Honey Facts

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


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.


A honeybee's wings must flap approximately 12,000 times per minute to support their pollen and nectar-laden bodies as they fly back to the hive.


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