The Value of Honey

Several readers speculated about what 100kg of honey could be worth. 100kg equals 220.462 pounds. According to the “National Honey Board” the current price is $5.67/pound. So the load of honey beyond the ceiling had a total (retail)value of $1,250.02, with other words a little bit less than what the bee-guys charged to roust the bees out of the house. Of course, costs for processing the sweet stuff must be deducted. Would the value of the honey have paid for the renovations of the ceiling?  Very doubtful.

  1. Thanks for the explanation. Now, here's another bee question for you.

    How in the world did those beekeepers find 1 queen bee out of 80,000 bees?

    1. Maybe like 200/pound, and then take the total weight??
