One bee has to fly about 120,000 kilometers – three times around the globe – to make one kilogram of honey. The average bee will make only 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime. A honey bee visits 50 to 100 flowers during a collection trip. A honey bee can fly for up to ten kilometres, and as fast as 24 kph. Honey bees communicate with one another by dancing.
