Honeybees need a life raft so they don’t drown while they munch on honey in a cup.

A paper towel resting on liquid honey can act as a life raft for bees that stop by for a quick meal.
Keep bees from drowning in honey, give them a life raft!
These bees are catching a quick meal from some of Winter Park Honey’s leftover samples. To prevent the bees from drowning in their own honey, I put a paper towel in the bowls. The paper towels act like life rafts, giving the bees something to stand on while they graze. Winter time is a tough time for bees. The flowers have pretty much stopped making nectar. So, these happy Winter Park Honey bees are taking advantage of a little surplus while they wait for the spring flow.
