Interesting Facts #9 “How the Bees Make Honey”

By June 30, 2021Interesting Facts
The Bees have glands which secrete an enzyme, known as ‘bee enzyme’. The nectar the bees collect from flowers or other nectariferous is mixed with the bee enzyme.

These are hexagonal shaped cells that the bees make out of beeswax and use it as a storage for the honey.
