Do bees die when honey is harvested?
Beekeepers harvesting honey from beehives, take away some of the honey the bees had stored. The harvesting time is planned carefully so that it does not harm bees. The amount of honey that is left in the beehive after harvesting, is enough to keep the bees going as they work to accumulate more honey.
Is it safe to eat Honeycomb?
Honey in the comb, pure and simple. And yes, the comb is totally safe to eat. People have been keeping bees — and eating the honeycomb — for several thousand years. As these cylinders are filled with honey, they are capped with yet another layer of wax.

Why is honeycomb hexagonal?
For bees to assemble a honeycomb the way bees actually do it, it’s simpler for each cell to be exactly the same. If the sides are all equal — “perfectly” hexagonal — every cell fits tight with every other cell. Everybody can pitch in. That way, a honeycomb is basically an easy jigsaw puzzle.

Will we die if bees go extinct?
Without bees, the availability and diversity of fresh produce would decline substantially, and human nutrition would likely suffer. Crops that would not be cost-effective to hand- or robot-pollinate would likely be lost or persist only with the dedication of human hobbyists.
Will we die if bees become extinct?
If all the bees died, it wouldn’t mean extinction for humans, but it would cause widespread hardship, and possibly famine. This is because a lot of the foods we regularly consume wouldn’t be available anymore. Blueberries and cherries would suffer as they are 90 per cent dependent on honey bee pollination.
How do bees make a hexagon?
They found certain bees would start out making circles in the wax using their body as a tool. Scientists don’t really know why it happens, but the bees seem to be using their body heat to melt the wax from a circle shape into a hexagon shape.
