is a common saying. Our bees are constantly working … .
The worker-bees live during summer for 6-7 weeks.
During the last weeks their wings are worn down when they are
collecting nectar, pollen or water.
In the bee-hive nectar is transformed to honey.
|To produce half
kilo of honey the bees must cover a distance |
corresponding to two times around the globe. During this journey
they have made between three to four million visits to flowers.
Bees are extra delighted with dandelion, maple, raspberry, rose bay, heather and a few others.

depends on what kind of flowers the bees have collected
nectar from. Dandelion, sallow and raspberries yields pale honey.

taste than the others.
