    It takes one colony of honey bees (around 30,000 bees) to pollinate an acre of fruit trees. Pollination success increases if there are more honey bees present at the time of peak flowering.

    The average life of a honey bee during working season is about six weeks.

    Honey varies in colour from white through golden to dark brown, and usually the darker the colour the stronger the flavour.

    - From The Canadian Honey Council booklet The Story of Honey by L. K. Dennis

    I love honey on my toast and warm tea biscuits.
    Read somewhere that there was a mysterious disease that killed off many colonies last year.

    Must be why it has "BEEn" so expensive lately Sad
