I went to Big Island Bees website (www.bigislandbees.com) and found this information. I blatantly cut and pasted it, so if you tell anybody about how amazing bees are and use these statistics to prove it, be sure you give Big Island Honey the credit:
Each 9.5 oz. jar of Big Island Bees honey is the result of:
flying 32,550 miles
to visit 1,185,000 flowers
to collect 5.93 lbs of nectar.
That’s a lot of work. But, it is so worth it!
Thank you, Big Island Bees. I’m still enjoying your honey on fresh biscuits for breakfast.
BEEattitude for Day # 149:
Blessed are people who appreciate bees, for they shall find honey in abundance.
One thing Fran is grateful for right now:
The Gwinnett County Extension Service (see tomorrow’s blog to find out why).
