Do bees use the pollen to make honey?

    Bees collect both nectar and pollen from flowers, to be taken back to the hive and used for food. However, it is only the sweet, sugary nectar that is made into honey. Though honey is an important bee food, it does not provide all the nutrition that bee larvae need to grow. For this reason, larvae are fed large amounts of protein-rich pollen, as well as honey.

    Yes bees make use of pollen and nectar to make honey. Pollen and nectar collected are fermented and because an exothermic reaction takes place during the process, the bees make use of their wings to fan the mixture to reduce the temperture of the hive.
