facts about bees

The only insect that generates sustenance for humans is the honey bee. A honey bee can travel up to six miles and up to 15 miles per hour, therefore to make one pound of honey, it would have to go 90,000 miles — three times around the world. One ounce of honey is enough to power a bee’s journey across the world. Honey is made up of 80% sugars and 20% water. Beeswax is produced by honey bees from eight pairs of glans. Animal pollination is required for about 90% of wild plants and 75% of the world’s most important crops. 1 Pollinators are responsible for one out of every three mouthfuls of our food. Pollination-dependent crops are five times more valuable than non-pollinated crops. Bees may be found in a variety of places, some of which are surprising.
