How Do Bees Make Their Hive?

January 20, 2017 by Bee 'Czar0

Bees go out during the day and gather food. In the gathering of their food, they make wax, which is the building block of their bee hive.

Bees make food called honey.

They use a sticky, glue-like substance called propolis as a binding to hold their hives together.

Nectar is used to produce wax, where sap is used to produce propolis.

Bees produce all of the building blocks to build their hive in their own body.

Bees can build 7 panels of honeycomb in only 5 days. It’s a very quick process.
