Welcome to VBees Apiaries!
Honey Bees and Pollination
Day by day, moment by moment thousands of little bees fly millions of
flowers, gathering tiny droplets of nectar then transforming it in “liquid gold”
for our enjoyable consumption.
Bees will visit 2.5 million flowers and fly 50,000 miles to make 1lb of honey. A
honey bee will produce in average 1/12th teaspoon or 0.42ml of honey in her
lifetime of about 45 days, besides nursing the brood, building the comb,
keeping the hive clean, collecting pollen etc.
A hive can make over 100lbs surplus of honey per year, if there are millions
of flowers around.
They will consume over one gallon of honey to make 1 lb of wax.
It is a tremendous job. Imagine people working like bees do.
In addition to honey, honeybees dressed in a yellow-black uniforms get all
covered with pollen as they walk over the flowers performing an invaluable
task— pollination. Without bees our planet won’t be so colorful or our menu
won’t be so diverse.
One of the most brilliant minds of 20th century Albert Einstein said "If the bee
disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would only have four
years left to live."
Year by year more and more consumers find more benefits in VBees Apiaries
