2215 The World Honey Bee Day

this is not so much a day to celebrate honey bees,
as it is to promote their involvement in sustainable farming.

Do you know that:

The oldest bee fossil ever found is between 25 to 50 million years.
Bee colony (within a year) consumes about 70 kg of honey and 20 – 30 kg of pollen.
Bee queen can in 24 hours lay up to 2,000 eggs, which are heavier than she itself.
A brooding of the eggs lasts just 10 seconds.
Bees live only 40 days (during the year).
The bees have to visit 4 million flowers to for just one kilogram of honey.
