Honeybees

The Hive

Honey hunting evidence date back more than 6500 BCE. And more purposeful beekeeping practices have been around since 900 BCE. Here in North America, bees came from the Old World after the introduction of the apple trees, which did not fair so well away from their original habitat and pollinators. Beehives were introduced in Virginia in 1622.
