Bees ~ so much to learn about apiculture

Yesterday I experienced a tour at the Marshall's Farm to witness beekeeping and honey extraction. And among many facts about bees, this one really impressed me...

A colony of bees consists of 20,000-60,000 honeybees and one queen. Worker honey bees are female, live for about 6 weeks and do all the work.
