Fun Honey Bee Facts
Did you know at a top speed of 15-20 miles per hour, honey bees are not the fastest fliers in the bug world. That’s because they’re built for short trips from flower to flower, not for long-distance hauls. Their tiny wings must flap 12,000 to 15,000 times per minute just to keep their bodies aloft for a flight home to the hive—usually at a clip of about 12 miles per hour—when fully loaded up with pollen.
