Honey Bee Coloring Pages

Beehives are built with beeswax, and for every 1 kg of beeswax secreted by worker bees, 16 kg of nectar is consumed, while a worker bee can only collect 0.5 kg of nectar in its lifetime. The hives are hexagonal in shape, because this is the structure that can be built with equal amount of materials to maximize the internal space to save beeswax. This structure is also mechanically stable and is widely used in aerospace equipment. Here are some free printable honey bee and beehive coloring pages.
