Bees working Hard to Keep Our Economy Humming!

Check Out The Buzz!

It is week five of my beekeeping adventure and the bees are still doing great! Queen Golda has been laying eggs and the colony is rapidly increasing at a rate of about 1,000 bees per day. The worker bees have made 10 frames of new comb and many frames of capped cells which contain eggs, honey and pollen. I decided it was time to expand their home by adding a second hive box.

As I continue to listen to the honeybees, I hear them working hard to keep our economy humming. I have learned that honeybees really do take an active role in our economy. By pollinating crops like apples, berries, cantaloupes, cucumbers, alfalfa, and almonds, they are contributing more than $15 billion to the value of U.S. crops. U.S. honeybees also produce about $150 million in honey annually. What an inspiration!

I am always available to listen to your bee stories and field your financial questions. Contact me at or 651-290-6114 or connect with me on LinkedIn. I look forward to hearing from you.

Bee Well,

Jon Kvasnik ChFC (aka King Bee)
