Bees Do it Better

We shouldn’t underestimate the importance of the bee population and I am not lecturing anyone with 81 million western honey bee hives globally. And yes Gigi I know you have bees because we tasted it. And while I am not in advancing technology: and this is interesting but artificial is a substitute after all.

The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations, recent estimates suggest that there are at least two trillion bees in the world which are being taken care of by beekeepers;

  • It requires 556 worker bees to gather a pound of honey
  • Bees fly more than once around the world to gather a pound of honey
  • The average life of a honey bee during the working season is about six weeks
  • Nectar as gathered by the bee contains about 70% water *Honey is about 17% water
