Inside the beehive each bee has a special job to do in order for the whole process to run smoothly. Bees communicate through bumps, noises and a waggle dance.
First of all it involves a lot of teamwork, the honey bees are busy foraging pollen and nectar from flowers.
The bee can carry nectar or pollen equivalent to her own weight.
Bees require nectar, the sugary juice that collects in the heart of the flower which contain numerous small grains called pollen.
Honey bees convert the sweet nectar they gather from flowers into honey and store it in honeycombs.
Bees use their wings to make a warm breeze and turn the nectar into honey by drying it out.
The nectar begins to concentrate, a process which prevents bacteria and other nasties from forming in the honeycomb, because bacteria and fungi cannot multiply in high concentrations of sugar.
This process is what allows honey to keep indefinitely!
For thousands of years honey has been used as a home remedy as it has many benefits for your health due to the antioxidants, minerals, enzymes it contains.
