How do bees make honey so viscid?

This is what google gave me:

"It then regurgitates the inverted nectar into a cell of the honeycomb. Before they cap it they need to get rid of even more of the water content The hive bees beat their wings furiously, fanning the nectar to evaporate its remaining water content. As the water evaporates, the sugars thicken into honey."
