Firstly, honey bees consume nectar from flowering- plants. This is the main ingredient for the honey bee to make honey, through which they suck up the nectar droplets through the substance of the flower which is often called nectary.Honey bee

Then a process is there which is called inversion as in this when nectar reaches a honey bee stomach then it converts into complex sugar substances. Then a worker honey bee returns to a colony, then it may pass the nectar to another bee also known as the house- bee and this could be done within 7 to 12 days.

After this, they take the nectar in the colony and store it in a hexagon-shaped beeswax honey cell. Once, this nectar gets stored then they dry it up to make honey and give it a warm shield through their wings. After this, once the honey dries up they may put a lid on honey cells of fresh beeswax which is a kind of little honey jar.

As they do not reproduce, do not collect nectar, do not work on anything, etc. they are kept in the hives just for mating with the queen.
