All fruit and grain crops require pollination. In New Jersey, apples, cranberries, blueberries, cantaloupes, cucumbers and watermelons - all need Bees!! 

Annual and Perennial Flowers need Bees too! If the flower is fragrant then it requires an insect to pollinate it (if it doesn’t have a fragrance then it is wind pollinated)

Honeybees, yellow jackets, hornets are most common bees in New Jersey

The hive has the queen, female worker bees and male drones. Bees sleep at night and wake up at crack of dawn. 

So beekeepers face the hives to the east, so the bees can get to work early!!

Local honey is beneficial to people with allergies because it boosts the immune system against these allergies

The queen is three times larger that all of the rest of the bees (drones and workers)


Beeswax can not be synthetically manufactured. Beeswax candles are odorless and dripless (if made right)
