Honey Bee facts:

The Scientific Name of the Honey Bee is Apis mellifera. Honey Bees ar busy bees. The can fly up to 55.000 miles to make 1 lb of honey! And they do it for a long time now. Bees have been producing honey for at least 150 million years. The one that is working is always female. Males do not know how to even feed themselves and their only reason for being in the hive is for reproducing with the queen. The males do not have a stinger and they are kicked out of the hive in the autumn, because there are no uses for them. A queen is the largest bee in the hive. She can lay up to 2.000 eggs per day, twice her own body weight.

Honey bees are very clean. They want their hive (which they made themselves, hexagon by hexagon) to be immaculately clean. If something dirties their hive, they will immediately get the offense out. The only honey bee in the hive that uses the bathroom inside the hive is the queen. She never leaves the hive, so her faithful workers get her mess right out. Bees will also make sure that when their time comes, they will die outside of the hive.

There is only one queen per hive. The queen lives 2-3 years. The queen is made, rather than born. Worker bees will feed larvae royal jelly for a certain period of time. The royal jelly is secreted through the heads of the worker bees and is fed through their antennas to the larvae. The royal jelly has so many vitamins and nutrients it will allow for the larvae to become queens. Since there can only be one queen per hive, the potential queen bees will fight to the death until there is only one queen remaining.

Honey bees, like their name implies, are the only insects to make honey. Bumblebees make a honey like substance, but it tastes very different. They also make this in very small quantities. Honey bees though make honey in surplus so bee keepers are able to take a certain amount without hurting the bees or depriving them of food.
