Humans have been keeping honey bees, in artificial hives for over 7000 years.
Pollen and nectar, which they turn in to honey
Worker bees live anywhere from 15-200 days, depending on the season
Our bees are an important part of the ranch health. We saw a huge increase in fruit production when they moved on to the farm. The parrots love them because our passion fruit pollination went through the roof!
You are welcome to visit our hives if you wish during our aviary tours. The bees often make their gentle presence known when we are near their hives. They are accustomed to routine hive checks, so they do not fret over humans with a calm presence.
Likes: Pollenating plants
Dislikes: Banana scent
The worker bees are actually females! Girl power!
