The bees create a draft through the hive by flapping their wings in unison to evaporate the moisture from the nectar until it thickens
HOW AMAZING IS THAT?
Yeah, I like bees. I think they're wonderful and useful. Since seeing concrete information about the honey industry being bad for them I'll be extra careful about avoiding honey. And I'll have something to say next time someone is annoyed at my pickiness. The thought of salivary enzymes will hopefully help when something which contains honey seems very appealing.
Also, one of the links someone posted gave information about other products I'd been wondering about. I really should have thought to search for this properly, but thanks!
