Honeybees fly at 15 miles per hour.

Bees communicate with each other by dancing
and by using pheromones (scents).

Honeybees have five eyes, 3 small ones on top
of the head and two big ones in front.

Honeybees are responsible for approx. 80% of all fruit, vegetable
and seed crops in the U.S.

Honeybees are the only insects that
produce food for humans.

Honey is the ONLY food that includes all the substances 
necessary to sustain life, including water.

To make one pound of honey, the bees in the colony
must visit 2 million flowers, fly over 55,000 miles
and will be the lifetime work of approximately 300 bees.

It would take about 1 ounce of honey to fuel a 
honeybee’s flight around the world.

Honeybees never sleep!

Honey never spoils.
