What happens to the bees during the winter?
The bees in the outdoor hives huddle together around their queen and vibrate to keep warm. They eat the honey stored in their honeycomb to get energy to survive. Unfortunately, the bees in our indoor Observation Hive are not so lucky. They don’t store enough honey in such a tiny space, so they eventually die as winter temperatures decrease. A new group of bees is put in the Observation Hive each spring.
