It takes about 60,000 bees, walks 55,000 miles collectively, and visits more than 2 million flowers to collect enough nectar to make a pound of honey.
Once the nectar is collected, the bee will store it in an extra stomach where it is mixed with the enzyme and then passed (by reflux) to the mouth of the other bee. This process is repeated until the nectar is partially digested and then deposited into the honeycomb.
There, bees use their wings to fan liquid nectar, help the water evaporate and produce thick substances, you know it is “honey.” The honeycomb is then sealed with liquid secretions from the belly of the bee, which hardens into beeswax. As Live Science reports:
“Away from the air and water, honey can be stored indefinitely, providing the bee with the perfect source of food for the cold winter months.”
