Did you know?

  • One bee has to fly around more than twenty thousand flowers to collect 1 gram of nectar while making 15 walks because the honey ventricle can hold only up to 70 mg, while during a long flight the bee itself can eat half of the harvested.
  • During a working day, one bee flies around an area of ​​about 12 hectares, and during the entire honey harvesting, it flies a path equal to the distance from the Earth to the Moon, making up to 440 strokes per second and riching speed of up to 65 km/h. In this case, the bee can move 8 km away from the hive and unmistakably find the way back, although in most cases bees rarely move more than 2 km from the apiary.
  • Despite these impressive facts, ten bees produce only a teaspoon of honey over a lifetime. To produce 1 kg of honey, it is necessary to fly around 8 million flowers. Bees of one family (about 50 thousand bees) can collect up to 10 kg of honey, and about 150 kg of honey is collected from one hive per year.
