How Do Bees Make Honey?

A queen bee may lay between 600-1,500 eggs per day during her three to four year reign. This fact and many others are contained in a video that shows scholars how bees turn nectar from flowers into honey, traveling thousands of miles to visit thousands of flowers and then returning to the hive to communicate where the best flowers are located. The narrator also presents information about the different types of bees found within each hive and the role they play in the production of honey.
