comb honey June 27, 2010

June has been so gloomy and wet so it’s been tough for the bees to get out to collect everything to their liking. Although the moisture is bad for honey production, it’s good for making wax. Bees secrete wax from their abdomens and in order to do this they must drink a lot more water. In just one week our bees have drawn out a full super for comb honey. This is some serious work! With this sunny weather here to stay, we are anticipating comb honey in the very near future! yummmm
