Honey bees pollinate more flowers than any other insect. A forager honeybee can visit up to 10,000 flowers a day while gathering nectar to turn into sweet honey. All the nectar a single honey bee can collect in her lifetime is only about one teaspoon. To make one pound of honey, it takes nectar from over one million flowers. Some colonies of bees can produce 500 pounds of honey per year! The overuse of sprayed chemical pesticides as well as other modern day environmental issues not fully understood has caused a drastic decline in bees both domestic and wild. This is cause for great concern as so many of our crops (our food) are dependent on their pollination services. We love our bees!
