In this essay you will learn about the way honey is made, and how bees are portrayed in books and movies.
Every single bee in a bee-hive has a specific job, and because of how well they are able to do it so well they can make the condiment we call honey.(“How Bees Make Honey”) There are usually 100,000-200,000 bees in one hive even though only 22700 are needed to make a jar of honey. To start the honey making process, the bee must collect two types of food. The first food they need is nectar which comes from flowers. The second food they need is pollen which comes from the anthers, the part of a stamen that contains the pollen, in flowers. Once the honeybee has found a flower it will suck up the nectar or pollen in the flower.
“As she sucks the nectar from the flower, it is stored in her special honey stomach ready to be transferred to the honey-making bees in the hive”(“How Bees Make Honey”). The bee then will collect nectar until their sac is full. The bee will then fly back to their hive where the honey is transported. The honey bee starts by giving the nectar to another bee inside, and they will transport it mouth to mouth.
The honey is then placed into the honeycomb hexagons and to finish this process the bees will cover the honeycomb hexagons with wax.(“How Bees Make Honey”) Eventually the honey will “bee” fed to the babies. Overall there is a very tedious yet rewarding process when creating honey. Bees are represented in so many ways in different forms of media, fictional or realistic.
