To us, beekeeping is one of the most enjoyable hobby/businesses ever. We believe you will enjoy it as well. Honey bees are an amazing creature. Honey bee flies around 15 mph? Honey bees fly 55,000 miles to bring us 1 pound of honey. During her life (approximately 40 days) a honey bee will gather about 1/12 teaspoon of honey. Bees must go to two million flowers to gather l pound of honey. Bees can see the same colors we see except red. They can also see ultraviolet. See what waits you as you become a beekeeper.
