How Bees Make Honey!

How bees make honey
Bees are flying insects closely related to wasps and ants. Bees make the honey we eat.
Some species including honeybees, bumblebees, and stingless bees live socially in colonies. Bees are known for feeding on nectar and pollen, They use the nectar that they collect to make honey! Honey is a sweet, sticky yellowish-brown liquid made by bees and other insects from nectar collected from flowers.
Bees find flowers that have nectar. The bees collect nectar from flowers which are located all over the world. The bees collect nectar with its proboscis then when the bees honey stomachs are full with nectar the honey bee goes back to their hive.
Then Nectar is delivered to one of the indoor bees and is then passed mouth-to-mouth from different bees, this changes nectar into honey. When the bees pass the nectar to each other by their mouths the moisture content is reduced from about 70% to 20%.
Then the honey in placed into hexagon like shaped cells where it is covered off and placed into storage. After the honey goes into the cells the human can come and scoop out the honey so we can eat it.
So the bees make honey by getting nectar and taking it back to the hive and passing the honey mouth to mouth and then is put in storage for the humans to scoop out and eat! But personally I think that people shouldn’t be getting honey because we are stealing from bees and the bees need the honey to feed their babies.
