Ever wondered how bees make honeycomb? Bees make honeycomb using wax from glands on their stomachs or abdomens. Generally speaking a bee needs to eat about two tablespoons of honey to make one ounce of wax, so making wax takes some time! Some of the bees then make circles in the wax using their body as a tool and then they go on to form the hexagon cells. But why hexagonal cells?
Well it seems bees are pretty good at maths and geometry too as hexagonal structures are particularly strong and waste no space when used as a building material.
Aren’t bees clever!
