Be Back by Sun Down!

Bees have schedules. They are usually out foraging by 9 am and back to the hive by sun down.

Bees from the same hive visit about 225,000 flowers per day. One single bee usually visits between 50-1,000 flowers a day, flying an average of 13-15 miles per hour.

A hive entrance can look very much like an airport take off and landing strip!
