Honey Bees were introduced from Europe and are the best known of our bees because of the value they bring to United States economy.
Not only do they produce honey, but they also provide an estimated $20 billion annually from the pollination of cultivated crops in the United States.
Arizona Bee Control
There is no such thing as a small hive when it comes to talking about honey-bees; their hives usually contain as much as 10,000-50,000 bees and 20-80 pounds of honey.
In Arizona, they live year round, their size ranging from 1/2" to 3/4". These bees can be seen in a giant swarm migrating; or as few buzzing around structural buildings.
A new honeybee swarm may consist up to 4,000 to 6,000 bees.
The honeybee contains a distinctive structure on its hind legs called a "pollen basket", which is somewhat of a 'built-in container with attached hairs on the end used to carry pollen to back to their nests.
Honeybees visit about 2 million flowers to make one pound of honey. Honeybees do have barbed stingers; if a person or animal gets stung, the bee will lose its stinger and die.
