All About Bees

Chuck Zimmerman

Alltech Becky TimmonsHow much do you know about bees? Want to know more? Then listen to this excerpt from Becky Timmons closing session presentation at the Alltech International Symposium. She gave us some very interesting statistics.

For example, the average honeybee will live about one month. A hive of bees must fly about 55,000 miles to make a pound of honey. Just in China there about 6 million colonies of bees and about 200,000 beekeepers. Very interesting stuff. Bees are critical to agriculture and a lot of work is being done to understand the pests and factors that harm bee and beehive health.
