Since 1973, the honeybee (apis mellifera) has been the official insect of the state of Arkansas.

The honeybee was also commended for its virtues believed to represent the citizens of the state of Arkansas: diligence, hard work, attention to home defense and productivity.

Fun Facts

Honey never spoils

Honey bees fly at 15 mph

Honey is 80% sugar and 20% water

 

A Single Honey Bee

will visit 50 - 100 flowers in just one trip out of the hive!

The honey bee's wings stroke incredibly fast, about 200 beats per second, thus making their famous, distinctive buzz. A honey bee can fly for up to six miles, and as fast as 15 miles per hour. The average worker bee produces only about 1/12th teaspoon of honey in her lifetime.

Bees need water

We use a protein and water combination that encourages brood and honey production.  Bees need a water source close to the hive.  They even use water when fanning to cool down the hive.
