Collecting pollen

Honey bees from a single honeybee colony will forage over a huge area of about 12,000 acres, and nearly 3 miles from their hive. Our honey bees forage in fields, hedgerows, gardens, woodland and wild flower areas, including some wild flower meadows.


The foraging bees bring many different types of nectar and pollen back to their hive, this can even change during the day; in spring bees may work dandelions during the mornings and move to wild cherries later in the day.
