How far away do bees carry pollen?

    Bees have been known to fly nearly four miles, and sometimes farther to collect pollen. It is said that the amount of travel that it takes for a bee to produce 2lbs of honey is the equivalent of circling the earth 4 times.

    They will go as far away as they have to to collect nectar. This means that they will go up to seven miles away, but this will also result in a decrease in the hive’s weight. It’s not healthy for a hive to have to travel a large distance, but the bees will do it if it’s neccessary. Since they will travel 7 miles away from the hive to get nectar, they will carry the pollen 7 miles back to the hive.
