before someone can average the trips to the flower per teaspoon of honey, wouldn't it depend on the nectar source first? I have not seen it but have heard on a strong flow that a hive can fill 3 honey supers in a week!!!,


This volume of honey comes easily from canola field when hives are beside the field.  
* The flying distance of one mile halves the yield.
* Average sugar content of nectar is something 30% ?
* Prosessing nectar in the hive consumes 30% from nectar
* 30% foraging bees have a afternoon sleep and they stay afternoon on the shadow wall of hive.

Question: How many spoon bees gathered from flowers and how much they got under wax cap?

Sorry to cause you such angst jerrymac.  I wasn't offering a theory, rather trying to make a point.  That landscaping in a small area probably doesn't impact a colony of bees as much as people would like to believe.  However, if you want to come over, mark a few bees... and measure the trip time.. I'm sure I can validate the 1.2 beer theory.   I'm such a generous guy... I'll spring for the beer too!!    bahahahahahahahahahh

The mood would be tolerable, after all it would form a part of matrimonial duties. Cheesy
