Celebrated on August 17th
Honey bees must gather nectar from two million flowers to make one pound of honey. A honey bee visits 50 to 100 flowers during a collection trip.
In their 6-8 week lifespan, a worker bee will fly the equivalent distance of 1 ½ times the circumference of the Earth.
Honeybees have five eyes, 3 small ones on top of the head and two big ones in front. They also have hair on their eyes! Bees communicate with each other by dancing and by using pheromones (scents). Honeybees never sleep!
