How Bees Make Honey

Honey comes from flowers and is made by bees. They gather a sweet thing in the flowers called nectar. They get it in their hive and make honey.

Bees gather nectar from flowers. Later, they place it in a cell. Then they shoot chemicals in it. After they fan the nectar. And when it cools, it's honey. They eat some and save the the rest for winter.

A bear once tried to steal honey. But the bees fought back. But honeybees can only sting once. So, a honeybee went off and died. Beekeepers try to get some honey to sell. And their clothes help protect them from stings.

They get the honey from the cells and sell them in stores.
