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.
