July 10th Don’t Step on a Bee Day

We all love honey and it’s good for us too! And if it weren’t for the honey bee, there would be no honey, or at least not naturally anyway. A bee flies nearly 55,000 miles to produce 1 pound of honey, and it takes visiting over 2 million flowers to get the nectar to create that same pound of honey. One bee will transport enough nectar to produce a half teaspoon of honey in its life (generally living from 122-155 days). That is pretty awesome! Think about that the next time you have some honey on your toast or in your tea. So bees are our friends – don’t step on them (not to mention, that it is also not a good situation for you either)!

How to celebrate – Have some honey today. Think about the bees before you disturb their nests and watch out for them when you walk through a field. Plant some flowers to help the bees out.
