Communication Breakdown

In the early '90s a new kind of pesticide entered the market called neonicotinoids and phenylpyrazoles that damage the nervous system of honey bees. The result? Bees that are unable to communicate accurately with the bees in their hive. Communication between honey bees is essential to telegraph the location of food sources, as well warn about dangerous spots. What's worse, the infected honey bee flies back to the hive to contaminate their entire colony—and a weakened colony dies as a result of this pesticide."

Hot Hives

Bees can flap their wings as fast as 11,000 times per second; but not just for flight, they flap their wings to do a lot of things. One of those things is to heat and cool the hive at all times. Overall, the worker bee's wing flaps keep the hive at an all year around steady temperature of 92 to 93 sweltering degrees.

Presidential Honey

From the George Whashington White House to the White House of today, there is one staple in the kitchen that hasn't gone away: raw honey. Made popular by George Washington and his special breakfast cakes, White House Executive Chef Cristeta Comerford maintains the honey tradition with her Comander in Chief Peanut Butter & Honey sandwiches. Yep, even the President needs a little comfort food from time to time.—Zeke
