- Honeybee species don’t hibernate during the winter, instead they stay active in their hives.
- During the winter, they will cluster together to keep warm and survive on the honey they have been hoarding weeks in advance.
- To preserve the honey, honeybees reduce the water content and add sugar which limits the ability of bacteria to grow in it and spoil it.
