How much honey does a bee make in its lifetime? Less than a gram. Most worker bees only live for around six weeks in the summer and they can only go and forage for nectar on days when the air temperature is above ten degrees Celsius (50 degrees Fahrenheit). A group of about 12 bees in their lifetime will produce a teaspoon of honey between them. Bees use their honey as an energy source for the hive. Depending on the weather, a hive might use over 20 kilograms (44 pounds) of honey over a single winter.
