Honeybees cannot get nectar in the winter so they
must make plenty of honey to survive.
A honeybee can visit up to 10,000 flowers a day
to get nectar and pollen. That makes only one
teaspoon of honey.
It takes nectar and pollen from one million
flowers to make one pound of honey.
• The queen bee lays many eggs. This is the first stage of
a bee’s life. The worker bee takes 21 days to become
an adult. The drone takes 24 and the queen takes 16
• The baby bee is very small at this stage.
• It takes 3 days to become a pupa.
• A pupa is a little white worm.
• The pupa spins a silky cocoon around itself during this
• The drone lives 1 to 2 seasons.
• Queen bees live 3 to 5 years.
• The worker lives 3 weeks.

• First, a field bee collects nectar
• Next the honeybee turns the nectar into
• Finally the honey is put into cells called

is put onto the top of the honeycomb
• Then a beekeeper comes and puts the
honey in bottles to sell to people
• It takes one million flowers to make a
pound of honey
• The female workers collect the nectar
More Interesting Facts
• The taste and color depends on the nectar
• They take it back to the hive in a honey

Honey Bee Communication
Christina, and Shelby
Honeybees communicate one way by doing a dance called
the round dance which tells the estimate of the distance between
the hive and the flowers.
Honeybees also have another dance called the
wagging dance that they use to say the exact distance
between the hive and the flowers.
Honeybees also smell to communicate. The
smell is called pheromone. The worker bees smell
this and it tells them if they can get back to work or
have to help the queen.
HOW HONEYBEES HELP FLOWERS AND CROPS
Bees pollinate the same plant for several days.
A bee is searching for a blossom.
A honeybee pollinates crops and helps make seeds.
Pollen will stick to a honeybee’s body.
The seeds grow and soon become fruit.
