The nectar that bees collect, and then place in comb generally has a higher moisture (water) content than finished honey. So it usually takes some time for the evaporation process to work and the honey to "cure". The bees may assist this evaporation by "fanning" air through/inside the hive. Once the honey moisture content gets to a point that the bees like, then they cap the honey cells.
"US Grade A" honey has less than 18.6% moisture content:
