Honey bees make honey in their bee hives. They make it to feed their larvae - their 'eggs' that will grow into bees.
Here's how long it takes:
about three weeks
It takes 300 bees about three weeks to gather 450 grams of honey. On average, a hive contains 40,000 bees: how bees make honey.
Honey is made by bees out of the pollen they collect from plants. There are many different kinds of bee, and the details of how long it takes them to make honey is different for each type of bee. Most bees have to survive through winters, though, so they have to make honey quickly enough to not starve, since honey is also what bees eat.
