Do all bees make honey?

 

Actually, no!

 

Honey is made by social honey-making bees to feed the hive and the queen through the winter. Most bee species don’t make honey because they are not social bees and don’t live in a hive; most bee species are solitary bees.

Instead of making honey, solitary bees gather pollen and nectar and mix them into a pollen loaf. A pollen loaf provides all the food for one egg and the nesting chamber is sealed for protection.
