Do any other insects make honey?
Bumblebees & Stingless Bees
Yes they do! Some bumblebees make honey but they don't build up stores of it and whatever honey is produced is done on a much, much smaller scale compared to a honeybee. Honeybees are farmed and we only take what we need, leaving enough for the bees. The amount of honey bumblebees produce is so small it's it's not a good idea to harvest any of it. Stingless bees are most commonly found in warmer areas such as Australia and honey from stingless bees is known as sugarbag, which has a higher water content than traditional honey, giving it a runnier consistency plus slightly tangier taste.
Mexican Wasps & Honeypot Ants
There are only a few species of wasps that make honey and one in particular is the Mexican honey wasp. This wasp stores honey in its paper-like hive with locals harvesting hives to collect the wasp's larvae, which is considered a delicacy with some indigenous communities. Lastly on our list is the honeypot ant. These ants store honey in a way I bet you never imagined. They eat so much nectar that their abdomens swell to around the size of a grape. Once in the safety of their nest they then regurgitate honey to feed the colony.
