A Little About Bees

Bees fly at around 24 Kilometres per hour and they and they achieve this by moving their wings at a rate of 11,400 strokes per minute. This rapid movement is actually what you hear when you see a bee in hearing range. When thinking how hard your work can be, consider and compare the effort undertaken by a bee.

A worker bee generates just 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in their entire life span and to produce a tablespoon of honey, bees collectively need to be sipping the nectar from 2,000 flowers. All worth considering before taking a dollop of honey.

A bee can sting only once and then dies, and they don’t ever hesitate if threatened which naturally they are when their supply is being taken.

They of course do their best work for us by pollinating many of our food sources, hence taking good care of bees makes good sense for the bigger picture of nutrient supply. Some examples of Fruit and Veg that need bees are Oranges, Tomatoes, Apples, Onions, Kiwi Fruit, Pears.
