Thank you for choosing Ally Bees Honey

Where does honeycomb come from?


Honeybees make wax and form the wax into individual hexagon-shaped cells that fit together to make the honey comb. The first few weeks after the baby honey bee hatches, she has tiny glands on her abdomen that create wax. As she is fed nectar and pollen from the adult honeybees her body produces the wax. These glands mature after a few short weeks and she can no longer make the wax, her job description in the colony will change. Yet, during these early weeks of her life she has also been exercising her wings by fanning the hive to regulate the temperature.  And now her wings are strong enough to fly and forage for pollen and nectar.
