Pollen to honey?

I'm sorry if I'm being daft but can you explain what happens between bee pollen being deposited in the hive and honey being made? You take the pollen before it's made into honey? I can't see anything about that.

Many thanks.

Hi Miriam. Great question. Pollen is collected by something called pollen traps. These are special steel filters put in the hive that the bees crawl through as they re-enter the hive. The pollen traps knock the pollen off of the bees legs and it falls into a collector. Bee pollen is not made into honey - it is a source of food for the bees and is collected from plants that the bee's pollinate. Bee's collect nectar from plants and use that to produce honey.

Hope that helps!
