What Happens to Honey Bees in Winter
As the temperatures falls and there is little or no food available in the foraging area, people often wonder, how do honey bees survive? Unlike other insects, bees do not hibernate in the cold months; they are active all winter long. As the weather gets colder, the bees will start preparing for winter.
Why does raw honey crystallise? Is it gone bad?
Raw honey is pure natural honey that hasn't been processed or heat treated. Crystallisation is a natural process and it doesn't change the quality of the honey and it is perfectly fine to eat. By simple chemistry, honey is an overly saturated liquid of natural sugars produced by the honey bee from the sweet nectar of flowers.
