Where are the bees?

February 18, 2015 South Mountain Bees


People often ask what do bees do during the winter. Bees do not hibernate, but they will stay in a tight cluster keeping her majesty warm. On a mild day (40ºF or more), they will come out for a cleansing flight. There are no bathroom facilities within the hive! They all wait patiently for a warm winter day.
