A clear cut illustration on the way which honey is produced by bees is sequenced in the given chart.

It is clear that the process involves seven steps, starting from making the hive to the extraction and use of honey for human consumption.

In the first stage, bees in group, start making the hive or honey comb, with several hexagonal-shaped cells. Once the work of these closely connected cells is nearly completed, they move out in search of flowers to collect nectar to fill the hives. Bees specialized in nectar collection, land on the top of the bloomed flowers and deposit it in the hives. The collection occurs multiple times a day.

In the fifth step, as most cells are filled with nectar, bees fan the cells to assist the evaporation of excess water content from there. The final stage involves the careful extraction of honey from the honey combs for human use.
