Nectar as gathered by the bee contains about 70% water, but honey is about 17% water. The bees must remove the excess moisture from nectar by rapidly fanning their wings over the open cells in the hive to reduce the water content to ensure the honey won’t spoil and ferment.

A normal colony of honey bees contains only one QUEEN who may lay 2,000 eggs per day during her busy season. There may be 60,000 or more female WORKER bees who do all the work. There will also be several hundred male DRONES.
