National Honey Bee Day 

World Honey Bee Day is celebrated every third Saturday in August. It is a holiday that reminds us of the beauty and value of bees. Do you know there are 20,000 different species of bees all around the world?

A single worker bee will visit up to a few thousand flowers per day and produces around 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in its life time while a colony together may visit up to 225 000 flowers per day and can produce 200+ pounds of honey in a single season, some have been recorded as producing around 600 pounds 

Bees, like many insects, see from approximately 300 to 650 nm. That means they can't see the color red, but they can see in the ultraviolet spectrum (which humans cannot).

Celebrate World Honey Bee Day by helping to protect these essential pollinators - plant bee-friendly plants, use eco friendly pesticides, visit an Apirary, and support local beekeepers!
