    ... honey nests where you could watch the bees at work, lots of information about the bees and their jobs. It was quite interesting really. A few points I learnt were A bee isn't born knowing how to make honey, it is a learned behaviour. A bee will only make half a teaspoon of honey in it's lifetime.
