Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - A bee on the newly-built wax cells. We can see the different sizes of the cells for the males and for the others bees. The males' cells are a third bigger. Their width is 8.75mm and their depth 16-17mm as opposed to 6mm and 12mm for the worker bees' cells.Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - A bee on the newly-built wax cells.

Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - In the hive between two parallel honeycombs. The bees store the nectar in the wax cells and, fanning it, transform it into honey by lowering the moisture level from 80% to 17%. The buccal exchange between bees, the trophallaxis, plays a role in the making of the honey through the addition of enzymes.Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - In the hive between two parallel honeycombs.

Italian bee (Apis mellifera ligustica) - The melliferous bees produce the raw material, the wax, and build their nest's combs. It's a unique case in the animal kingdom. They transform the honey's sugar into a fatty substance using their wax glands. To produce 1.2 kilograms of wax, the bees use 7.5 kilos of honey. The wax-producing bees build round cells then heat up by hitting the frame section after section. Through this thermal action, the cells take on a hexagonal shape.Italian bee (Apis mellifera ligustica) - The melliferous bees produce the raw material, the wax, and build their nest's combs.

Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - Bees on the honey combs of a natural wax construction. The making of the honey by the bee begins in its crop during its flight back to the hive, thanks to an enzyme that transforms the sucrose into glucose and fructose. Arriving in the hive, the foraging bee regurgitates the nectar into a recipient bee. Then the long task of dehydrating the soon to be honey begins. To do so, it is placed as a fine film on the inner walls of the cells and is fanned by the worker bees to cause the evaporation of the excess water. When the honey has reached the required degree of moisture, it is transferred to other cells that will be sealed.Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - Bees on the honey combs of a natural wax construction.
