Busy Bees

What is one of the most busy and productive insects? 

The bee gets the prize hands down for its productivity in supplying a product for human consumption. Bees stay super busy and just to fly a bee has to flap its wings over 200 times per second. This ultra fast flapping gives the bee its buzzing sound. The worker bees are the busiest of all. They’re the ones that are sent to find pollen and nectar, which they then turn into honey. Entomologists or bug experts study insects and have found that bees make up to 12 collection trips a day. A bee will visit between 50 and 100 flowers on each of those trips. These busy bees work tirelessly from sunrise to sunset. And when they need a break, they may only take a 30 second nap. Worker bees have a very short but incredibly productive lifespan. On average a worker bee lives for three to six weeks.

Did you know that honey is called the miracle food? This superfood contains almost every nutrient needed for life and it stays preserved for a long time, even thousands of years. Archeologists have actually found pots full of honey in ancient Egyptian tombs, and it’s still good! Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24
