey Facts

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.


The practice of honey collection and beekeeping dates back to the Stone Age period as evidenced by cave paintings.


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


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.


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