Did you know?
🌻 They beat their wings up to 200 times per second!
🌻 There is only one queen bee per hive and if she dies, they select a young freshly hatched larva and feed it 'royal jelly' that enables it to grow into a fertile queen.
🌻 All worker bees are female.
🌻 Honey is produced as a winter storehouse for the bees. Lucky for us, they produce 2-3 times more honey than they need!
🌻 They know how to dance! The worker bees will perform a 'waggle dance' for the other bees to indicate which direction a food source is located.
🌻 A worker bee will only live around 5-6 weeks, whereas a queen can live upwards of 5 years! During her prime, the queen can lay upwards of 2500 eggs per day.
🌻 They are essential in the pollination of many flowers, fruits and vegetables!
For a neat study on bees, check out @homeedprintables Bee Pack! We also love @usborne_books How a Flower Grows, as well as Julia Rothman's Nature Anatomy.
Here are a few new beers that are generating some buzz! From Framingham's own @springdalebeer comes Geography Bee, a pair of saisons made in collaboration with Oregon's @nectarcreek. The OR version is made with Oregon carrot blossom honey, while the MA version utilizes cranberry blossom honey to create two distinctly un-bee-lievable beers. Also in stock are Lavenade and Rhuby Bluesday American wild ales.
Today is National Honey Bee Day!!🍯🐝✨
To help spread awareness about our beloved pollinators I’d like to share this video of one of our queens laying an egg.
A queen spends nearly all her time in the nursery, or brood chamber. She walks on the comb examining it closely before laying an egg. Most queens only see the light of day when they take their maiden voyage to mate. She has loving worker bees around her taking care of her every need so she can focus on expanding the colony. The smell of a queen’s pheromone brings harmony throughout the hive. Her unique fragrance is sent from bee to bee like a message. It suppresses the reproductive abilities of other female bees (yes! Unfertilized bees can lay eggs). It helps guard bees identify which bees belong in the hive. It encourages comb building and productivity. Most importantly it her scent creates a calm order, spreading a kinship like cohesiveness to all the bees in her hive family. ~🐝~
Why should we care about our bees? A high number of bees have been on the decline around the world since the 1990s. Mostly due to pesticides and climate change. Bees are responsible for pollinating a third of the world’s food! So, if you like food and flowers you should love our bees too!
