How do bees make honey?

It takes about 60,000 bees to travel up to 90,000 km to visit more than 2 million flowers to gather enough nectar to make just half a pound of honey!

Once the bees collect the nectar, they store it in their extra stomach where they are mixed with enzymes.  Τhen passes into the mouth of another bee. This process is repeated until the nectar is digested «partially and then deposited in a honeycomb.

Τhe bees flutter the liquid nectar with their wings, helping the water evaporate and create the thick stuff we know as «honey.» This honeycomb is then sealed with a liquid discharge from the bee belly, which hardens and becomes the beeswax known to us all. As reported in Live Science

«Away from air and water, honey can be stored indefinitely, providing bees with the perfect source of food for the cold winter months.»

Light honey, like honey made from orange blossoms, tends to be gentler, while dark honey, like those made from wildflowers, tends to have a stronger flavor!
