250 hives x 80,000 bees = 20,000,000 bees. darn that is a lot of bees.

We can read this in the newspaper of your previous post: "To make a pound of honey, honeybees must tap 2 million flowers"

So, harvesting 20 pounds of honey per hive (if the year is not very good) (250) per 2 million flowers. We have a mountain of flowers.
