Beekeeping

 

Honeybees are one of Yahweh's most amazing creations! The keeping and studying of honeybees is very addictive so be careful! Honeybees are important pollinators of many native flowering plants. If you would like to help your garden and neighborhood consider keeping a couple of colonies. As honeybees gather pollen and nectar they pollinate nearby crops, fields and gardens.

Nevada Backyard Beekeeping is fun and rewarding

Not only do honeybees provide pollination and enjoyment an established honeybee colony can produce excess honey, sometimes 50lbs or more! as well as beeswax, bee pollen and propolis! More on Become a Beekeeper

Honey Bees

There are three types of bees in the hive – Queen, Worker and Drone.
The queen may lay 1,500 eggs or more each day during her 3 or 4 year lifespan
Honey bees fly at 15 miles per hour.
Honey bees' wings stroke 11,400 times per minute, thus making their distinctive buzz.
Honeybees are the only insect that produce food for humans.
Honeybees are the only bees that die after they sting.
Honeybees are responsible for pollinating approx 80% of all fruit, vegetable and seed crops in the U.S.
Honeybees have five eyes, 3 small ones on top of the head and two big ones in front. 
Bees communicate with each other by dancing and by using pheromones (scents).
Honeybees never sleep!
Honey

Honey is 80% sugars and 20% water.
To make one pound of honey, the bees in the colony must visit 2 million flowers, fly over 55,000 miles and will be the lifetime work of approximately 300 bees.
A single honeybee will only produce approximately 1/12 teaspoon of honey in her lifetime.
A single honey bee will visit 50-100 flowers on a single trip out of the hive.
Honey is the ONLY food that includes all the substances necessary to sustain life, including water.
It would take about 1 ounce of honey to fuel a honeybee's flight around the world.
Beehives

A colony may contain 30,000 to 60,000 bees during the late spring or early summer.
A honeycomb cell has six sides.
Bees maintain a temperature of 92-93 degrees Fahrenheit in their central brood nest regardless of whether the outside temperature is 120 or -20 degrees.
