Bee Fuel Efficiency

Bees are incredible creatures able to fly miles in search of good food sources, but I never realized how efficient they were until my wife told me about a story she heard on NPR this morning. According to research done on a bee’s ability to convert honey into energy, a bee actually gets 4,704,280 miles per gallon of honey. To put that into perspective, the average distance from the earth to the moon is around 240,000 miles.
