A bee feeds on nectar and pollen from a flower. The nectar from the flowers is what the bee uses to make honey. The search for nectar is the responsibility of the worker bee who takes up as much as she can.
Bees are insects that are eaten by frogs, toads as well as purple asters. Birds, bears, raccons, spiders, ants, wasps also feast on bees. These flying insects have a monophyletic lineage within the super family Apoidea.
Bees eat nectar and pollen. That is basically sugar and protein. The bees use nectar to make homey. Honey is then used as the stored food to feed all the bees in the hive. Solitary bees do the same thing, but all by themselves. You can find more information here: http://pelotes.jea.com/honeybee.htm
You would think that bees would eat what they make which is honey. What a bee eats is nectar and pollen from flowers as we all know. The bees use the collected pollen to make honey.
