Honey is the only food that does not spoil. Honey found in the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs has been found edible. However, one small bee should fly around 2 mln flowers to make a kilo of honey. Unfortunately, every year more people die from bees' bites than from the bites of snakes. Only female bees that are sterile can bite but they live 40 days. The queen bee lays about 1,500 eggs per day and lives up to two years. Drones live up to 24 days.

Many Ancient Coins had the emblem of the honey bee, a symbol of wealth and power due in part to the fact that ancient society realized that the honeybee had such control over their food supply. (But why does that bee look more like a wasp?
