How do bees make honey?
The honey bee collects the nectar with their long tongues (known as glossa). They store the sugary nectar in their honey stomach, and it then mixes with enzymes from the hypopharyngeal gland within the bee's body. Once full they return to the hive and transfer the sugary substance, by mouth, to another bee whose job it is to store the product.
This bee is between 6 to 18 days old, and their job is to process honey in the hive.
Bees keep the temperature inside the hive relatively constant between 32.5 to 35 degrees Celcius. Maintaining this temperature helps the evaporation of water inside the honey substance.
Once the bees are happy that the water has evaporated sufficiently, they seal the comb cell by capping it with wax. The water is usually evaporated until the nectar is about 17 % to 18 % water.
