Our Yellowstone bees are tucked away in their hives for the winter while this New Zealand honey bee is enjoying a festive holiday visit to a beautiful Pohutukawa flower. We are kinda jealous!

Bee School is in Session!

The question today is
"How do honey bees make honey?"

Here is the process:
They go into the center of flowers and collect nectar, a sugary water. Plants produce nectar to attract pollinators like bees, and this nectar is the main food source for bees.

The honey bees will collect a lot of nectar from flowers and put it in a special pouch called a honey pouch. When the pouch is full, it tells the bee that it’s time to go back to the hive.

When they return to the hive, they put the nectar into cells—honeycombs— in the hive made especially for honey production. When the nectar’s in a bee’s mouth, it’s mixed with an enzyme called invertase that helps break down part of the sugar.

Once a cell is full, a group of bees will fan it to help evaporate out the water and make the mixture more concentrated. Honey is about 75 percent thicker than nectar, so lots of water needs to be removed.

When the bees are happy with it and it’s concentrated enough, they will cap the cell in which the honey is produced.

Pretty cool, huh?

2019 Honey Extraction Yellowstone Wild Honey

A lot of people ask us how we extract our honey, so I thought I would share a little video showing the extraction process. This video shows the process of 'uncapping' frames to open up the honey cells. These frames are then dropped in a large centrifuge for spinning out the honey.
