"Apis Mellifera: Honey Bee" a high-speed short from Michael N Sutton
A honey bee can fly up to 6 miles; as fast as 15 miles per hour. Their wing stroke at 200 beats per second. The average bee produces 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in a lifetime. 1100 stings are required to be fatal. The drones do not sting and do not work. A colony consists of 20,000 - 60,000 bees and one queen. Worker honey bees are female, live for about 6 weeks and do all the work. A hive will fly 90,000 miles to collect 7kg of honey. A queen bee can live for 3 to 5 years. Honey bees have 2 compound eyes and 3 simple eyes. Drones are expelled from the hive during winter and die after mating. Biggest threats: mites, colony collapse disorder, disease, urbanization and African bees.
