Another point that bees consider during the construction of the honeycomb is the inclination of cells. By rising cells 13 in both sides, they prevent the cells from being parallel to ground. Thus, honey does not leak out from the mouth of the cell.
While working, worker bees hang onto each other in circles and get together in bunches. By doing this, they aim to provide the necessary temperature for wax production. Little sacks in their abdomen produce a transparent liquid, which leaks out and hardens the thin wax layers. Bees collect the wax with the little hooks on their legs. They put this wax into their mouth, chew and process it till it softens enough and shape it in the cells. Many bees work together to ensure the required temperature for the working place in order to keep the wax soft and processable.
There is another interesting point to note in the construction of the honeycomb:
The construction of the honeycomb is started from the upper side of the hive and continued simultaneously in two or three separate rows downward. While a honeycomb slice expands in two opposite directions, first the bottom of its two rows join. This process is realized in an astonishing harmony and order. Therefore, it is never possible to understand that the honeycomb actually consists of three separate parts. The honeycomb slices started simultaneously from different directions are so perfectly arranged that, although there are hundreds of different angles in its structure it seems like one uniform piece.
For such a construction, bees need to calculate the distances between the starting and connection points in advance and then design the dimensions of the cells accordingly. How such a delicate calculation can be done by thousands of bees have always impressed scientists.
It is obviously irrational to assume that this task, which man can hardly overcome is arranged by bees. There is such a delicate and detailed organization in force that it is impossible for them to carry it out on their own.
So how do they achieve this then? An evolutionist would explain this event to be achieved by "instinct". But what is this "instinct" that can address to thousands of bees at the same time and make them perform a collective task? The point is that it would not be sufficient even if each bee acted as per its own "instinct"; since what they do must necessarily be in concordance with each other. Due to this reason, they must be directed by an "instinct" coming from a unique source. The bees, who start constructing the hive from different corners and then combining their separate works without leaving any gaps and having all the cells constructed equally in the perfect hexagonal structure, must certainly be receiving "'instinctive" messages from the very same source!...
The term "instinct" used above is in fact nothing more than a 'futile name' just like mentioned in the Qur'an, the 40th verse of Surah Joseph. It is of no use to insist on such 'futile names' in order to conceal clear truths. Bees are guided from a unique source and thus they come to successfully perform tasks which otherwise they would not be able to. And it is not those namely 'instincts' that lead bees to that; but the 'teaching' mentioned in Chapter An-nahl of the Qur’an. What these tiny animals do is to implement the program that Allah has particularly given to them.
"And in the creation of yourselves and the fact that animals are scattered (through the earth), are Signs for those of assured Faith." (Surat al-Jathiya (Crouching), 4)
