Making honey

  1. 1. MAKING HONEY <ul><li>A HONEYBEE’S WORK </li></ul>
  2. 2. DEFINITION OF HONEY <ul><li>Honey is the sweet pale substance, produced by honeybees from nectar or honeydew. </li></ul><ul><li>The bees store the honey into the hives and this substance serves of food in times of adverse weather. </li></ul><ul><li>Beekeepers make honey with domestic bees which works into artificial hives. </li></ul>
  3. 3. BEE’S HARVEST <ul><li>The first stage of bees labour is the harvesting of nectar in the flower. The bees are organized in society and the harvesting is the work of “foraging bees”. </li></ul><ul><li>Foraging bees aspire with their trunks nectar that is in the flower. The nectar of the flower contains honeydew which is composed of pollinator insects’ dung. </li></ul>
  4. 4. BEE’S HARVEST <ul><li>During the return flight, the foraging bee begins to develop the honey in its crop with an enzyme that is mixed with nectar in order to get a substance which is composed of glucose and sucrose. </li></ul>
  5. 5. BEE’S WORK INTO THE HIVES <ul><li>Once arrived in the hive, the bee regurgitates the nectar to a “recipient bee” that regurgitates and re-ingests the nectar, which is rich in water, mixing it with saliva and digestive juices to dry it. </li></ul><ul><li>This manufacturing process will keep the honey longer. </li></ul>
  6. 6. BEE’S WORK INTO THE HIVES <ul><li>Then, thin honey layers are settled on the artificial cells provided by the beekeeper. With this process the honey is stored into the hive, that has a very hot temperature inside, this allows water to evaporate partially. </li></ul>
