How Do Bees Produce Honey?

The nectar that honeybees gather from flowers is stored in a unique

stomach known as a "honey sac." The nectar is broken down by enzymes

in the honey sac. Upon returning to the hive, the worker bees transfer

this nectar to the cells of the honeycomb, where they incorporate

their own enzymes. Before beeswax is used to seal each complete

cell, worker bees use their wings to extract moisture from the nectar.
