Thank you! :)Does someone know the answer to this?Hello! :)I'm trying to track down how many different species of bees make honey, but all I get is "Some other types of related bees produce and store honey, but only members of the genus Apis are true honey bees," or some other similarly vague answer.
I'm not looking for bees that store nectar (like the Bombus), but am curious if there are other bees who actually make honey. I am working on a presentation and want to know if my comment "only honey bees make honey" is accurate.
