How Do Bees Make Honeycombs?

Answer

It's very interesting to learn how bees make honeycombs. Bees have wax glands on their abdominal area. A drop of wax comes out and forms a flake or scale of wax. The bee takes it off his abdominal area and chews on it for a while to soften it up a bit. Then he transfers it to the honeycomb. He forms a hexagonal shaped comb, and when it is filled with honey by the other bees, he puts a lid on it with a wax hexagon lid. You can find more information here: http://www.gpnc.org/honeybee.htm
