How do bees make honey?

What is the process that bees use to make honey.


Answer by  Philedupwithknowlege (384)

Honey making starts out at the flowers where the worker bees collect the nectar which is brought back to the hive. Once back at the hive the nectar is spit out from the field bee to one of the hive bees where it is broken down into honey.

The bees gather nectar from plants. Then they fly back to the hive where the nectar is passed to "house" bees, who process with the help of enzymes. The last step is distributing it in the honeycombs where the excess water evaporates.

Bees fly about collecting pollen and nectar from flowers in the Spring. The nectar mixes with proteins and enzymes in the bee's stomach, turning it into honey. The bees fly back to the hive, regurgitate the honey and drop it into wax combs that they make beforehand to store the honey.

They take the pollen off the flower and they eat it when they get back to the hive this gross they throw up the pollen and its honey.
