How do bees making honey ?
Honey is a food that we should regularly use in our diet. It is very frugal to go to local honey production or to a health food store and buy a honey jar.
But have you ever wondered how the bees produce honey?
So, how do bees making honey?
Honeybees collect pollen and nectar from flower blossom.
The honey is made of sweet fluids that are in the flower and are called nectar. In nectar, there is 80% of water, with which the compound sugars are mixed.
They use their long tongues to suck the nectar out of the flowers and carry it to the beehive. They have a regular stomach and stomach for honey, which serves to transport nectar from flowers to hives. In the bee’s stomach nectar mixes with the proteins and enzymes produced by the bees, converting the nectar into honey.
The bee must go between 100 and 1500 flowers to fill its stomach between the nectar, drop by drop.
When he returns to a hive, the bee surrenders the nectar to one or two honey bees to the workers (they do not come out of the hive), which nectar from her mouth. Sometimes bees first feed on nectar bees or adult bees, but usually, the honey is actually honey. “Home” bees spend about half an hour chewing nectar like chewing gum.

From this nectar becomes easily digestible, and this also helps to protect it from bacteria later when the stocks are created.
Then the bees arrange the nectar in the hive, drop by drop. The water slowly evaporates from the nectar, from which the syrup becomes denser. Bees even accelerate the drying of the honey by waving its wings as a fad. When the syrup in the cell is of adequate strength, dark enough sticky, it officially becomes honey, and bees on the cells put the lid on the wax.
White wax comes in the form of cereal flakes from the waxy bee. Then the honey is kept until the time comes to eat.
Within a year, colonies of bees eat between 55 kg and 90 kg of honey. The extra honey can be harvested by beekeepers, who will then remove the honey-filled combs from the beehives and extract the liquid honey for human use.
So when you eat honey the next time, remember how do bees making honey and how much effort is invested in one honey jar.
