Honey Bees

How do Honeybees Make Honey?

Honeybees make honey by collecting nectar from flowers using their proboscis. The nectar is stored in their honey stomach. Back at the hive, worker bees transfer and process the nectar, adding enzymes. The mix is spread over the honeycomb, and bees fan it to reduce water content. Once ripe, they cap it with beeswax, creating the golden goodness we know as honey.
