Interesting facts about bees

Honey Bee
Honey in Egypt

Honey was found in the tomb of King Tutankhamun and it was still edible, however a little bit dry
Evaporating nectar

To make honey, bees drop collected nectar from their honey stomachs into honeycombs & evaporate the water from it by fanning it with their wings.

Worker bees

The buzzing sound

A bee beats it's wings approximately 11 400 times every minute. That's what makes the buzzing sound.
4 Million flowers

About 4 million flowers must be visited to make 1kg (2.2 pounds) of honey.
Bees role in nature

Our well-being depends on healthy natural ecosystems. To a large extent, pollinators including honey bees sustain populations of wild plants that maintain the good health of ecosystems.
Bees supporting the economy

Bees in addition to providing increased crops and increased profitability to farmers by pollination, also contribute to job creation and employment both at beekeeping and farm level. This is a huge contribution to food security and poverty alleviation.
The bee hive as a natural pharmacy

Products from the bee hive including honey, beeswax and propolis are widely used to heal many ailments as they have numerous medical benefits.
Honey crystallisation

Honey sometimes takes on a semi-solid state known as crystallized or granulated honey. The complex sugars contained in nectar is broken down by enzymes within the bees honey stomach. This causes the nectar to break down into 3 main components: glucose, fructose and water. Water is evaporated till the honey is thick and gooey. This natural phenomenon of crystallisation happens when the glucose level is higher than the fructose level, conversely the more fructose in the honey, the slower it will crystallise. There is no one test, other than a laboratory, to determine the purity of honey.
