Bee Facts
The honey bee's wings stroke incredibly fast, about 200 beats per second, thus making their famous, distinctive buzz. A honey bee can fly for up to six miles, and as fast as 15 miles per hour. A hive of bees will fly 90,000 miles, the equivalent of three orbits around the earth to collect 1 kg of honey. It takes one ounce of honey to fuel a bee’s flight around the world. A honey bee visits 50 to 100 flowers during a collection trip. The bumble bee nests in leaf litter or the soil, and a single Queen can lay about 8-12 eggs, which it does in spring. The workers that emerge can fly in weather that is very cool, which makes them very valuable as pollinators. Bumble bees produce just a few grams of honey at a time, just enough for feeding their young, hence their honey cannot be used for commercial purposes. A hornet's sting can carry some serious reactions to those people who are allergic to its venom. Therefore, it is necessary to apply immediate and appropriate treatment. On the other hand, a single yellow jacket can sting more than once and it is a sensation that is relatively more painful than that of the honey bee sting. In November of 2010, an 81-year-old woman in Florida accidentally disturbed a yellow jackets nest, which is when they tend to sting. Horrifically, she was stung more than 1,000 times before getting back inside her house. Though she survived, the aggregate poison ingested into her system has negatively affected her liver and kidneys.
