Worker bees cannot carry very much pollen from that many flowers at any one time.  As a result, a worker bee will visit between 50 to 100 flowers before heading back to its home.  OF course, it doesn't stop there.  A worker bee continues this round trip process throughout the day and throughout its short life.


To put it into perspective, a worker bee only lives about 3 weeks and will cover somewhere around 500 miles during that time.
