When it comes to bees you won’t find a harder working bug on the face of the earth. Some bee hives will hold as many as 50,000 bees if given enough space to nest, a big Bar B.Q. for instance. A constant 94° needs to be maintained in the hive at all times for a healthy beehive. To do this worker bees either fan their wings to lower temperatures (summertime) or vibrate their flight muscles to increase heat in the hive (wintertime).
A series of hexagon shaped cells keep eggs, larvae, pollen and honey in perfect order. This kind of perfection does not happen by chance.
Bees will fly as far as seven miles to gain nectar and pollen which in turn produces honey and food for young bees.
The Valley of the Sun presents a dangerous environment for the homeowner – “Killer Bees”. Not every beehive in Arizona is “Africanized” but given enough time chances are very good they will turn very nasty. Rue is “Don’t attempt to exterminate the hive yourself!”
God’s workmanship is on full display in a beehive. My job is to simply know and glorify Him by living this life He has ordained for me. And that is sweeter than anything – even honey!
