Honey is a sweet, viscous food substance
made by honey bees and some related insects.
Bees produce honey from the sugary secretions
of plants (floral nectar) or from secretions of
other insects (such as honeydew), by
regurgitations, enzymatic activity, and water
evaporation. Bees store honey in wax structures
called honeycomb’s. The variety of honey
produced by Honey bees (the genus Apis) is
the best-known, due to its worldwide
commercial production and human consumption.
Honey is collected from wild bee colonies, or
from hives of domesticated bees, a practice
known as beekeeping or apiculture.
