7 of my hives are still cruising, will probably be out flying this weekend. I'm glad that I added supplemental sugar blocks with this cold weather not giving up.

Myth: Bees make honey.

How it spread: This one spread because, well, bees do make honey.

The truth: However, only a small number of bees make beeswax hives and fill them with honey. In fact, there are only seven species of true honeybees— out of the approximately 22,000 species— on the planet. Several other species not considered true honeybees make and store honey, too, but not in the amounts that honeybees do. Some of the remaining bee species make tiny amounts of honey to feed to their young, but most make no honey at all and don’t even live in hives. (Most bees are solitary, and make nests in the ground.)

Crazy weather here in central CT. 52F yesterday, 14F tonight. Still too cold to fill the feeders, glad I have the sugar blocks on.
